We're a Nation of Snow Pussies

I've been a little under the weather this week (See how I took the snow theme and turned it? That's just the sort of quality writing you've come to expect here at B&E!), so I've been working from home.

This morning I woke up feeling a bit better, but because last night the local news outlets were freaking out about the Blizzard of 2010, I opted to work from home again today, as did many of my fine colleagues.

I finally got a chance for a quick walk right around 5:00 PM.

Don't get me wrong: it was a good snow. It was not, however, a blizzard. Why the hell do we get so fucking crazy about a little snow? Was it seriously that big a deal?

Anyway, the city looks nice during a snow.


I love a Smart Car! Look at the Smart Car in the snow! I have to admit that it looks less Smart!


If you need to rest, take a load off on this snow sofa!


And our neighbors made a snowman! Right outside one of my favorite facades in Sunnyside!


Anyway, it was a fun snow.

When we left this AM, the snowman had been decapitated. And de-torso-tated, too.

I feel the same is true for thunderstorms. I seem to remember back in the olden days that we had a severe thunderstorm warning when there was a motherlode storm packing some 80mph wind, giant hail and torrential rain. The kind of storm that is so serious the sky turns black and you think nighttime is upon you. Now during storm season we have what seems like 50 "severe thunderstorms" a week. Most of which I feel fall under the category of fairly strong. We seem to have a need to make everything extreme any more.
