Snowed In









This is getting ridiculous.  It's been snowing and it just won't stop.  This is NOT Seattle. I've been here nearly twenty years and I've never seen it like this.  Sure we get the occasional flurry and a couple of inches which freaks the city out.  This has sent it into a coma. This city shuts down in the snow -- there is no infrastructure to support removal of it.  When you get 9.5 inches (note the ruler in the picture on my patio table), the world comes to an end here.  So you sit and you wait it out and you shovel the driveway into a snow mountain since there is no place to put it.  So much for the dream of a motorcycle road trip before the legislative session starts.
