DC Snowmaggedon (as opposed to Snowpocalypse)

We haven't had a decent storm in the D-M-Va since 2004. Vengeance is mine, sayeth Mother Nature. And frankly, she's getting a little help as warmer seas in the Pacific are exacerbated by drought, dust, deforestation and pollutants in Asia, Australia...the seas drive waves of wet unstable air toward California...across the Rockies, dipping down toward the Gulf, sopping up even more moisture, races back up toward us, sitting fat and oblivious under a typical winter chill.

And what happens? 30 inches on top of the 6 that fell over a week ago. On top of the dirty, oily sooted, spotted patches of December's Snowpocalypse (almost dead from two days of 60 degree weather).

Government response? Well...hahaha

Enjoy the film--and this isn't even the worst of it.

did you see Hardball tonight, where they dogged out Fenty?

I'm from Chicago and Matthews even mentioned Bilandic. The man lost office because of a snowstorm. No matter what - our streets are clean.

took me an hour and a half to shovel away my 6-7 inches today, but once I dug out, I was on streets - main and side - that were passable. The main streets were dry as a bone, and the side streets were 60% of what the main streets were.

I thought you were sorta kidding about Fenty, Chambers.

But, this snow bullshyt ineptitude - he's got to go.
