First Person: Another Snow Day
Fate smiled on me the past two weeks. A pair of whopper storms fell on my days off, and I had the pleasure of watching the snow fall from the big office chair at my home computer desk.
Fate got its revenge Tuesday morning.
All indications were a nuisance storm was on the way, without about five inches falling across our area. The timing was poor-- right in the middle of the morning commute. It would dangerously complicate rides to work and school.
Well, there was a quick burst of snow around 3 AM. It was followed by a several hour lull that seemed interminable. Try standing in dry weather and describing all the problems caused by one inch of snow. You know what's interesting about one inch of snow? Nothing.
We also gave a quick tour of our little neighborhood, including a snow covered bike chained to a pole, and a restaurant's grease dumpster.
