Schools closed early.
Universities called off evening classes.
Concerts were cancelled.
Hospitals postponed surgeries for another day.
Holiday travel plans were forfeited in lieu of staying safe.
There was a rush on emergency supplies like flashlights, batteries, and thermal blankets.
Grocery stores were flooded with people doing their Thanksgiving meal shopping a day early because, as the weather reports foretold, there would be so much snow on Wednesday that you would not be able to get to a store.
By 4pm yesterday evening, nearly the whole state, from top to bottom, had shut down and people could talk about nothing else.
So, for the enjoyment of all of those of you not able to look out your window and see it for yourself, I give you...
THE GREAT BLIZZARD OF 2010!!!
Wait a minute. Let's try a close up to see if we can see that snow better.
Hmm.....maybe let's try the back yard instead.
Ummmm....uh.....no...WAIT! I see some! There on the wicker sofa!
Boy, I sure am glad all those weather guys went to meteorology school for all those years. But, hey, it is 13 degrees out, so maybe we should give them some credit?
They're all fired. I hope.
