Okay, LOOK, Boston...

'Fess up -- who out there has been dreaming of a white Christmas?

Whoever it is, KNOCK IT THE HELL OFF.

(Okay, actually, it's still very pretty to walk through falling snow. And at least it's *warmed up* to the 30s. And the inch or so of snow that we got over the ice definitely gives better traction. But still.)

Seriously. It's pretty, but I have a doctor's appointment to get to! WAIT UNTIL THE WEEKEND, OKAY?

It's not too bad -- as I say, walking is actually easier because of the traction. Still, be careful!

This is my car, half an hour ago. It's still coming down. I can has wormhole?
Dec. 20th, 2007 05:05 pm (UTC)
Oooo, that's not good.

The more this stuff comes down, the more nervous I get about where I left my car. Yes, stupid me -- I think I took my shovel OUT again and didn't put it back in. *headdesk*

I just pray my car hasn't been towed by the time I get back to it, and that I can get it out of the spot it's in.

Holy bat dren! You're snowed in! *hugs*

Seriously, that's a lot of snow there too. Meep.

Last Thu. forecast: 4-6 inches. Actual accumulation: 9-12 inches.
Last Sun. forecast: 3-5 inches. Actual accumulation: 8-10 inches.
Today's forecast: 1-2 inches. Updated forecast: 2-5 inches.

Yeah, I blame the weathermen.

Do they dance topless *and* give accurate weather?
Dec. 20th, 2007 05:28 pm (UTC)
Y'know... I hear they do that sort of thing in Eastern Europe. Crazy ex-commies.

Seems fair to me. Let's get the pitchforks and the little rakey things. And the torches; don't forget the torches.

And the torches; don't forget the torches.
Of course. How else are we supposed to keep warm?

Re: And the torches; don't forget the torches.
Exactly my point!

I would very much like you to eventually make the acquaintence of a dear friend of mine who is going to law school out in Boston, who is also a comics maker and weirdo punk rock chick. her name here is pants_of_doom.

Hey, you! :D *hugs* (I'm not sure how much the orca thing was forefronted in college, I guess. That said, I'm not sure what other username I could have used -- barring my real name, of course -- that would have been *more* "me".)

What's been up with you?

I still draw; almost all fan-art stuff. I have some stuff up at sgaana.deviantart.com

Will definitely have to look up your friend! Her stuff looks neat!

I kinda hope it snows when I'm up there in January -- like just after I arrive, stopping just before I leave so it doesn't screw up my flights. XD
Dec. 20th, 2007 05:07 pm (UTC)
Yes, that would be ideal, wouldn't it? >_< So of course, that's not what it'll do.
Dec. 20th, 2007 04:43 pm (UTC)
Yay, snow! I got my wish!!

Take that, grumpy pants!
Dec. 20th, 2007 05:07 pm (UTC)
I'm not as grumpy as I COULD be. But my car had better not be towed, and I'd better be able to get it out of the spot it's in!
Dec. 20th, 2007 06:56 pm (UTC)
Jerk. I've been stuck at Logan since 8:30 because of you.
Dec. 20th, 2007 07:09 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry for your getting stuck.

But: Happy Snow!!
Dec. 20th, 2007 04:53 pm (UTC)
Well, at least it's pretty?

Oh, it's PRETTY, all right. Few things are prettier than Harvard in the snow. I just wish I felt less nervous about my car...
Dec. 20th, 2007 05:46 pm (UTC)
I'm so over the snow already. *sigh*
Dec. 20th, 2007 07:52 pm (UTC)
~sigh~ Know what you mean. With my disabilities walking in the snow and ice is very nerve-wracking; I've been a mess this week every time I've had to leave the house. Of course living at the top of Winter Hill, I've really enjoyed watching the snow, but then when I slide down that same hill it's not so much fun.

I don't have a car to worry about anymore, so at least I'm free from digging it out of the snow, or snow plows, or which side of the street I can park on in a snow emergency or finding a parking place that isn't being jealously guarded, or getting a ticket because you didn't dig your car out fast enough.

I don't miss all that, but on the other hand I have to deal with standing at the bus stop in the cold waiting for buses that don't show up, taxi companies that take half an hour to get through to on the phone and then take an hour to show up when they say they'll be there in 15 minutes. You have to add in an extra hour and a half to your travel time to get to your destination anywhere near on time.

Guess you can't win when it snows in Boston, huh?

*hugs* I've been thinking a lot about how hard it is for folks with disabilities to get around in this. It's just absurd. I appreciate the difficulties inherent in snow removal and stuff, but... One of the things that's surprised me is that there isn't more effort to at least get sand out there on top of the ice. Yes, I know it can't be chipped away easily, and that you can't always use salt, but... hello?

I'm fortunate in that I do have off-street parking for my car at home. So that's one worry I don't have!

:::sidles over to you carefully:::

:::clears through nervously:::

:::raises hand just ever so slightly:::

Ok, it was me. And I can't help it, every night I dream of snow. Perhaps it's the fault of this icon? :::points:::
