Title: East coast snow
Post by: unix on January 13, 2019, 07:09:38 am
It looks lovely. Too bad we didn't get it for Xmas. Or New Year. So this is a delayed New Year situation here.

We were hammered here in Ohio.

It is a mandate that in winter, you must face gargantuan snowfalls at the same time that you're sick and miserable with infections that some unclean lowlife passed to you in public. I've been sicker than fuck for a week. I am go Goddamned tired of feeling terrible! And there's so much brute force labor to perform just to get out of the driveway.

It' s not snowapocalypse, it's flupocalypse.
I hear you.

I got this really strong hospital grade antibacterial soap called Hibicleans, gets really high ratings on Amazon.  Spray my hands all the time.

I heard parts of DC got 4" - 7" of snow?

In Wisconsin fly-over-country we have sunshine and no snow. Usually we are buried by now but we've been having lots of rain.

That's completely amazing. You're like, what, 50-100 miles from Hudson Bay? :P

8" reported here in southern Ohio. Fun times, not.
