When Snow Attacks!
My Jeep is parked on the other side of the tree that fell, fortunately completely missing it. The Weather-Attacker Storm Team predicted 4-8 inches of snow. We got two feet. So, MK and I spent the better part of Saturday and Sunday shoveling snow, and aiding some misguided college kids driving around in cars who became stuck right in front of our condo. Early Saturday evening there was a carload of Duquesne students drinking beer and smoking pot trying to push an Accord up the unplowed street. I took them out a shovel and suggested that they back down 13th Street to the main drag. Later we got more Duquesne students, this time in some kind of Toyota, again stuck, but this time they at least had shovels. Same result: Backing down 13th St.
This went on all Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
Eh, when I was young we ventured out too no matter the weather, so for them I'm sure it was all in fun.
Next up: More snow starting tomorrow! Wee! The side roads aren't cleared yet, so it'll be fun to see how bad things can get! I've got plenty of food and toilet paper...
