This was the view from my apartment two weeks ago:
This is the view today:
Winter, that cold and calculating season, has successfully broken through Fall's defenses and won it's first significant battle. Even though this is the first snow -- and so it's kinda exciting and beautiful and all that crap -- this is no time to embrace snow angels and sledding!!
We must go to Anti-Winter Defense Level DefCon 4.
Deploy the Chili and Cornbread!
Load Ratatouille, and snuggle in your down comforters ON THE DOUBLE!!
And Pray, men, PRAY like you've never prayed before for a Snow Day! Otherwise none of us might ever see Spring again.
It's up to all of us. This war can't be won single handedly. Over and out.
