Stay Safe Out There

I heard a few reports about a nasty snow storm in the New York State area. I have friends who were hit by it but didn't know too much. Then I read more about it and damn, it's not that pretty. Snow is beautiful. Snow storms are not so much really.
Okay that's still pretty
It turns out that so far five people have died and plenty of people are still stuck in the snow on the interstate and in their cars. I'm also hearing a lot of good things though about people sticking together and opening their doors for their neighbours who got trapped. People aren't quite home but they are in the warm.

I hate to sound preachy but winter is always a time to remember the homeless who are stuck outside. Even outside of snow storms and natural disasters, keep people in mind when you're out and about and help as many people as you can. Be a decent human being.
Oh Wile E. how I miss you
It turns out things are getting pretty bad across the whole US and not just New York State. Temperatures are getting pretty low so make sure you stay warm folks. Stay safe too. Ask yourself if a trip is really worth it and if you find someone stuck in the cold offer them a helping hand.

Be a decent human being when you can, and a smart one most of the time, if not all the time.

  1. It is pretty bad in the Toronto area right now but is supposed to warm up next week.

  2. Buffalo is not around the corner, but it's plenty close enough. Here it is, just November. Good grief, I am not looking forward to the winter. As soon as we can, we're moving south.

  3. I saw some pictures on the internet and heard about the news. The cause behind it is pretty neat, it's essentially turning a lake or two into snow and dumping it over nearby cities. Still, I already think "fuck this" when we get as much as 3cm. People who live there and experience these kinds of things "regularly", they're strong folks.

  4. Someone told me it doesn't snow in England. That is not true is it? It has not snowed yet where i'm at, but usually if there is a storm out east it comes our way fairly soon.
