Over the weekend maybe. Monday morning, no thanks . . .

Bad news for Industry Borough though:
Fire destroys public works building, salt and plow trucks, in Industry Borough - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Well, yeah... I can see that. Funny how fast we retirees forget all about things like Monday morning commutes and the joys of having bored kids home from school. Now all I think about is how pretty it looks.

The progression of this storm:

1. Giant Eagle execs high-five as their stores are picked clean
2. People ask why the roads aren't being pre-treated
3. Storm hits, plows only do a portion of the main roads, ignore side streets
4. People complain
5. SCR demands tax increases

The circle of life.

In terms of snow shovels, they make special ones with telescopic handles, so you can fit it in your trunk. If you are only going to occasionally shovel out your car, it should be sufficient.

Plus, it could come in handy if you get stuck on the road somewhere. If your wheels are spinning uselessly, you can use it to shovel out the snow from under your tires to gain some traction.

The bad part is that I need to do my normal grocery shopping. Now I'll have to deal with all the panicked people.

I did my normal grocery run last night before the panicked rush to clear the store shelves of milk, bread and eggs begins.

A winter storm watch was just posted, so now the general public will be aware of this storm and prepare for the apocalypse.
