Our Storm Of The Century©

As if waking from a nightmare

We woke to the end of yet a third storm

It brought us

Two more feet of snow

Impassable streets and roads

Parking bans

Deplorable T Service

Cancelled flights

Collapsing Roofs

Chaotic supermarkets

Bare  store shelves

School closings

Days off from work

Talk of cancelled April Vacations

Snow plow deaths

Missing Pets

Inaccessible fire hydrants

Burning homes

Fire related deaths

and

Skidding Cars

On the bright side…

We now have snow for skiing into April

Picturesque views

Free partitions from unwanted viewers

And 2nd place for the snowiest month of all time

While we are breaking records

And praying for no more significant snow

Our friendly groundhog has gone into hiding

Uncertain whether he’ll show his face at all next year

We are wondering

If our trains will ever fully recover

If we will ever get to enjoy a family vacation any time soon

And

If we will be able to look back on this winter without contempt

If you were lucky to survive then be glad that you saw first hand

A record-breaking Winter no one will soon forget
