Return of the Blizzard
In a follow-up to last week’s snowstorm, Snowpocalypse II dumped another 10-12 inches across the metro, and pretty much shut down the city.
The dogs and I didn’t mind too much, since it was perfectly possible to
snuggle get work done on the couch in the home office.
And then, suddenly, it was no longer possible to be so productive. Right after I snapped that Instagram of Charlie Machete playing office, we heard a loud pop across the street.
A transformer had exploded, and the power would be out for the next 20 hours or so.
Reportedly, some 100,000 people lost power at some point during the storm.
As one of them, I feel incredibly lucky that friends and family offered us a respite from the cold overnight.
Bonus: The sleeping accommodations included a fireplace and Charlie Machete’s spastic girlfriend Roxy.
Wherever you are today, I send you warm wishes!
