Store water, gorp, and fetch my musket

It's snowing again tonight. Will be interesting to see how many people show up for work tommorrow if it keeps up. The office cleared out pretty early this afternoon in a panic over the 1/2" of snow that had fallen and the fourteen individual flakes that were rumored to have not melted somewhere on Seattle's highways, leaving a sense of imminent certain death in the air.

Years ago, when I first moved to Portland, I was shocked by the behavior of people in the Pacific Northwest when snow started to fall. Since then, I've realized it's because all of them can be grouped into one of two categories:

  • People that once lived in a place with snow-filled winters (eg. Montreal, NY, Denver, etc), or,
  • People that seize the conch, smash Piggy's glasses, and start to feast on the still-warm flesh of their soccer-playing teammates the moment white stuff starts to fall from the sky.

Jeez, people! Chill! (Pun intended, of course)
