Tomorrow is going to blow

So, a little update on the old blog....

The Valentine's Day Storm is coming!
The Valentine's Day Storm is coming!

The National Weather Service is predicting a mix of snow/sleet/rain/armageddon to hit Massachusetts starting around 4AM tomorrow. Snow totals will be around 5 inches around Boston with as much as 2 feet in the western part of the state. The Weather Channel has an omnious looking graphic (pictured above) to explain to those who can't read. Go buy your bread and milk now, kids.

I'll be working a 12-hour shift tomorrow, because sadly not only does my mother think I'm essential, the Governor does too. So I'll let you know if anything good happens. I should be pretty quiet, though.

Tomorrow is also Valentine's Day. A wonderful day that makes those in a relationship shell out money for dumb things like teddy bears and chocolate. Those who are single will shell out money on Cheetos and booze, which is the normal Wednesday night. If you couples took your V-day money and put it in a money market account, you might be able to buy a car in 25 years. Think about that.

And for those single people, myself included, apparently we have a day too. It's February 15th, so we get sloppy seconds. For all those people who are in a couple, have some good lovin' tomorrow night. And for those single folks, make sure you love yourself tomorrow night.

What the FUCK is happening outside? There was water and slush three inches deep wherever I stepped, and the rain was blowing up under my umbrella. I was drenched by the time I got to work. Drenched.

And everyone was asking, "How is it outside, still cold?" and I normally try to be blase, but I couldn't. I was like, "Danger! The rain's blowing sideways! Beware!"

I couldn't stop talking about it. I was like Quint telling the story of the USS Indianapolis, but wetter and more agitated.

I have some chamomile tea at my desk now, though, and I've stopped flinching every time rain hits the window.
