I seem to recall US President Obama referring to a big snowstorm as “Snowmageddon,” and in light of the (supposedly) oncoming storm to hit Ottawa, I’ve decided to revive this lovely new addition to English vocabulary. How very clever .Well done, Obama.
There’s supposed to be anywhere from 20 to 30 centimetres of snow. Already we’ve seen … nothing. Absolutely nothing. There hasn’t been a single flake of snow. Not one ice pellet. Not even some rain-to-soon-become-deadly-ice. I must say I’m having my doubts.
For the “worst storm of the year” (I suppose we’ll have to overlook the fact that it’s only February to fully appreciate that comment), you’d think we’d start seeing some of it by now. I guess I’ll be the judge of how bad it is tomorrow morning, when I have to trek to court in business attire. Nothing says, “Good morning, your honour” like a boot full of snow and windburn on your face.
Well it seems to be nearing 12:30 a.m. and I was planning to sleep early. This seems to happen to me a lot. In any case, Kitty and I will be off to the courthouse tomorrow to cover a trial for our next journalism assignment. More to come on all that judicial fun.
Highlight of the day: I found a place that sells GIANT muffins for $1! It’s actually more like a mini cake than a muffin, so I was a happy camper. I think I will be revisiting those beauties when midterm season kicks into full gear.
