I’m not sure what’s thicker: the snow or their skulls
at least the snow will melt, eventually
Great. Should have the caption: “Mother Nature trumps pols”
While visiting an aunt and uncle in a Maryland suburb of D.C. back in the 60s, I noticed that my uncle came down to breakfast each morning and peered out the window at his neighbors driveways. He was a private sector engineer who was heavily involved in the development of the first instrument landing systems for airports. Nearly all his neighbors held government jobs.
One morning I asked him about his routine of peering at their driveways. He responded that he was always happy to see their cars still there as it meant that they werent downtown wasting office supplies and making life miserable for the rest of us.
After spending 30+ years trying to make a living in what little remains of the private sector here, I fully understand why he felt the way he did.
And can someone tell me why, when there is some lower severity situation or natural event, a government sends out word that only ESSENTIAL EMPLOYEES SHOULD REPORT FOR WORK? It begs the question WHY THE HELL DOES A TAXPAYER FUNDED BUREAUCRACY EVEN HAVE NON-ESSENTIAL EMPLOYEES??
Any when think the God is sending a message to the Diaper wearing Preschooler in the Whine House?
