Bill de Blasio Sick of All This ‘Obnoxious’ Snow
Politicker ^ | 2/4/14 | Colin Campbell

Posted on 02/04/2014 9:12:07 AM PST by Jean S

Bill de Blasio is now visibly annoyed at the constant blizzards bombarding New York.

Speaking at a press conference this morning, the new mayor repeatedly sighed and expressed his exasperation at Mother Nature, which is set to deliver the fourth significant snowstorm of his tenure later today, with yet more bad weather forecast for later week.

“The snowstorm situation is reaaaally getting a little too common,” began Mr. de Blasio as he began update on tonight’s approaching storm.

“So,” he added, pausing for a breath, “let’s talk about tonight!”

“The next snowstorm,” he continued, again pausing a beat, “will start roughly … between 12 midnight and 2 a.m.” However, those numbers, he said, were according to the National Weather Service. “As I’ve emphasized, the National Weather Service has a habit of updating their forecasts and things change. I’m now learning that forecasts can change–meaning more snow.”

Mr. de Blasio’s storm response has received mixed reviews. While his first brush with the white stuff was generally regarded as successful, he was heavily criticized after his second encounter for inadequate plow service in the Upper East Side and Staten Island. Yesterday’s storm also drew complaints.

Reflecting on the last few weeks, Mr. de Blasio had clearly had his fill.

“We’ve had this ridiculous run of storms the last few weeks. It would be nice if this would be the end of them this weekend,” he offered. “We can’t say that for sure.”

And, discussing his habit of shoveling his own sidewalk later in the press conference, Mr. de Blasio tossed in yet another aside.

“I think I did three rounds of shoveling and three rounds of salting yesterday,” said the mayor. “This is really getting obnoxious.”

It’s going to get a lot more ‘ridiculous’ - three storms in the pipeline for the next week.

All he has to do is declare the snow Conservative snow and it’ll leave on its own.

I’m surprised that de Blasio hasn’t declared that snow is racist. Every bit of it is white.

He should pass a law against snowstorms.

It will be as effective as all the other stupid laws liberals pass.

I guess the snow in my backyard must be Asian.

Can’t he just demand the snow get redistributed to other parts of the country? After all, AZ needs to get its fair share!

A politician shaking their fist at Mother Nature? Yeah, there's a real rational act...

Jeez, how are people so stupid as to elect 'politicians' like this?

I heard from a confidential source that he sacrificed a goat to Mother Gaia, and now he’s really mad that she’s refusing to cooperate.

He sure whines like Obama. When will he start blaming Bush.

You mean Mayor Canute can't do anything about that?

Saw two snowplows last night, one right behind the other. One had his plow up, the other had his down. OK, I give up: and the purpose was?

By the way, can’t we get Ready, Willing, and Able to clear the pedestrian crossings? They are almost all totally impassable. All it takes is creative use of a shovel to make a pathway for the water so it can flow downhill. But Nooooo . . .

Well, you shouldn’t pi$$ off the ground hog, Bill. It’s six more weeks of winter just for that shadow thing. What did you expect when you dropped him on his little fuzzy head?

He probably thinks the snow is Conservative and he wants it to leave the state
