Eff this Weather!

I’m a little confused. Okay, I’m totally effing baffled!

I guess I’ve never really thought about it THAT much before, but WHY do some folks INSIST on NOT removing the snow from the top of their vehicles after a storm? Usually it’s not much of an issue in Chester County because, we usually just have to deal with the occasional snow “burst” or a full blown blizzard every five to ten years.

But for some reason, the winters from 2009 through 2011 seem to be FURTHER proof that Global Warming IS a fact and that the Ice Age Cometh OR as the college-educated, over-paid, under-knowledgeable, albeit pretty “Meteorologists” tell us, it’s just an EL NINA.

It’s not even the end of January this year and we seem to be breaking, or soon to be breaking, snowfall records for the year. Forecasts indicate that we are in for a very long, very snowy winter. That being said, we SHOULD have LOTS of practice at not only driving in it, but in cleaning it from our vehicles BEFORE we venture out into the street with the rest of the snow-freed public.

The other day, I’m driving down Route 202 south to work. Some “chick” in front of me loses an entire 7-inch thick IMPRESSION of her car (imagine an automobile ice sculpture) which flies like frickin’ Chitty Chitty Bang Bang right on top of my windshield! Luckily, the windshield held up and I didn’t need to swerve into another vehicle. Seriously?! Could she not THINK that the snow she NEGLECTED to remove would eventually hit someone? Sigh. I just don’t get it, but then she’s probably the type of person who drinks milk out of the container and leaves a swig of backwash for her roommate.

I have a sidebar theory about these types of folks. THEY are the ones most likely to survive an airplane fire or a sinking ship because they’re the ones who step over everyone else to get to the exits. Survivor syndrome be damned!

Try being less self-involved and do ME a favor? Clean off your ENTIRE car before the next snowstorm. From what I understand, it’s the LAW in Delaware.
