Got a fair amount of snow last night. I've come to notice that the snow makes this town look really good. It's probably just the fact that all the run-down buildings and infrastructure gets covered up by white stuff. It also has a subtle way of emphasizing problems, such as when our local staff highly suggests shoveling accumulation off of our balcony so that it doesn't collapse. Good times. I also get a kick out of the snow removal techniques. For as much as they get here you would think that they would have imporved somewhat. But no, people shovel with a flat piece of metal on a stick, nothing curved or fancy. You even see some babushkas using brooms made of twigs tied together. I have yet to see a snowblower.
Oh yeah, schools and government are still open, suck it Fairfax.
