What is with this white stuff coming down from the skies? Is someone of the opinion that it’s winter or something? Don’t they know that white stuff makes me cranky? “My GOD, man, do NOT make her cranky! (You wouldn’t like her when she’s cranky…)”
Yesterday: insubstantial flurries in Boulder gave way to sticky wet layer on street around 5:45 PM or so. I gave up on the biking thing and took the bus home. Yay bike racks on buses. That was 30th and Baseline. By 30th and Aurora (that’s two stops later, for those of you playing along at home), I’d seen my first traffic accident of the night.
Why do I pick snowy mornings to walk to Joe’s? When I know that NO ONE bothers to plow/shovel the sidewalk between Glenwood and Valmont? Dear reader, if you happen to own or manage property in Boulder, and you are not taking responsibility for clearing your sidewalk, it had just better be because you personally know that someone else is doing it. And I mean you’re on the phone with them after they finish the job, congratulating them on their accomplishment. If I hear that my neighbor’s wheelchair has gotten stuck in a snowdrift in below-freezing weather again and it’s your fault, I’m totally in ur house gettin medieval on ur d00dz.
And look! The sun is up AND IT’S STILL SNOWING. The hell is up with this, people? Fix it! Make it stop right now!
Oh look. An ambulance-and-fire-truck caravan heading north on 30th. Fa la la la effin’ LA.
When I finally crack and pack up the moving van for NOLA, it will be on a day such as this. And then I will crack further, because it won’t be safe to drive the moving van on these streets.
