Breaking my new rules for a little fun input.
I live approximately directly between Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Chicago, Illinois. What that means for sports affiliations is for another time, what that means for weather, however, is much more interesting.
In the last few days we have received a total of 30 inches of snow. Which is lovely once it’s all plowed and shoveled and snow blown away. But sadly, still isn’t finished. Oh yes, our driveway is done enough to be accessible, and for the most part the roads are okay. But, take the major cities for example. Milwaukee is still shut down, with exception to those insane chancellors at University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee who’ve decided that plowed roads mean little to a 70% commuter campus.
Now since this is Wisconsin after all, I do need to make some concessions. Yesterday, after I finished cleaning off the part of my driveway that is clean I went to work. At Dairy Queen. We were the only restaurant in town that was open. We had two people staffed. It was busy as hell.
Because, as you know, two and a half feet of snow, well that’s nothing.
