Its official. President Obama has basically said we are a bunch of wimps. Why? Well, you just saw it in the video. the Washington area shuts down when it snows or ices. This phenomena has always been a subject for Washingtonians and its suburbanites to quarrel about.
All the kids in the region know the tricks. Sleep with your pjs inside out. Do a snow dance.
(Sorry about that commercial!)
Working parents have contingency plans for school being closed and schools going in late. Every school division has its different codes to alert folks as to who is expected to report for duty and who isn’t.
If things get real bad, the feds shut down. The new president is really going to roll his eyes over that when it happens. What part of it doesn’t he get? This is Washington, DC and we do love our snow days. We do not drive well in snow. We do not realize that an SUV does not make us immortal.
So what is it that we need to tell President Obama if fixing the economy, handling a 2 front war, the Gaza strip and the energy crisis start to bore him and he reads our blog? Why does Washington, DC shut down when it snows?
Are we wimps? Are Chicago folks just weather thugs? What’s the difference?
[Spellcheck let me down. Thanks to PWConservative who pointed out the error of my ways. I had misspelled ‘wimp’ in 2 out of the 3 places I used it. All fixed now.]
