February 10, 2010 – Blizzard Breaks Snowfall Records
And still, Mrs. Crankipants has not seen snow plow one. Heh.
Pennsylvania shut down major highways Wednesday after the roadways were rendered nearly impassable by a winter storm that brought much of the state to a standstill.
Governor Ed Rendell ordered the closure of Interstate 76 and I-676 in Philadelphia, leaving the city of 1.5 million with only a single major artery, Interstate 95. The state also closed I-476 in suburban Philadelphia and I-83, I-78, I-176 and part of I-81 in central and eastern Pennsylvania.
There’s more below the fold.
After more than 28 inches fell in Philadelphia over the weekend, the Eyewitness Weather Team is predicting anywhere from 18 to 24 more inches will blanket the city before the storm moves over.
This snow storm officially breaks the snowfall record, making 2009-2010 the snowiest season ever.
This frakkin’ snowstorm is costing me money. I had a court notice for a murder trial tomorrow. Since it is my day off, it means that I get an automatic four hours overtime just for showing up. The damned snowstorm closed the courts today . . . and will do so tomorrow. Rat bastards.
There is good news, however. Over the weekend, I shoveled the driveway, sidewalk, and steps of my elderly neighbor, Her daughters told me it wasn’t necessary, but I did it anyway. When they offered to give me some money, I shooed them away. Any hoo, they called the missus and asked what I liked – she told them.
Yesterday, the youngest daughter came to the door with my gift: a case of Guinness. Brilliant!
