Philly Held Hostage By Snow
By Wyatt Earp | December 26, 2010
Remember the good old days when East Coast cities could handle a few flakes of snow? Well, those days are gone forever.
A nor’easter is spanking the east, from Philly through New England. My town is expected to get 8-12 inches – um, of snow – before tomorrow morning. Earlier this afternoon, uber-incompetent Mayor Michael Nutter declared a snow emergency at 1pm – when there was about a quarter inch of snow on the ground. When did this town become chock full of puss-aahs?
In Philadelphia, Mayor Nutter held an afternoon press conference on the city’s readiness for the snow in the city and tri-state area.
PennDOT’s Gene Blaum says over 400 plows and salt trucks are on standby. Once snow begins, keep your distance from all plows, taper speed, and remove any parked cars from snow emergency routes before snow emergencies are declared so plows will be able to remove the snow quickly.
Let me also say how ghey the NFL has become. The league has postponed the Eagles/Vikings game because of the snow. Can you imagine? Canceling a FOOTBALL game because of snow. Vince Lombardi is rolling over in his grave.
