Morning in Minnesota or “WTF is wrong with you? It snows here! Surprise!!!”

OK, this is Minnesota.  It’s January.  It SNOWS here in January.  It has for centuries.  It will continue to do so until we get that Global Warming that Al Gore promised us.  Most of the metro drivers are from here.  They were born here.  They grew up here.  They went to school here.  They learned to drive here.  They got married here (more than once in some cases).  They raised or are raising their kids here so they can be just like them.

Why is it so difficult for them to drive on 1 inch of snow???  Hey reality check time – that SUV you’re driving may make you go fast on the greasy roads but it aint gonna help you stop any faster.

Wheeee!!!!  Look at me!!!  My Yukon spins around and around and around and around.

And then they have the audacity to act surprised that it happened.

That low “thump, thump, thump” sound you’re hearing is me beating my head on my desk.

And people wonder why I come in to work so early.  Is it the cocktail hour yet?  It’s gotta be that time somewhere in the world.
