“We’ve never had this much snow!” So whined Governor Malloy at a press conference held today to demonstrate his firm hand on the helm. The trouble with ignorance like his is that people believe him – hey, he’s the gov, right? Malloy is apparently still undecided whether to blame our current crop of white stuff on global warming or scary looking rifles, or both, but when he does, I’m sure his followers will believe that, too.
Here’s a snippet on another snowstorm, one Dannel didn’t study in school:
The official snowfall measurement for Hartford was a mere 19 inches, but that was taken at Trinity College, where the howling winds of the Blizzard of 1888 were hurling the snow down to Broad Street. Unofficial, and probably more accurate, measurements for this city were 36. Middletown got 50 inches,Marlborough 48, New Hartford 42.
