Pity the crowds at Tod’s Point
Greenwich Time warns of impending “Snowmageddon”
Filed under Uncategorized
No snow in NYC yet. Watch it fall on the Times Square Earth Cam.
Snowplow guy will still say he came twice and charge double!
That’s the 47th street cam above; don’t forget to check out the other cams like the crossroads. To bad they closed off Bwy and made it pedestrian (not crossroads anymore). Crossing over from Bwy to 7th Ave. used to be one of my favorite driving experiences.
Speaking of snow storms. When I was in my teens, I went hunting with some friends. Me, a froggy French guy and a gook. We got lost in the woods, and we knew a snow storm was coming. Being the take charge type of guy that I am, I said, we need a plan. I can build us a shelter, the frog guy must know how to cook, so I assigned that to him, and I tasked the Jap guy with foraging for supplies.
No sooner were the words out of my mouth, and the Jap guy runs into the woods like his ass was on fire. I figured he was really motivated. So I built the shelter, the frog boy cooked up a few good meals, and we hunkered out the storm for two days. Gook boy was no where to be found. He never came back.
So after two days, the storm is over, and I tell froggy we better go look for the Jap. We go deep into the woods. We search and search and search. This guy is no where to be found. So we decide to give up, and as we are heading back, this chink suddenly jumps down from a tree, throws up his arms, and yells SUPPLIES!!
If we get snowed in can we start a stupid joke thread?
Heck, snowed in or not, I’ll toss this in:
On January 13th, a group of HELLS ANGELS, California bikers were riding along Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena when they saw a girl about to jump off Pasadena’s Suicide Bridge. So they stopped. John, their leader, a big burly man of 53, gets off his Harley, walks through a group of gawkers, past the State Trooper who was trying to talk her down off the railing, and says, “Hey Baby . . . whatcha doin’ up there on that railin’?” She says tearfully, “I’m going to kill myself!!” While he didn’t want to appear “sensitive,” John also didn’t want to miss this “be-a-legend” opportunity either so he asked, “Well, before you jump, Honey-Babe . . . why don’t you give ol’ John here your best last kiss?” So, with no hesitation at all, she leaned back over the railing and did just that . . . and it was a long, deep, lingering kiss followed immediately by another even better one. After they breathlessly finished, John gets a big thumbs-up approval from his biker-buddies, the onlookers, and even the State Trooper, and then says, “Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had! That’s a real talent you’re wasting there, Sugar Shorts. You could be famous if you rode with me. Why are you committing suicide?” She explained, “My parents don’t like me dressing up like a girl.”
It’s still unclear whether she jumped or was pushed.
Street cam is now showing lots of guys pushing snow around in Times Square. Very exciting. http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/?cam=tsstreet
Bus spun off the road in Soundview Avenue Old Greenwich, leaning on a couple of big trees
You mean Sound Beach? anything open down there?
Never mind – I see it was Soundview in Greenwich by Arch. Power out.
They keep shoveling and shoveling the same spot over and over again in Times Square. They’ve been at it all night and all day.
Having lived in Canada for twenty years, I learned not to do that and wait until it stops snowing to start shoveling. Otherwise, the wind will fill in the hole in the snow you’ve just dug out, and you’ll find you didn’t get a jump on anything but only created more work for yourself.
You’re not a union member, are you?
