Now That’s a Winter Storm

Call me goofy, but a tiny part of me wants to see something like the 1948-1949 winter in my lifetime. I don’t really care to see the damage that would come with it so I suppose I ought to be very careful about what I wish for. Still, I’m fascinated by Mother Nature’s power, not to mention Her quirks. Maybe October 1997 was my shot. If so, I suppose that’s ok. I do have a couple good stories to tell about that one. Nothing like 1948/49’s 18-foot drifts, though.

Now this is what I’m talkin’ ‘bout!

It would be fun, but with the way the city’s handled the snow removal this year, we’d all be as doomed as doomed can be (channeling Ed Grimley).

Have to go to eastern Washington State for that kind of volume this year - collapsing buildings it seems.

I guess I always get concerned for the elderly and disabled in those kinds of storms. They’re usually screwed.
