Submit to the snow, which rewards indolence and punishes the go-getters

I can’t argue with that. Well, in Buffalo, where this picture (above) was taken, one might have to do something. But the point is, it will take time. Do it over a few days, and accept that for a couple of days  you’re going to be socked in.

 

About a1skeptic

A disturbed citizen and skeptic. I should stop reading the newspaper. Or watching TV. I should turn off NPR and disconnect from the Internet. We’d all be better off.
