Megan's all whiny cause she is too stupid to plan ahead. Naturally this means that the government is at fault.
You have never seen a city as completely incompetent at dealing with snow as Washington DC.I'm gonna go ahead and guess that if DC kept the huge fleet of plows handy that would be needed to promptly take care of two feet of snow, Megan would call them wasteful for spending millions on something that is only needed once every 50 years.
I mean, two feet of snow is inconvenient anywhere. But in DC, only the main streets have been plowed.
UPDATE: I should have kept reading because we also have this beautifully thought out idea:
Here's a serious question: why don't more cities rent out their snow services? Upstate New York is apparently blissfully free of snow, and short of money. Washington DC is one of the flushest metro areas in the country, and in need of snow removal. Why not get some of the snow removal equipment--and talent--from Rochester and Syracuse and Buffalo on the road? They could be here in twelve hours at the outside, and have this place cleaned up in a jiffy.I just checked the forecast for Syracuse which will be "blissfully free of snow" for about 6 more hours. Then it will snow for a week. So, yeah, why not send all of your snowplows (which are only used for snow removal and recreational games of dump truck polo) and your personnel (which are apparently a group of volunteer snow fighters sitting around the snow house all day, waiting for a snow alarm to go off who don't need sleep)? That sounds like a fucking brilliant idea, Megan. So much better than making you walk a few blocks in the fucking snow because you're too stupid to plan ahead.
It seems like this would be a win-win combination. But as far as I know, no one's even suggested it.
