The two things I wonder most about winter are: Why do some people throw away their snow shovels every year and have to buy new ones? And why do these same people go to the supermarket when a snowstorm is forecast to buy bread and milk when they never eat and drink those things when it doesn't snow?
As a man who has been perpetrating snow jobs for more than half a century, I can say with authority that there is a simple reason why the Northeast has not yet been hit with a blizzard this winter: I had my snow blower tuned up.
The second half of this winter has been less snowy than the first half, but it's hard to forget various breaches of etiquette during the flake-filled time prior to early February. Yes, it was a case of "Residents Gone Bad."
As a man who has been perpetrating snow jobs all his life (55 years and counting) I can safely say that the recent blizzard dumped more of the white stuff on my driveway than anywhere else on the East Coast.
