This is pure snow! Do you have any idea what the street value of this city is?

Sharkey February 8, 2010 at 2:55 pm

Can a brotha get a snow job up in heyah?

yargisbargis February 8, 2010 at 2:55 pm

Sorry , this time WE’RE the snowpocalypse–or should I say snowthunderdome?

This news just killed John Murtha.

SayItWithWookies February 8, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Eh, you may as well enjoy it. A little south of DC we’re just going to get rain and sleety snow and then we’ll all have to drive to work in that crap on Wednesday morning. Staying home and drinking is a much better way of dealing with it.
Also, RIP John Murtha. And all the sanctimonious hypocritical Republicans who called this Marine a traitor and other horrible things can go f*ck themselves.

JMP February 8, 2010 at 2:59 pm

Hey, look on the bright side; with this one coming on a Tuesday/Wednesday instead of Saturday, it could mean most of us East Coasters could be getting a day or two off work. Except for the bloggers working out of their homes, anyway.

Judas Peckerwood February 8, 2010 at 3:03 pm

Okay, “water cocaine” made my day.

Naked Bunny with a Whip February 8, 2010 at 3:03 pm

Hahaha! Bloggers don’t have homes.

bitchincamaro February 8, 2010 at 3:03 pm

“snowthunderdome?”

In NYC, that’s “snowmugging”.

yargisbargis February 8, 2010 at 3:09 pm

[re=509411]bitchincamaro[/re]: “snowmugging”? nah, everything here’s been disneyfied or hollywoodized since Guiliani. With the sex shops off 8th Ave, it’s all been downhill.

Bearbloke February 8, 2010 at 3:11 pm

More better death for everyone?

I guess that includes Rep Jack Murtha, killed by snow today, perhaps as part of his personal exit plan – contact him at the office: http://www.murtha.house.gov/

You US American fuckers are stealing OUR Snow!

[re=509404]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Col. Danny Bopp and that harpy from Cincy, Rep. Jean Schmidt can get fooked.

Amen

Resquiat in Pace, Senator Essential Air Service…

I-man February 8, 2010 at 3:12 pm

I laughed at a measly 10 inches of more–*looks at blistered palm*–snow?
Oh God, why me!

ella February 8, 2010 at 3:13 pm

Are we having fun yet?

RoscoePColtraine February 8, 2010 at 3:15 pm

“…potential for 8 or more inches…”

Don’t just take the guy’s word for it, trust me. You have to literally see it for yourself. 8 means 6.5 if you’re lucky. Meteorologists lie about this all the time.

Extemporanus February 8, 2010 at 3:23 pm

[re=509424]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: SNOTIP: Use a child-sized shovel to make it appear as if you have more inches.

Ducksworthy February 8, 2010 at 3:25 pm

I hope Pat Roberston announces that this is gods punishment to DC for failing to pass health reform. But what he is likely to announce is that this gods punishment to DC for even briefly talking about it.

Jim: …finally kill off the neighbor’s magnolia tree that has been destroying your editor’s house for the past two days.
So are branches falling on your place or what? Your house? not some apt?

donner_froh February 8, 2010 at 3:27 pm

[re=509418]ManchuCandidate[/re]: You can have every flake.
Please?

bitchincamaro February 8, 2010 at 3:31 pm

[re=509416]yargisbargis[/re]: Come to my part of Queens, we’ll throw you a mugging you’ll not soon forget.

Flanders February 8, 2010 at 3:32 pm

60 degrees and partly cloudy in Seattle.

President Beeblebrox February 8, 2010 at 3:38 pm

The first day or so of forecasts about this weekend’s Snowmageddon predicted 8 to 10 inches. We ended up getting 2 feet. So at this rate we should be right on tap for another 2 feet, ftw.

Jim89048 February 8, 2010 at 3:39 pm

Just be thankful all these snow blastocysts don’t go full-term.

JMP February 8, 2010 at 3:43 pm

[re=509443]Ducksworthy[/re]: Last fall Washington city government legalized same-sex marriage; this winter has had & will have several unusually heavy snowstorms hit the city. Coincidence? Of course, but not according to Pat Robertson.

EggplantParm February 8, 2010 at 3:50 pm

[re=509394]hedgehog[/re]: Washington is a bodaciously small town. A fly speck on the map – a rest stop on the way to the ski slope. I can’t even get real drugs here!

magic titty February 8, 2010 at 4:28 pm

I thought Jim Newell was the only thing on Wonkett bigger than nine inches.

yargisbargis February 8, 2010 at 5:08 pm

[re=509458]bitchincamaro[/re]: fuhgeddaboutit!

coolcatdaddy February 8, 2010 at 6:09 pm

Could we perhaps get those welfare queens sitting in Congress that aren’t doing anything else to do some public works projects and shovel some of this stuff?

gertrudis February 8, 2010 at 6:19 pm

[re=509439]Extemporanus[/re]: I thought you were giving advice to re=509421]I-man[/re].
Didn’t Jason Stackhouse get a bad blister that way?

Diana Davies February 8, 2010 at 7:16 pm

I see nothing wrong with 10 inches.

DangerousLiberal February 8, 2010 at 7:23 pm

[re=509410]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: They have basements. With Cheetos, and steal their neighbors’ wifi, also too.

Darkness February 8, 2010 at 9:59 pm

[re=509478]JMP[/re]: Hey, snow is god’s way of getting the heteros to breed. This is true.

windupbird February 9, 2010 at 2:40 am

We’re supposed to get 7 inches in Boston. About 10 years ago, there was a weather guy in Boston who was arrested for selling Oxycontin outside of a Jimmy Buffett concert.

desertwind February 9, 2010 at 3:11 am

It must be snowin’ all over the world.

7-incher predicted for the Mojave!

We were feelin’ left out of the fun.

morecowbell February 9, 2010 at 6:31 am

[re=509418]ManchuCandidate[/re]: You’re complaining?
