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

  • Sharkey

    Can a brotha get a snow job up in heyah?

  • yargisbargis

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

    This news just killed John Murtha.

  • SayItWithWookies

    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.

    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

    Okay, “water cocaine” made my day.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Hahaha! Bloggers don’t have homes.

  • bitchincamaro

    “snowthunderdome?”

    In NYC, that’s “snowmugging”.

  • yargisbargis

    [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

    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

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

  • ella

    Are we having fun yet?

  • RoscoePColtraine

    “…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

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

  • Ducksworthy

    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

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

  • bitchincamaro

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

  • Flanders

    60 degrees and partly cloudy in Seattle.

  • President Beeblebrox

    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

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

  • JMP

    [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

    [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

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

  • yargisbargis

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

  • coolcatdaddy

    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

    [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

    I see nothing wrong with 10 inches.

  • DangerousLiberal

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

  • Darkness

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

  • windupbird

    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

    It must be snowin’ all over the world.

    7-incher predicted for the Mojave!

    We were feelin’ left out of the fun.
