Or, I Am So Very Tired of the Massive Quantities of Snow That Have Been Dumped on Connecticut.

We've already gotten somewhere between 5 and 6 feet of snow this month - in an area that averages 2 feet per year between November and March. Something like 6 snow days already, and the western part of the state is even worse off. Some districts didn't even have school today.

And it gets worse. Way worse. There's another storm gearing up to hit us. Huge. It's got the potential to dump a foot of snow in a 2100-mile corridor from Maine to Ohio to Oklahoma.

We're supposed to get snow starting after midnight tonight, lasting until the afternoon. Then a few hours of respite. Then an ice storm.

The long and short of it: we're screwed.
