Many people still don’t have power, but the recovery from Hurricane Sandy is underway… except now here comes Winter Storm Athena. That’s just great.
As if it wasn’t already cold enough, now it’s snowing. Frankly, this is bullshit. People without heat and power were struggling enough, and now they get this? This is not cool. Well, I guess it’s cold, is what it is, but it sucks. Sucks ass.
(Yeah, I know the profanity level has been going up in recent weeks, but it’s stressful around here. It’s not an excuse, but it is the reason.)
What I’d really like to know is:
1. Why do we name storms after people? That seems like it’s just begging for trouble… like little Sandy getting the crap kicked out of her at school…
2. We’ve had two storms in the last two weeks – why name them both after women?
I don’t know the answer to these questions I’ve posed any more than I know the answers to why some people are still waiting on power and heat or how bad Athena will be.
Everybody stay safe, and if you see Mother Nature, give her the finger for me.
(Oh, is that why they name the storms after women? Mother Nature? What about Hurricane Floyd? Or "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair? Holy shit, my website is stupid.)
