Its The Only Thing I Can Do

It’s 19 Degrees Outside

It’s Pitch Dark

A Major Snowstorm Is About To Start



There’s only one thing I can do.

Mix up a double Manhattan, and fire up the grill.

Ok, we had to shovel off the patio, and break about 5” of ice off the grill cover first. But she’s heatin up now, and I’ve got a nice thick sirloin oiled up and warming on the counter.

We did loads of shopping and getting ready. I even went to the library and got a couple of classics out to read. So if the storm whacks us arse over teakettle for half a week or so, it won’t matter. Heck, I even found raw shaved coconut so I can make spicy marinated coconut shrimp. Good. To. Go.

As much as 14 inches of snow could hit New York City and the surrounding area tonight, as the storm that has gridlocked the Southeast comes north.

AccuWeather Meteorologist Tom Kines says the snow will begin to fall around midnight and last through most of Thursday. The latest National Weather Service forecast map shows that the city will likely get between 10 and 14 inches, depending on whether precipitation changes over to rain during the day.

People in New Jersey and Long island will be much luckier, Kines said. He expects they’ll receive just a few inches.

“The commute [Thursday] is going to be slow. Well, it’s always slow, but it will be slower,” he said.

Kines also warns that winds will be heavy Thursday — with gusts approaching 40 mph — so people can expect a lot of snowdrifting.

The storm has brought more devastation to the South. States including Tennessee, the Carolinas, Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia have received sleet and freezing rain, which has kept everyone off the roads.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie closed state offices Thursday, in advance of Winter Storm Pax, which is expected to dump 6 to 10 inches of snow and sleet on the region Wednesday night into Thursday. Accumulation of up to 14 inches is possible in some areas.

“[Thursday] does not look like a good day in New Jersey,” Christie said in a statement. “We want to keep people off the roads and safe.”

Dozens of schools have already cancelled classes Thursday, with more closings expected.

It started snowing just a short while after I got the cover back on the grill. I am really getting tired of this nonsense, let me tell you. Unless you’re dying of thirst out in California, this has been one major suck winter just about everywhere. Damn that Man Made Climate Change!!

The steak was great though. A nice micro-marbled slab o’ beef, dusted with Greek Seasoning and Adobo, then forked full of holes and wet down with olive oil. Seared up crispy and brown outside, medium rare and super juicy inside, yum. And I captured half a cup of juices off the cutting board, so there will be proper one pan Yorkshire pudding tomorrow.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
