Another Winter, Same Old Snow Facilitation

Hello, Yupette,

I foolishly drove to work today believing the forecast that Arlington would receive an inch or so of snow. So how does Arlington handle a 'surprise' snowstorm of 3-4 inches? Just s Arlington did last year, salt one lane and hope it stops snowing. If you live deep inside a residential neighborhood you are on your own once you are off the main street or road. Are we lucky we have gas guzzling SUVs? We are even more fortunate to have Barbara Donnellan back as County Manager, facilitating snowstorms.

The surprise storm was caused by hot air from the County Board Room meeting an Arctic air mass over Arlington County.

Takes over an hour for a taxi to show up after you call for one today. Time to get out your mountain bike and ride to and from work, like Jay Fisette. No green taxicabs for Jay. He wants to be a macho man and ride his bike 52 weeks a year. Are you a sissy? Why would anyone not want to ride a bicycle to and from work on an invigorating day like today?

Fisette commute by bicycle to work? What work? You mean what he does at the County Board? Raising our taxes and deciding what developers and special interests get so many millions in hand-outs?

Is this what we can expect from Barbara Donnellan again this Winter?

Yupette, did you see Zimmie resigned from WMATA Board, passing the baton to Mary Hynes because she can see Metro from her house?

See the Post today? WMATA is short of bus drivers. So if your late night Metrobus doesn't show up at the Pentagon don't call a cab. Just wait an hour or two for the next bus. So what if it's 9 degrees? Chairman Zimmerman wants you to be a Metrobus Super Rider.

Not surprising. WMATA is a loser and Zimmerman has been taking angry comments every County Board meeting about WMATA's failings.

Did you see Item 30 on last County Board meeting agenda? The Pike and Crystal City trolleys will ultimately cost $300 million together. Maybe Zimmerman figured that micro-managing that project would consume too much time.

Mary Hynes on the WMATA Board? Does it mean that WMATA will start running party trains to local sports events?

Another winter like last winter.

Thanks to the FBI persuading 19 year old Muslim Americans to engage in terrorism we will be searched upon entering Metro stations if we look 'suspicious'.

The Neocon wackos will tell you that if you look suspicious you should not be riding on Metro. Also, that we should be in Afghanistan for the next 27 years, or until Bin Laden dies of natural causes at his rancho deluxe on the A-P border, in 37 years.

Tell Barbara Donnellan that her facilitation of snowstorms sucks - 703-228-3120.

I'm outta here in February. Even at $125 a day a hotel room in Florida beats being housebound here.

Zimmerman dropped out of WMATA so he could concentrate on making Arlington Metropolis on the Potomac.
