It is cold enough to die here in Minneapolis -- and now it's snowing. Again.

Don't get me wrong. I love fresh-fallen snow, but I got a snow emergency parking ticket yesterday and will have to walk in -15 degree temps (not an exaggeration, folks) because they're plowing our lot tomorrow and we're not allowed to park there.

Now we're getting 3-5 more inches? A whole new Winter Weather Advisory? Why me, O God?

"Commutes will likely be difficult." People drive like retards when it snows in this city, and the last snowfall still isn't off some roads. Can a sister get a break?

The National Weather Service is ruining my life.

isn't it funny how people who ought to be used to weather drive like fucking idiots when it happens? like, people in Memphis get rain ALL THE TIME and yet, a drop falls and it's like all hell has broken loose!

I can almost understand when it's hard to see the lanes on the highway because they're covered in snow... but the problem is when people just decide to make their own lanes while COMPLETELY DISREGARDING EVERYONE AROUND THEM.

It's just chaos. You will literally have sets of tire tracks in the snow, one person will be on one pair, the person behind them will be in between those and the next lane, and someone else will be making their own path.

I don't get it. Single file lines would make it a lot easier, and it's not like it'd be terribly difficult to guestimate and use depth perception to figure out a logical location for the lane and then STICK to it.
