  • awesome!

    Also — can you believe Home Depot has run out of ice melt!?

    • The smaller places likely have it. I got mine from Logan on 14th, ace on 17th said they had more coming in last Friday. Home depot stops in March as they have to use the space for gardening stuff.

    • The Ace on 5th next to Busboys and Poets was out, promising to get some within a couple of hours (that was yesterday at 4p), and they were selling kitty litter and sand instead. But the Safeway (Giant?) next door had lots and lots of salt.

  • wtf? can somebody strangle that stupid groundhog who gave us all this extra winter and snow? jeesh…

    • This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather.

      Also, don’t drive angry.

  • This would not be a good time to tell the POPulace that I’m in California for the week for work, right? (-ducks-)

  • My 7:30 AM flight tomorrow to Boston was just cancelled.
