The Real Snow Problem

Even when they're plowing it, it's all wrong

    High noon at 11th and K Streets NW in DC on Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2010.

    With every forecast
    we are a' cringing
    hoping there won't be any more blizzardin'.

    If we lived in Buffalo
    it might not be so bad.
    We could be saying, this snow is the best we ever had.
    But with Fenty and Co. at the plow wheel,
    there's no way that sentiment would be real.

    Just look at this photo from 11th and K...
    why are they doing this in the middle of the day?

    Consecutive blizzards notwithstanding
    have our expectations become so low?
    or is the mayor merely putting on a dog-and-pony show?

    If re-election is his hope,
    Fenty better'd take the reign
    and find a way to cause us less pain.
