Why doesnt Daley show up to admit he;s clueless when it comes to managing a storm. Good thing he;s retiring or his ass would be thrown out! What an idiot.

You know come to think of it I did hear a rumor that Mother Nature was seen hangin out with Puxatawnee Phil,you know ,the groundhog guy and they were yuckin it up about how they'd dump this enormous winter storm on Romeoville. My source tells me they met right on the front lawn of Village Hall!

The good news is Phil says spring is coming soon

First let me compliment you on choosing so fitting a name!
Next ,just how does one "Manage a storm"?
I mean should there be guys out there with flashlights pointing where the blizzard should park and for how many hours?
Does one place advance orders for wind speed and snowfall amounts?
Is there a set quota one must meet for idiots who don't heed warnings?
Perhaps I mistakenly thought one was pretty much at the mercy of Mother Nature and she will have her way regardless of your plan.
I'd bet that advance planning is at best done on a worst case scenario and sometimes Mother Nature kicks it up a notch just for giggles. She did,some of us except that fact and know how to get over it,Others...well..they are you!

Well said. 11:30 here, still not plowed and don't care. They will get to me when they can. I live on a court and I know I am the least of their problems.
