So there’s been this big storm that you may or may not be aware of. Out here in Boston, it wasn’t actually too bad, except for the bucketing rain that turned the fresh snow into inches and inches of mucky sleet, and then the freezing of that sleet overnight. This morning, I myself ate it on some black ice trying to get to work. But at least I’m not this poor guy (shown here in midswoop):

I hope that the irony of that safety cone in the background isn’t lost, by the by.
