Fire Phil!

First off.  Might have been a joke before, but it really is time to fire Phil.

I am sure there are thousands of photos like this out there... but it really is a wet heavy snow.  What I am noticing anecdotally is that the electric lines are holding up a lot better than the cable and phone lines which almost all look to be under duress.  If you are crazy enough to be out there driving, realize that even if your original Hummer with chains can make it down the road, you still may be driving right into some drooping cable. 

and these are just some tall (or formerly tall) bushes behind my house which have completely surrendered to the snow thus far....

But it is pretty.  Where are the folks who were squawking about how our snow stories were all more Yinzer lore than reality.

If the roads remain this bad all day today (if it keeps snowing) then we will see plenty people who have been snarking about mobs at Giant Eagle in a very sticky situation indeed. Will have caught some with their pants down.

DPW can plow and salt their way out of most things. Rampant tree removal on top of all that? That takes a while.

We just cut and moved two trees that blocked our road. I think another one will go soon.

The people squawking about how Pittsburgh snowstorms are more Yinzer lore than reality are experiencing Yinzer lore as we speak.
