Construction barrels burried underneath a lot of snow, photos from flickr.
So after signing a new lease, breaking up with my gf and ordering a new MacBook Pro I thought that my week contained enough excitement but I was completely wrong. Apparently we were destined for a lot of snow and so I had to pull it together.
As the first flurries were falling I was scrambling to get the bare necessities moved into my apartment (desk, chair, futon and kitchen stuff) while also getting a stash of anime from Video American and food stocks from the store.
Moved in, stocked up, cable and internetless, I spent the weekend holed up in my third floor apartment watching the craziness unfold from my window.
The first thing I noticed is that despite large amounts of snowfall, the gay bar across the street didn't bother with closing, they kept at it. Troopers they are.
Second, the people that leave their houses during a blizzard tend to be in good spirits and rather jovial about the whole affair, I thought it was awesome.
Third, if you take photos of cop cars, they will come out and interrogate you. Thanks Osama Bin Asswipe.
All in all, a great weekend to break in a new apartment.
