Usually that’s a metaphor for something or other, but in this case it just means the East Coast is gonna get hammered with anywhere from six to eighteen inches of snow, depending. My area’s supposed to get six to eight inches. …Which means precisely zero, unless the power and/or Internet goes out. My kids aren’t really thrilled about the end of snow days, and I can’t say that I blame for that, either.
Ach, well, the beer store’s within walking distance.
