Blizzard of 08!

I decide to make the roadie to Columbus, Ohio to catch the Columbus Blue Jackets host the Edmonton Oilers yesterday. (What? I can't drive eight hours to catch a hockey game? It's not like I >heart< hockey or anything. BTW, the Oilers won. After The Jackets tied the game at 1-1 with .8 seconds left in regulation - ghetto Oilers! - E-Town Strikers took the game in OT. Sorry C-Bus)

The plan was to leave this morning and head to Grove City, PA and get our shop on, but a little blizzard sweeping through mid-eastern US had different plans for us. The city and surrounding counties declared a Level 3 Snow Embergency - only emergency vehicles are allowed to be on the road. All other vehicles get tickets.

Over 20 inches of snow forced us to stay another day. There's no way RSXNation would be able to navigate through the streets. We saw SUVs and pick up trucks getting stuck!

The news said there was 2,000 accidents today. There was no way I'd risk being one of those! Stuck in a ditch on the side of an interstate highway for a few hours isn't a good look...

Now what to do while stuck in craptacular Columbus? Go outside exploring, of course! Damn, this place sucks. And the entire city is shut down. A whole bunch of stores are closed with no where to eat. The streets aren't even plowed yet. At least i have good ol' interweb!

first of all, the only time I want to hear you use the words "Blizzard" and "08" are when talking about Starcraft II. That's it! The rest of it is just snow.

second of all, you better be watching Raptors Sonics tomorrow (at the time of writing, it's technically today). It's ball above all, not the puck doesn't suck.

Thirdly ... I don't have a third point.
