Breaking Thundersnowprisingpocalypsmageddon 2011 (TM) Update

As the snow continues to fall and traffic appears to be nonexistent and the lights flicker ever so faintly and we begin pondering "worst case" human cannibalism scenarios, we bring you this heartwarming story of perseverance and camaraderie in the face of adversity, courtesy of the Twitter machine:

That is all.


  1. Survivalist in an Architecturally Designed Brutalist StrongholdJanuary 26, 2011 at 7:30 PM

    I'm planning to head to North Point with all the other unwashed masses here in Lake Anne for some good old fashioned looting and perhaps we'll dabble in cannibalism as well. After having broken their will to survive by stealing all the booze from the ABC, then we'll all retreat back to our brutalist stronghold to withstand their tepid retaliation.

    Lake Anne Uber Alles!


  2. Being as I'm in Uplands, not Lake Anne, I'm not planning on any cannibalism or looting. (yet.) But we've had 7 1/2" in only 3 or 4 hours.

  3. Now's the time to strike --- the 'lectricity just went out!

    Now let me see how long my fancy-schmancy UPS lasts -- what with my PC, my modem and 50 other things plugged into it....

  4. I knew snow was coming when Whole Paycheck started to look like the Soviet Safeway.

    The only TP left was the recycled stuff that can't be sold legally as sandpaper. Even though that's what it really is.

    My parents invited me to visit them in Panama City -- temp there -- 84 (but 90 percent humidity). Fool I am for staying here!

  5. The bus STOPPED to let some guy take a pee and then they let him back on again?!? I don't see why this guy deserves special treatment. Heck, when people have to fart, they never ask the bus driver to stop and let them out. They just let fly without a word. And nobody ever complains about it either.

    The loser should have just wet his pants. Maybe next time he'll bring a Depends with him.

    It's all fun and games until the power goes out. Then it's hobo hunting time.

    Here's a link to find the powerless:

    Good luck.

  7. Interesting 'play-by-play' from FFX Conenctor last night and this morning:

    Lots of info!

  8. What is all this commuting (by bus no less)?

    Aren't you Restonians supposed to be working, living and playing in the same place?

  9. Ah, Anon... we are working (blogging), living (behind our glass walls) and playing (on our computers until the power left) in the same place! And thanks to the snowpocolypseageddon event that covered our mauve existence, we're in the same place for longer..Don't you love Reston!
