What's A "Snow Day?"

Eric posted some nice pictures of Denver. To which I replied "I've always heard it's a wonderful place, but I'm allergic to snow and Republicans."

Well, I sit corrected because he replied, "you’re behind the times, WP. Denver is extremely blue. I live in Pat Schroeder’s former district. We have a Dem governor and the legislature is controlled by the Dems. As to snow, this was an unusual winter. Typically we get only a few snows of 6 inches or less. I work 25 miles west and 3,000 vertical feet up and it’s a different story there."

Touché. The political climate has changed and I've been misinformed. Yet, I would also reply, Eric, in San Francisco? One, I repeat, one, snow day. I'm forty-one and we've had exactly one snow day. That climate won't change.

Mind you, none of us except for Robin Williams and the Gettys can afford to live here, but we ain't got no snow.

This also straightens out once and for all, an arguement that I have every year with my Republican brother-in-law. Hey Frank, the Raiders didn't play a home game in the snow, as you can plainly see that it snowed only on February 5th, 1976. Which would make it well after the regular and playoff football season for that year, as the Super Bowl X was played on January 18, 1976.

Point taken.

I'm allergic to Eathquakes.

But I do like SF very much. I even drove down Lombard Street once.

I love that the Raiders play in the city that has Mayor Moonbeam. How does Frank deal with that?

I would say that if we continue to have winters in Denver like this one I will not be happy.

Touché encore.

Here's the thing, dig this, Mayor Moonbeam is now our Attorney General. Not only that, he's the Democratic front runner for when Arnold's term is over.

Jerry Brown

Frank would laugh at it, he knows that it's California. Two out of four of my brother-in-laws are Republicans and they're great, aside from a tiny bit of rhetoric here and there. We tease each other, but we pretty much leave our politics at the door at family gatherings.

Too much. I love Jerry; didn't know he had moved back up to Sacramento.

I have to say, that Ahnold has been saying some things I like lately, like that the there isn't Republican air and Democratic air, and that we can address global warming without hurting the economy. What party is he in again?

Where's Jimi Hendrix, because he would tell you that six, indeed, is now nine. Jerry is gung ho on crime and after Ahnold tried to take away money from school childen, and challenged nurses to fights, he has learned to be a consensus builder.

Ahnold is still on my personal shit list for not giving back the money to the public schools that he "borrowed," to balance that year's budget and he still appoints too many Repubs for my taste, but other than that? He's been pretty good to California. Now, if only he would take some time to learn how to pronounce our state name...
