Called the Sheriff's office this morning. The lady who answered sounded like she was going to lose it when I asked if they had any idea when we here might expect some snow removal. Apparently the calls demanding help have been off the charts. She sounded almost grateful when I reassured her that I was all set to wait things out but was only calling out of curiosity. "I'm supplied and quite comfortable here," I told her. Sounds like I'm one of the relative few out of the non-stop callers that that office has been getting. Many people are demanding immediate rescue and/or complaining that they don't have food. Seriously, people? We all saw this storm coming a week out. How could any of you not have taken basic steps to ensure that you could get through this?
Oh yeah...Our local Dem voters. I forgot about the ones who always think that the government is going to take care of them. Surprise, fools. Obama ain't coming and even the state and county folks are hindered by the snow and backlogged by priority rescues. Sheriff's phone lady told me to hope for the promised warmer weather later this week but in any case it is likely to be a few days before they get up to us folks on the mountain.
Glad I got books and booze.
Some folks are getting impatient though.
