On Snow Plows, Snow Piles, Snow Cones, Pleistocenes and Winter Scenes

Another round of snow overnight, falling at the rate of 2 inches per hour at one stretch, plows with their rhythmic beeps as soothing as nails scraping across a chalkboard cleared blacktop on major streets.  Snow piled up in the center of West Palisade Ave like a Mohawk Haircut, and perched on concrete flower pot tops like a snow cone, all 19 inches from yesterday making us almost immune to the next forecast.  The meteorologic stat-heads tell us it’s the highest January snowfall totals on record for this area.  The ruler agrees.  Feels like a throwback climate to the Pleistocene Period (I’ve only read about it).  Bring it on!  What the heck.  Another day of school closings and delayed Englewood Starbucks opening.  But Dunkin’ Donuts is the common woman winding her way along erratically shoveled sidewalks, opening her doors like clockwork at the regularly posted start time, hale and hearty.
