Thanks for the concern, dood, but we seem to be doing ok here. A bit slushy and windy but nothing too out of the ordinary for early March. Maybe it’s worse as you head toward the coast? Sounds like John, Steve, and Mamuang are getting hit a bit harder than we are. Or maybe it just hasn’t hit here quite yet?
Kind of happy that I got the city to come out and prune the old street trees in front of our house last fall, though. They could have lost some big branches in a storm like this. (Our fruit trees are very young and pretty sheltered, so I’m not too worried about them at this point.)
Hope everybody else is doing ok out there.
PS: Riley is an incredibly lame storm name. In my personal opinion, the people who name storms need to throw out the “Most Popular Baby Names of 2007” book and start talking with the people who come up with names for professional wrestlers or something. Maybe get lucha libre masks for the Weather Channel announcers?
PPS: Just to clarify, Riley is a perfectly fine name (I have a cousin named Riley, as it happens). Just not for a storm. Also, thanks to @JustAnne4 for that info about the naming protocol and about the situation in DC (see below). Hope everyone down that way is doing ok!
