Well this has been some crazy ass winter! Earlier today I walked around town to 1)check on the Dojo and see if the walkway needed to be shoveled(which it did) and 2)went to my grocery store job to see if it was open(which it was). Along the way I ran into a karate buddy who was heading down with his daughter to shovel snow out of their bakery shop so they wouldn't be screwed tomorrow when it will hopefully stop snowing. I think there was a total of 4 people working at the grocery store today and only one person was on cashier. I debated coming in for work but figured I can just sit around and do nothing all day. After getting back home with the groceries I thought it would be a good idea to kill two birds with one stone and help the karate buddy shovel and then goto the gym to shovel the walkway.
I didn't realize how much snow was there til I tried to walk to the front door of the bakery shop! There was so much snow on the way up that it went paste my knees and I am 6ft4in! I went around the back and saw the karate buddy who was using come crazy contrapation much like the one that shows up in the trailer for the Black Christmas remake but never actually appears in the movie itself. I helped shovel the snow in the path of this piece of machinery and he blasted it out of the way. After that I got some coffee and apple crisp and headed down to the dojo.
It was so weird though. I had never seen the town this desolate before during the day. I walked past one other person on the way to the dojo. It seriously felt like a post-apocalyptic winter movie(heightened even more by the fact that I was brandishing the shovel as if it were a katana). I was half-expecting some snowbeast to pop out of the giant piles of snow. To be honest I kinda liked how calm and serene everything was despite how briskly cold it had become. Probably the closest I'll ever get to a "I Am Legend"-like world. I even made a vine showcasing how much snow there was which can be found here v.cdn.vine.co/r/videos/19BEC69… . I was going to do another one where I actually walked thigh-deep into a pile of snow but some people were heading towards me and where like "HEY YOU! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" so I ran.
I just hope to the sexy Goddess Athena that this Winter Anarchy doesn't continue into Katsucon time. WE DON'T NEED TO HAVE ANOTHER KATSUCON 2014! EVER! Hope everyone is enjoying the snow and don't fall in cause if you do they won't find you til Spring.
