Snow in the Catskills

You know it amazes me…it is snowing here..you know what that means?
You can’t get smart because schools and colleges are closed.
The elderly starve as there are no “Meals on Wheels”.
You can’t report abuse as the Child Abuse report center is closed.
You can’t be prosecuted because the courts are closed.
You can’t pay a fine because town offices are closed.
You can’t go to a detox center or go nuts, because Mental Health is closed.
Cancer patients suffer as the treatment centers are closed.
You might get pregnant because Planned Parenthood is closed.
Yet, the liquor stores are open so the local drunks can be on the road, they are the only people clueless enough to go out on a day like today.
They ask you do not travel and many roads are closed, yet the police zoom through for coffee at the convenience stores, when the plows have not yet dared!
We are told to prepare for power outages, cell phone outages, phone outages, but are told to call 911 in an emergency!
They have stopped all rural elderly transportation for the day so I guess anyone in these parts over 65 must walk in this white stuff!
They tell us not to shovel until this is over…we are due 21 inches today, and then they tell us not to hire anyone coming to look for work to clear it tomorrow!
They have closed everything here from medical facilities to funeral homes-just where do we go if we are very sick and there is no one to pick us up from the Coroners Office?
Last but not least, you can’t pray for help because religious instruction, churches, and temples have all close!
So I guess the world is on hold and we all play on the internet today!
That is until the satellites go down up in the mountains known as the Catskills!!
