It’s Still Cold and Icy Outside. The roads are not great. Oh, and it’s supposed to snow again on Friday.

Guess Who Has a Crush on a Certain Former President. Snooki. Yes, the Jersey Shore “star.” I’ve never seen an episode. I only barely recognize her name. But I’m pretty sure if you’re George Bush, you’re feeling pretty good today. Or not. Either way.

City Council Members Cost Us Tax Payers $28.33. That’s right. Four council members got rides to work and two even got rides from work on Wednesday. This, my dear, fellow tax payers, cost us $28.33. I’m enraged.

The Consequences of Power Outages. While the outages caused people to be cold and inconvenienced for a few minutes, it did a lot worse for the Williams’ family. Their 18-year-old daughter has cerebral palsy. She also has a breathing machine and a feeding machine. Fifteen minutes without electricity can literally mean life or death for her. And although the family has a doctor’s note on file saying electricity should not be interrupted, they’ve been told that there’s really no way to ensure that it won’t happen again. This is a concern as power outages are possible again this morning.
