Live From NY, It’s Saturday Night Snow!

With luck, it might even snow for us. ~Haruki Murakami

If I get hungry enough I'll have to eat one of them

P&Q’s first road trip to points north has proven a very weird one. First there were all the strange customs of this weird alien planet known as New Jersey we’ve crash-landed upon (full-service gas stations? WTF?) and the cancellation of the guests I’d come to see in the first place. Now, as I look out my hotel room window, I’m in the middle of the most freakish October snowstorm in nearly a century. You know, the one the Weather Channel is probably running on a 24/7 loop? Yep, that’s it. I’m right in the middle of the whole thing.

Yesterday it was a lovely late autumn with color galore and temps in the mid-50s; today it looks like I should be breaking out my copy of “Winter Wonderland.” I never understood weather and I don’t suppose anyone else does either. However, thanks to the good people at the local Chinese food place, everything is still good. I’m not gonna be forced to hunt for elk any time soon.

There are several positive things I can gain from this whole experience. I’m not at work and don’t have to be back at work until nearly noon on Halloween. I’m in the company of one of the best friends anyone could have. I have an entire uninterrupted day to write and relax. There’s a gorgeous view from my room (see below for what I’m talking about) and for once, I don’t have a room overlooking an alley or a dumpster. I’ve got plenty of food, internet access, a warm set of clothes. Oh, and the airline agreed to change my flight for no cost to me because of Mother Nature’s interference.

I just gotta ask: does a vacation get any better than that? I don’t think so. Weather Channel, you’ve got it all wrong.

These last few posts at the end of October will mark a hiatus of sorts for P&Q as I’m going into NaNoWriMo next month. I will stop in every few days with an update.
