When I walked to work this morning, Seattle was eerily quiet. The snow has taken its toll. Not one street has seen the touch of a plow. Not one hospital has been plowed out. QFCs around town are running dangerously low on Pillsbury cinnamon rolls.

And where is Mayor McGinn? Where is his much-vaunted emergency snow plan? I expect to see city employees taking to the streets armed with shovels and four-ounce paper cups of hot cocoa! Instead, we have been abandoned to the elements.

Special warning to Stranger readers: Do not try to heat your homes with gas grills. Do not eat the weaker members of your family. Help is on the way. With God as my witness, if the mayor has let you down, I will come dig you out myself. We cannot let the snow beat us. Stay strong. Stay beautiful. We will get through this together.
