You hit on the key point. I just referenced this in the storm thread: with all the crazy snow maps tonight I’m afraid people are seeing 20-30” and losing perspective. If you get 6-10” that is a good hit. It was 80 degrees two weeks ago! Lol.

The problem is this, expectations have reached a fever pitch. The last NAM run with it's 20-30 inch totals in many areas in and surrounding NYC has now set the expectations to high. An area wide Mothrazilla (6-12 inches) will now be seen as a colossal failure.

It will be an interesting next two days. We are short staffed and still reeling from our loss of TheAresian but in Syos we trust. All Directors should be on white alert.

Doc visits his mom in Ft. Lee tomorrow. Everyone on staff should prepare for 24 hour shifts.

Director of the Treasury and Grand High Exalted Mystique Ruler CP, my stay at the Dutchess of Bergen County (Mom) , will be only for the day and evening on Tuesday.I am returning this evening and will be on duty here at the Sanitarium starting early Wednesday March 7 Anno Domani 2018 for the expected massive Mainland snowstorm.She realizes my duties at the Sanitarium at this juncture take precedent over her needs.Be advised coverage is needed only for today from 10 AM until 6 AM wednesday.Both scenarios have been planned for, a mega Mainland event of 20 plus inches or a more usual 6 to 12 tainted by mixing issues.

Words cannot describe how livid I am regarding the lack of snow in the snow hole where I am on the mainland.

That’s why the island is here Mikey. Saddle up to the bar and have a few drinks at the Coconut Lounge to take your mind off it. I got an inch on grass and cars and a little slush along the edges of the sidewalks today so I didn’t do much better if that makes you feel any better.

Mikey find a place a couple miles from the train station in central to northern Westchester. Preferably with some elevation, at least 400-500 feet. Your commute will be easy and your snowfall will increase at least 12-15 inches per year on average. Plus your rent will decrease substantially.

I forgot to add and I'm not trying to make you jump off a ledge or anything but I saw reports that Bellerose had 3 inches today, true?

I can confirm the Bellerose measurement. Mikey is under my care here on the island. Luckily for him I’m pulling double duty. First he was treated with my special Bulgarian “experimental” drug cocktail at the sanitarium. It has been rumored to erase ones memories. Afterwards I had him moved to the lounge where he is currently receiving a stress relieving massage from a few of Amugs, leftover snow women. He shall be fine. I’m also bringing in a real estate agent who specializes in western CT and Westchester/Putnam rental properties. Full service here 24/7 on OTI!

Had no clue.

Happy birthday indeed Director of Mental Health and acting Director of the Coconut Lounge.

It will be interesting to see if the former director of the Coconut lounge shows his face at tonight's celebration. Snowman gave OTI security the authority to shoot first and ask questions later if he does. Seems a little harsh to me considering what an exemplary citizen and director he was. But it's not my department so nothing I can do about it.

This is very much a "shoot first, ask questions later" kind of island so it's just the way it is. That said I think the Aresian can seek asylum in the OTI Papal Nuncio if he at any point fears for his safety so I'd say he should come back an enjoy the party.

Happy Birthday Director! If next week's storm is all rain, you will have a flood of visitors coming to drown their sorrows, especially those stuck in snow holes! Enjoy the Lounge for your birthday and enjoy the quiet before the invasion! drunken drunken

Gentlemen, I propose a toast.

To the esteemed Director of Mental Health and acting Director of the Coconut Lounge. A most excellent sort whose skill with medicines here on the island is matched only by his mainland artistry and his ability to avoid Farmer Jones. Many mappy....umm happy returns.

In addition to the Birthday Celebration of my indispensible Assistant Director of the OTI Sanitarium, where he had performed miracles healing those poor individuals suffering from snow deprivation syndrome with his unique therapies, the return of our Director of the Coconut Lounge ,Aresian, is the best news I have seen on OTI this week.Also a visit by an esteemed Mainland Official, the Dutchess of Trained Spottery Janet aka Dunzoo, is an event to be memorialized! We of OTI humbly and graciously welcome you to the Coconut Lounge where the only rain that falls is water in a bourbon or scotch glass! Happy Days are INDEED here again!!!!

Hey Doc good to have you back from your fact finding mission.

Just to brink you up to date, a lot of OTI business was carried out on the banter thread today. So you don't have to go through several pages of dialogue I am nominating Mikey the landscaper for citizenship as soon as you can get Parliament together for a vote. If he does get citizenship we will fast track him for the position of Director of Landscaping. The Island is looking a little shoddy in spots. He certainly seems to have the moral fiber, very little, to fit in perfectly here. I have already warned him about wishing for early springs as that would most certainly kill his chances at citizenship and certainly for a Directors post.

I leave the rest of  the process in you more than capable hands.

My OTI brethren! Thank you all for your kind wishes. Tonight’s celebration has been epic. Way too much bourbon. However the female patients at the sanitarium insisted on celebrating with me. At about 5:30 I liost my senses and as I faded away I thought I saw the Aresian smiling in the corner. Later I came to to the sound of a riding mower and my patients were mumbling something about a landscaper and me being in some tv show with a philippino midget. Too much alcohol

I have been advised by CP to investigate the Weather Banter section of the Mainland Board for more information on the busy happenings of OTI these past few days when I was attending to the Dutchess of Fort Lee, my Mom, on the Mainland's needs.

I return to the mainland now. I thank you all for your most excellent hospitality and it reminded me of better, moral free days. As a gift for the the birthday boy, I ordered him 2 white tuxedos and a Filipino midget. Turns out you really can get everything on Amazon.

P.S. If Syo doesn't want the midget, perhaps he could give it to Mikey who could then mount it on a riding mower like one of those little hula dancers.

Geez Doc I hope our resident phenologist appreciates how quickly you acted on this.

From citizen to Director of Landscaping all in one bill. I thought we brought TheAresian along quickly with his one week rise from citizen to head bouncer to Director of the Coconut Lounge, but this has the Parliaments head spinning. Hopefully Mikey P's quick rise through the ranks doesn't see the same crash that befell TheAresian.

It was good to see him last night but lucky for him that snowman was asleep at the switch. He lives to see another day, The man seems to have nine lives, hopefully several are left.
