Being a Connecticut blueblood, much like Hunter Hearst Helmsley, I haven’t experienced the reign of terror that mother earth is known for. One may mother’s earth is in a never ending state of terrorising… The worst I’ve ever experienced was about three maybe four years ago in October. It was the Saturday before Halloween, actually it was the same day as Cro Cop vs. Roy Nelson and Nick Diaz vs. BJ Penn. I was closing at work that day and it was also the start of my vacation once I got off work. I got a call from my mom about two hours before I was leaving about the power being out. I figured, oh whatever, it’ll be back by when I get home, the snow is thick but it’s just a little snow. I then leave work to go home, there is no power anywhere, not even the street lights, there are enormous trees laying in the street as well as power lines, I barely managed to get home.
For the entirety of my vacation I didn’t have power. The only thing I could do was play Pokemon Pinball on my Gameboy all day. It was the most mind-numbing thing ever. My entire vacation I was looking forward to, was ruined by the combination of thick snow and leaves still being on the tree. I also missed Diaz/BJ. It sucked and it was awful. Also Hurricanes are terrifying.
