Good morning.

On the preparing for Operation Polar Vortex Round III 7:20AM into the City. The NFI is 1.

Evidently, there are some folks of Northern European extraction that do not follow the weather warnings or are completely unaffected by the useful predictions forthcoming from the National Weather Service.

There’s one fellow that looks a lot like Adam Baldwin from My Bodyguard (the bodyguard in question) sitting across from me one seat over. This young daredevil is in a T-shirt and hoodie and a windbreaker best used for beach bumming. Little does the realize that the snow expected is considerable and the temps are expected to drop well past the comfort of modern gangbanger chic.

Not for nothing, across the aisle from Vanilla Ice sits a fellow that reminds me of Ron Pearlman, but clean shaven. He also must have missed the memo regarding the impending Snomageddon Freeztacular, because he is wearing a fisherman’s style jacket, two-toned red and gray, with a hood, and a logo from some fashionable outdoor clothier company. No gloves. These two men are either genetically predisposed to repel frostbite or are preparing for some trial by ice ritual that their Norse forefathers have passed down over generations.

Also here are Ted Kennedy, Michael Ironside, Mean Joe Green, Jason Alexander and Sam Waterston. All are armed.

Happy Friday. Stay warm. Safe travels.
