(not sure if this has been shared on the forums yet...)
It was a wild weekend here in DC. The federal govt is closed today. I stumbled upon these two articles today. Interesting to see how people react and what people do.
I did notice this weekend, how people totally disregard safety and rules when "it snows." Some kind of chaos mentality. Pedestrians crossing streets when its not their light against opposing traffic almost getting hit. Cars not paying attention to red lights, courtesy, stopping etc, "just because it's snowing."
You got these people up in NYC.

And these people down in DC.

Some people have fun... other people totally crossed the line of having their fun at the expense of others. (However, I do disagree with what that detective did in DC.) You should hear the one line though, "it's snowing outside... it's the same thing!"
