“This is something that I haven’t seen and, I mean, it looks like a war zone up here.” Our governor, Joe Manchin, on the snow in Marion County just north of here.

1) Has the Governor ever been in a war zone?
2) Are there bodies strewn about?

Seems to me that describing Haiti as “like a war zone” might be justified, Marion County under 18 inches of snow is not. There were some power outages, but fewer than there were in the storm before Christmas, and most of them were fixed in a few hours, not days.

For those of you who might be concerned, no deaths or as far as I know, injuries, have been reported, and Robert made a run for Chinese takeout last night with ease, although he said it was getting icy.
