HBO’s John Oliver explains how New Years Eve is like the death of a pet – you know it’s going to happen, but you’re never really prepared for how truly awful it is.
He suggests the best way to get out of celebrating the occasion with friends is to tell them you’re doing a “cleanse” (the discussion will usually stop right there).
From this item at the Weather Channel on the Top 100 Photos of the year comes the image below depicting how “lake effect snow” around Buffalo can make life interesting.
Of course, that first stop sign was probably pretty interesting too. More photos from the massive snowfall last month can be found here.
