The Snow That Ate Manhattan (and most of the Eastern seaboard)

I'm coming at you live from New York City, where I was lucky enough to land a job interview this week, so I can't complain too much. Nonetheless, the storm that blanketed most of the East with lots of fluffy white cold stuff has grounded every flight out of the city, and it looks like I won't be getting home until maybe Christmas Eve (or the 13th day of Hannukkah, equal rep!). My new plan: befriend the creepy pigeon lady in Central Park and start setting elaborate traps for Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci.

Judging from Youface, a lot of you guys are in the same boat. But if we can't be with our families today, at least we can be with our surrogate family of people named Anonymous who hate us! So if you're stuck in some crappy airport or even just bored with your relatives, sound off below.

Merry Christmas, you filthy animal.

Jobless 2L,

Is your only dream in life to work in BigLaw?

There are other jobs out there.

I feel your pain, Jobless. I have been pretty cynical about the job situation all semester, and even I still don't know if the interview I just had will work out. But I was surprised to find out how impressed people were just by the Boalt name and some of the opportunities I've taken advantage of there. You might not find your ideal job right away--and the search is definitely going to be harder than you thought--but something will come along that you will be at least ok with. That's my message of hope wrapped in depressingly managed expectations.

Good news! I made it to Vegas, which isn't home, but it is along the route from SLC to San Diego that my family is driving today for the Poinsettia Bowl (go UTES). That's closer to home than a lot of people have made it this week. The plane ticket cost me $650, but it was a First Class seat, so that was kind of cool.

Anyway, hope the rest of you castaways make it out soon.

Manhattan slip and fall attorneys urge pedestrians to take extra care to watch where they walk, mind how they walk, and wear the right footwear. Snow and ice can hide, or even make it impossible to see broken sidewalks, holes, obstacles, or other dangers which can cause serious injuries.
