Snow: Nature’s down-twinkles

Font Size:

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the schadenfreude’s delightful…

Christmas has come early this year for anyone who enjoys a good laugh at the expense of Occupy Wall Street. CBS New York reports:

Saturday’s snow storm made life in Zuccotti Park miserable for Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Demonstrators were left drenched with rain and then snow as the storm moved through the region. Central Park set a record for both the date and the month of October with 2.9 inches of snow.

Those camping out in the park have been stockpiling donated blankets, scarves, coats and have been trying to get more tents, cots and tarps.

According to an “urgent” alert on their website, OWS is looking for a number of other donations, including waterproof boots, gloves, hats, hand and foot warmers and disposable foot covers among other things. The site says the protesters “are in need of emergency supplies crucial for cold weather survival (and occupation).”

Conspicuously absent from their list of necessities: a clue.

Will the chilly weather force the 99-percenters to find warmer places to defecate? Inside the cop cars, perhaps? Can their frostbitten hands still form fists with which to beat each other? It’ll be fun to find out!

P.S. More Occupy arrests, this time in Portland, OR and Austin, TX. Pretty sure that’s an Occupier merit badge right there.
