snow problems

So the winter weather advisory is officially on for Cape Cod because of 2-4 inches of snow and winds up to 45 MPH? That’s child’s play, you know who needs an advisory? Mother Nature, that’s who. That bitch just threw everything she had at us and we didn’t even flinch, now we are supposed to be scared of 2-4 inches? Take a hike sweetheart, I ADVISE YOU to move your little storm out to sea and stop embarrassing yourself. Cape Cod knows how to handle snow.

P.S. Yes, I realize some people still can’t get down their street, we cancelled like a month of school, the Cape almost got cut in half, houses fell into the ocean and Nantucket pretty much sunk into the ocean because of the last storm, but people say I’m too negative so I’m just going to pretend that we won that one and that we’re going to win this one too.

Here’s A Recording Of This Morning’s Guest Spot On Stephanie And Steve On FRANK FM

By Hippie

30 Jan

Stephanie and Steve were nice enough to invite me on their morning show on Frank FM this morning. I may not recover from getting up at 7:45 AM for like 2 days, but it looks like we’ll be doing this every week. These are the types of sacrifices I am willing to make for the people of Cape Cod.

The Real Cape stuff starts at about 4:20 (of course) with Danchez and then my spot is at the 33:00 mark, but if you haven’t heard the show yet you should listen to the entire thing, and make sure to tune in to FRANK or listen online every morning for Stephanie and Steve.

Government Proposes A Plan To Allow Offshore Oil Drilling East Of Cape Cod

GLW – In 2014, over 3.2 million tourists visited the shores of Cape Cod. Tourism represents a whopping 43% of Cape Cod’s economic base.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Interior proposed a plan to allow offshore drilling on the Atlantic Ocean. The drilling in the Atlantic would be part of a five year drilling schedule that would begin in 2017.

Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey said, “Cape Cod beaches could be in the crosshairs of an oil spill that could devastate our shores if offshore drilling is allowed off the East Coast. Oil spills know no state boundaries. Cape Cod beaches are a destination for countless vacationers from Worcester and throughout Massachusetts, and we need to ensure we protect this unique natural resource and the tourism industry it supports from the devastation of a possible oil spill.”

Can you imagine what a BP level oil spill would do to Cape Cod? Our ecosystem is so fragile that we have to build Best Westerns for our Piping Plovers and charter flights to the Carolinas for our turtles. Because of that and a little thing called Nor’Easters I think I’m against this plan. Unless of course they can connect a pipeline directly from the rig into the oil tank in my basement. If that’s the case then I’ll change my middle name to Exxon first thing tomorrow.

P.S. Cape Wind loses it’s contracts from electric companies and this proposal happen within a few weeks of each other? Somebody just got PAID.

VIDEO: Christie The Horseshoe Crab Picks The Patriots To Win The Superbowl

APP – Christie, a long-time year resident at the Aquarium, has taken over the prognosticating duties from Luseal, a visually impaired harbor seal who has gone 1-for-4 in picking the winner over the last four years. Admittedly, she’s been working at a disadvantage.

CLICK HERE for the video

Well, I just bet the farm on the Pats and I suggest you follow suit. This wasn’t even close, Christie the horseshoe crab didn’t hesitate for a millisecond, she straight bee lined right to that Patriots helmet.

This is not to be taken lightly, do you have any idea how old horseshoe crabs are? I’m pretty sure they’ve been on earth for like 445 million years. Who the hell are we to question something that old? That’s like not listening to your mother when she says to bring a coat, old things know things, that’s just good science.

I don’t see any reason for them to even play the game at this point, 445 million years of wisdom just guaranteed victory for The Patriots.

P.S. How about them yanking Luseal the blind seal after a few losses? It’s not her fault, you are the idiots that put stock in what a blind seal has to say about the Superbowl when it’s obvious to anyone with a brain that the horseshoe crab right next to her is a certified football genius.

This Irish Pub Camper That’s Shipping To Boston Better Come To Cape Cod

Irish Examiner – From caravan to bar-avan — it’s the traditional Irish pub on wheels that’s about to storm America.

An enterprising cabinet maker in Galway has converted a battered old caravan into an authentic Irish pub.

And such has been the reaction to John Walsh’s Shebeen-for-hire, that he’s branching into sales and is about to deliver one to Boston.

“Very early into this project, we realised that The Shebeen was going to be something very special.

“We have already received an order to ship one of our designs to America,” he says. “It will be very similar to the original Shebeen, except it will have a thatched roof, meaning it will really encapsulate that feeling of Irish tradition.

Well I guess food trucks can take a hike. The future has arrived in the form of a bar on wheels. When they say shipped to Boston, they better mean that it’s the closest port on the way to Cape Cod and this caravan pub is headed here. Someone would make a fortune with this thing on the Cape. How amazing would it be if you could go get shitfaced at the pub… and they could drop you off at your house at the end of the night? Talk about a game changer.

They should equip that thing with a speaker, play the ice cream truck song and drive it through Cape Cod neighborhoods. Wives everywhere would go out to look for their husbands in the yard and find the lawnmower still running in the corner and hubby is gonzo. Nowadays guys are always getting sidetracked on the way to the grocery store and ending up at the bar, after this thing gets to town we’ll be getting sidetracked on the way to the shed and ending up at the bar.

P.S. I think I just became a Pikey.

Barnstable And Falmouth Schools Closed Again On Friday

By Hippie

29 Jan

snow day

Look I understand that some people need to go to work and don’t have child care set up for their kids. I realize some people want their kids back on a schedule. I understand that some people are upset because their kids will be in school until July. I even understand that some people just have assholes for kids and can’t stomach the thought of spending another day with them.

That said, try to think back to when you were a kid and imagine how freaking awesome this would be. Cape kids rarely get two snow days in a row, getting four must be like winning the lottery. This is a year that will go down in infamy, it will be talked about for the rest of their lives. They just got done with a long Christmas vacation, now this, and February vacation is right around the corner? This is an absolute once in a generation event for a child, you gotta be happy for them.

Unless of course you’re one of those unfortunate people that lost the lottery and your kids are pricks. In that case you should probably go get a Xanax prescription immediately and start Googling sleepover summer camps.

The D-Baggery Continues…

Come on guy face it’s been a few days now, it’s time to brush the two feet of snow off the roof and clear the rear window.

Apparently this dude was making a bee line for McDonald’s and stopped in the middle of the road to turn in, minus blinker, almost killing a few people, then when he saw that the drive thru wasn’t plowed he just kept going. That’s laziness on top of laziness on top of laziness. ‘Merica ladies and gentlemen!

P.S. When an internet blogger is calling you lazy it’s time to take a long, hard look in the mirror.
