Michael Reuben is a native of New York City, but he left as soon as he could. Instead of reaching his goal, Alaska, his car broke down in Cheyenne, Wyoming and he stayed. Today is Halloween—it also happens to be Mike’s birthday.

“It’s the worst snowstorm this fall!” The radio announced gleefully, waking me up.

What it fails to mention is that it’s the only snowstorm of this fall. Like it’s some big thing, like we don’t know. We live in a city where it snows from October to April. For it to be the worst snowstorm, wouldn’t you expect for there to be something to compare it to? Maybe the guy meant to say, “It’s the first snowstorm this fall!” That would make some kind of sense.
