It seems as if this guy is keeping his cool (get it? Snow is cool), but I would get extremely claustrophobic in such a situation! At least he gets a day off work, because there’s simply no way for him to leave the house, so as it turns out, there’s a glass half-full to every situation, no matter how bad it seems.
Can you imagine opening the door to step outside and get the newspaper in the morning, only to find out you can’t get out? At least the newspaper is the least of his concerns at the moment, as he doesn’t need the paper to tell him a snow blizzard is approaching.
