When one becomes a Cincinnati Editorial Cartoonist™®, one is contractually obligated to do certain cartoons on a regular basis. Cartoons about the Bengals and Reds and their perpetual ride on the Struggle Bus. Cartoons about the seasonal crop of orange barrels on I-75. Cartoons about Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky and how THEY ARE NOTHING ALIKE STOP STAYING WE'RE THE SAME PLACE.
And, of course, cartoons about how we panic at every the very mention of an impending winter storm.
As Snowpocalypse 2018: Part I — The Freezening apparently bears down on us, and as good citizens of our region dash madly from Kroger to Kroger buying up all the bread and milk they can, I give to you this cartoon. I hope you'll enjoy it before you batten down the hatches, dig into your emergency reserves of wine and goetta, and spend hours figuring out what you're going to binge watch on Netflix.
