Blizzard Happens, Only Women Show Up for Work in U.S. Senate

Did you know that on the 26th of January, 2016, the U.S. Senate actually worked for a day?

That's because zero men showed up for their jobs as national senators because there was a lot of snow and snow is hard :( :(. So, literally, for that day, only women ran the Senate. Clearly there's a silver lining in this whole climate change thing.

“As we convene this morning, you look around the chamber, the presiding officer is female. All of our parliamentarians are female. Our floor managers are female. All of our pages are female,” Murkowski said in her remarks on the chamber floor.
“This was not orchestrated in any way shape or form, we came in and looked around and noticed that … something is genuinely different, and something is genuinely fabulous,” she said. “Perhaps it speaks to the hardiness of women. That put on your boots and put your hat on and get out and slog through the mess that’s out there.”

More blizzards, please. They keep the men out.
