At the grocery store yesterday, I overheard so many people loudly exclaiming, “They would love for it to snow” Then continuing on with their seasonally induced amnesia. “It would be so festive, ‘especially’ for the holidays.”
I still have nightmares over last years snow fall.
In December it showed almost every other day. At one point, the snow came down so fast and heavy my snow thrower broke. I didn’t panic…I walked right in the house peeled off layers clothes and called the repairman. I was told that I would need a specific part they didn’t have, and even if I got it, the repair guy couldn’t come out until the middle of January …maybe.
I didn’t panic. Instead I pulled out a rope with red flags and roped off the driveway.
Five feet of packed snow that was so solid I could stand on it, with three other people and not sink. Nope, sorry I am not looking forward to snow. If Mother Nature could please hold off until January, I would be grateful.
It might be too late, but I need to knock on wood fast!
My mail box was hit twice last year. The temporary mailbox, set in a bucket of cement, was also hit-twice. The second time it exploded.
Don’t get me wrong, I love snow.
But, … last years snows were a little over the top.
If you add in my dog Zeus, ten and half, sweet heart of a dog, was hit by a car during a snow storm. An eighty pound black dog, in a white snow storm…
Please drive carefully this holiday season.
