Snow Looming

Published by at 10:11 am under Personal

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard watch for this afternoon through Sunday. I can’t tell you how excited that makes me. Nothing better than being trapped in the house for the weekend. Not that I would really want to go any where with the crazed seasonal shoppingers running about, but it would be nice to know I could if I wanted too.

Last night we did our annual Christmas light viewing. Picking the night to do it this weekend was made easy do to the weather warning. Not to mention, I can’t tell you how happy I am to use $1.69 gas to make the cruise around town instead of the steep costs we’ve had to deal with in recent years.

We popped in the iPod, grabbed some frosty’s and spent about two hours roaming around town checking out the effort others (not us) put in.

I’ve never really been a big fan of winter. Some people love the opportunity to go skiing or snow mobiling or whatever it is that people do in the winter. Not so much me. I mean, I don’t mind taking the kids to the sledding hill and watching them having fun from the comfort of the warming house, but the amount of time I get to enjoy the weather is heavily outweighed by the amount of time it’s just too fucking cold.

This year has been unusual. It snowed early in the first week of November and has stuck around since. Once it hit Thanksgiving, I gave up hope of being rid of the white stuff until spring overtakes the scene.

On the bright side, the cold weather will just give me more motivation to stay inside and play some poker. I’ve been running well, so it won’t take much to motivate me and the more time I can put in, the better.

    oh! and don’t forget digging out your car in sub-zero temperatures after the nice snow plow guy buries it with all the stuff he scraped off the road.

    Also be glad you do not have a long double-wide driveway. There is so much snow on my boulevard that I am hereby issuing an avalanche warning to all walkers.
