It snowed yesterday. Quite a bit, actually. It melted pretty quick too, and it didn’t stick to the streets. Normally I wouldn’t care much either way, but I’ve recently learned that snow at this time of year will hurt all the fruits that have just started growing. In short, a bad thing.
Let’s hope the snow hasn’t done too much damage to the fruits around here, or at least that the farmers know how to protect their crops. My idea was a giant umbrella…which tells me that I’m never going to be a farmer. Best stick to drawing pictures.
I hear the snow was really bad somewhere where I wasn’t. Seriously, I heard it got to 28 inches or more in some places. That’s a lot of snow to fall in one area. Also, it’s Pirate’s turn to be irrational — I think Knight’s smart enough to stay away from any kind of blizzard.
Shoveling snow is hard work. Sometimes I wish I had one of those snow blowers, but why stop there? Flamethrowers, laser guns, bombs…I think I just want to get rid of the snow once and for all. You shovel it, and the next day it’s back. Annoying.
It means stay indoors, or at least wear a jacket Pirate!
I’m starting to hate snow, at least when it comes in large quantities. Winter Storm Warning is in effect for my area, but you still have to go to work. Regardless, lots of snow means lots of cold, and I’m just not feeling it at the moment. Not sure how Pirate is surviving. She’s just tough.
Are you tired of the snow yet? I enjoy it, but not all of the time. Speaking of which, I hate holding up my umbrella in the rain or snow. So why not put one on my head? World-changing inventions, here on Pirate Blog.
I’m sure if you asked Knight, she’d just claim she wanted to stand there for a while. She’s actually a nice person deep, deep inside. And while she’s awkward, I think the Christmas spirit I definitely don’t feel this year is embodied in small acts of kindness. Even when the world seems like it’s falling apart, small gestures matter.
What temperature do you set your thermostat at? Me, I set it just below 70 degrees Fahrenheit. I like the coldness, and it saves quite a bit on gas. But I have to admit, I’m thinking of turning up the heat with this snow.
Also, not sure I mentioned it, but I run barefoot. Not a good idea at the moment. Well, at least it looks like winter at last!
