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.
Fun fact: I like to run on a daily basis. Sometimes barefoot but in winter, I wear shoes. And when it’s icy, I slip. I’ve already sprained an ankle once, and believe me, it hurts. My point is that I hate ice. Snow I’m totally fine with. It’s fluffy. It looks nice. Ice can go take a hike.
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.
It’s starting to feel like Christmas…or at least pain. I mean, it’s hailing where I live. That’s sort of like snow…right?
Personally, I could care less about the hail falling on me when I’m outside — it’s the shoveling it that’s gonna suck. And driving in it. Well, at least the hail’s not heavy enough to break any windows.
