So, somebody needs to get a message to Old Man Winter. He isn’t supposed to show up for another month.
Last night we got hammered. Hammered – in November.
It’s freaking November and schools are closed because of snow.
Sure, on occasion, we get November snow here in Central New York. But it’s usually a dusting that is gone by the next day.
And don’t give me that, “But Dianny! It’s sooooooo pretty!”
Sure it’s pretty … in January!
When I came downstairs this morning, I looked out the front window and saw at the end of my driveway, a car stuck in the snow in the middle of the street. It’s been there for hours. I guess the owner, flipped on the hazards and walked home. Clearly he’s from the “I just don’t want to deal with this right now” school of thought.
Ten minutes ago, a neighbor across the street pulled out of her driveway and proceeded to get stuck on the street as well. So when and if the plows do finally make it to my street, they won’t be able to plow it.
Excellent! (She said sarcastically as she bitterly thought of having to go outside and shovel)
These are scenes one ordinarily expects in January — not freaking November!!!
I know, quit your carping, Dianny!
But I hadn’t even finished mowing and clearing the leaves in my backyard. Now it looks like that will have to wait until Spring.
If we get a Spring. At this point, who knows?
If you’re going to get a snowstorm in the middle of November, who’s to say you’ll get Spring when April rolls around?
Okay. Now that I’ve vented, I will finish my coffee and go outside for the next hour or so to shovel.
