We have snow


It was raining when I woke up this morning. The rain was mixed with weak snowflakes after my shower. When I went to get in the car the air was filled with big, fat, wet snow. It diminished a little as I drove the 20 (or so) miles to work, but now it’s back. I know you folks up north must think I’m a nut for loving this, but it’s our first real snow of the year. We had an ice storm a few weeks ago, but those aren’t any fun. This is real snow. It’s even beginning to stick to the streets. If I didn’t have so much to do at work today I’d go home and make snowmen with the little kids and be waiting with snowballs when the older ones get out of school.

But, alas, there is work to do.

There were some interesting responses to last night’s post. Nick T., I wrote a long response to you, but I didn’t like the tone, so I deleted it. You made some good points, though.

A very good friend is trying to give up smoking. She’s struggling with it and needs encouragement. She’s chronicling her battle in a blog and is being very open. Smoking for her is even worse than smoking for most people. She really has to quit. So please, go drop a few words of encouragement.

  1. I had written a long reply and deleted it, about halfway through I deleted it when I realized I didn’t want to think about it anymore. I’m in sort of a transitional phase of my life and am trying to stay away from things that cause me consternation. Anyway, that’s off topic.
    The one thing that I will say is that I disagreed with the reply stating that Shocklines isn’t a place for your comment about the PBS show in question. Shocklines is one of the last bastions of intelligent, creative people with varied and well rounded opinions that’s why I love it.
