sNOw Appreciation

Shoveling the driveway this morning I realized while I will never like snow, I don’t hate it as much as I use to.

That starling revelation came because of phone call with SOR (Son Of Ralph), who is in the snow removal business. A few weeks back we were talking and I said I didn’t care if it ever snowed. SOR replied, “Well you better hope it snows. Otherwise Desiree, the kids, and I will be living in your basement.”

Somehow, shoveling became a little easier.

Wow! Well, I appreciate the fact that SOR is looking forward to it, but as for me ---- No thanks! You are welcome to all that white stuff.

I'm all too familiar w/ the white stuff; powder or wet and heavy - even frozen. I engaged it regularly in Milwaukee and Chicago .... Nope, don't miss it here in the South one bit. I'm with you.

I don't know about that. Shoveling snow when it is wet and heavy is no picnic. I let that up to my husband who uses a snow blower on his tractor. Now THAT'S easy!

I know I haven't been floating around the Blogosphere for a while, but I sure was thinking of you when I heard that Colorado was getting pounded with snow. Guess you're used to it by now.

Well Ralph, I have almost forgotten what snow is all about. I left my snow shovels in Nebraska and in Colorado. We did come up to Nebraska a year ago and had some snow. It was pretty but sure was a mess.

Our next door neighbors are snowed in at Telluride. He has a ranch there and they stay there from May until Mid October. This year they stayed too long. If he can he will fly out Saturday. Can you make it stop? SOR has enough for this week.
Before I said all that, I wanted to say it might have been a good thing the Rockies didn't make the pennant. We'd have cancelled World Series Games or else they would borrow our Houston Astros field at our Minute Maid Park. We could open the roof if it got to hot for the Rockies.
