Yesterday and Today

At noon on Tuesday I was on the golf course in a short shelve shirt swinging a golf club. The sky was a radiant blue, the sun was shining and there was a slight breeze from the south.

Then this morning I woke up to this.

On Wednesday at noon the only thing I was swinging had a blue handle.
You may not know this but – I hate snow.

Looks like you could pretend that was a special golf club:)

Yeah Ralph, I know you hate snow, so when I saw the news I thought about you and wondered how much you all were getting. It's really beautiful though! I have a snow shovel and I'd help you if I were there, but by the time I could get there it'll probably be long gone.

Why don't you just learn to love it?

Because it is wet, heavy, and cold.

Groan. I dreamt about snow last night. We were talking about it at work. The white stuff lost its appeal to me long ago, too.

I have lived here on the SHore for so long that snow still amazes me. I am able to see the beauty in it, probably because it is rare here... or it USED to be rare. The last 2 years have brought us more snow than I have seen in the past 40 years all together! Well, maybe not quite, but it sure seems that way.
Most Eastern Shore storms are melted in a day or two. Maybe yours will be gone quickly, too!
We are just starting to harvest soy beans - not a good time to snow! I still have peppers and a few zucchini struggling along, and a few tomato plants.

Ralph, you would make us good neighbors. The house across the street is for sale and also on the golf course. We get a LITTLE snow here about once every ten years.

You wouldn't have to hate snow anymore, just enjoy it on a ski trip.
Oh yes, you would get along good with our next door neighbor. For summer he has a small ranch, 400 acres, near Telluride. He also has one here for his horses, less than 20 acres.

That's funny, you hate snow? That would be like me hating rain. Surely you must be confused and you just hate shoveling snow, like I hate shoveling rain.
