Read nothing but bitching in one form or another yesterday. “We had tougher storms and still went to work/school/whatever.” Yes, we have and I think my point was be glad you didn’t have to be out yesterday. As I write this now, it is 16 degrees outside and not much warmer in my office, but watching the wind & snow have at it yesterday, I was glad the kids got the day off and didn’t have be chasing buses and their mom got the day too.
Yeah, sure we’ve battled bigger storms, but I’m glad we didn’t have toas by last night it was just cold. I still remember that if it wasn’t for a parent teacher conference my little brood would have stranding in at least three different locations during that freak storm of Thanksgiving Week in 2000. Last night, I had to pick up a daughter from a friends house, disturbing my car from the nice warm garage. It broke up a heavy day of reading, coffee drinking, laundry and way to much time on the internet, (but if you are a Star Trek fan, spending 8.00 for the Best of Trek volume one is a great purchase). Got a slight thrill driving my unspoiled car past snow mounds that had cars at their bottoms. It was real easy to find mine in the Wegmans parking lot when I made a quick stop on the way home.
I’ll leave you with this one thought: the person who invented the “necksock” for Columbia outerwear is a frickin genius and deserves a better cut of whatever royalties they are currently receiving.
