I Want To Wash My Hands, My Face And Hair With Snow

I’m a firm believe that snow should be a target on the map. It should be someplace you go to on purpose (like that scene from the movie White Christmas when Bing and the gang are on the train).

Snow shouldn’t be something that just happens. This morning, I woke up to snow. In fact, we’re expecting an inch. I won’t be leaving the house. Okay, I know those in the North are probably rolling your eyes, but the high is only 28 today.

I see a lot of blogs today.

    My sentiments, exactly.
    When the first cold front hit, I told my boss that it should be in the policy manual that it is okay to call in “cold” and stay home. Snow, when I’m at work, gives me a headache. I just know that on the way home I’m going to get hit by someone skidding on it. Sleet is a whole different category of fear. If it starts sleeting, I am out of there. If administration doesn’t like (I work for OSU) it they can fuc*ing fire me.
    I think half of American will agree with you on this one. (The southern half)

    An inch you say? In these here parts (upper midwest), we speak of the stuff in terms of feet – but one thing is sure – it’s going to be a white Christmas. . . and then a white January, February, March . . . well, you get the idea: a white forever and then, with luck, the time will come to flee to the south and never see anything that is cold and white and driven.
    Happy Merry Everyone!
