Snow

Saturday morning a lot of people in Wisconsin woke up to white, a dusting of snow having dropped overnight. And for many residents it was the first time this season that things went white. The grass was gone.

I had to chuckle to myself while making my morning rounds on the web today viewing all the posts at Facebook and Twitter from people who took grainy photos of a dusting of snow in their backyards and rushed to post them. It's as if they feel we need a reminder of how the stuff looks.

I'm good, thanks. No need for proof that it snows in Wisconsin in December.


In my world we've escaped the stuff pretty deep into the month, and that just means we're that many days closer to spring without having to deal with snow.

Yup, I complain a lot about it...got no use for it. But I've always said at least I'm not fickle about it. It hate cold and snow. I love sun and hot. I'll give you $100.00 if you ever hear me complaining about it being too hot and humid in the summer. 

So I figure since I don't complain about the hot I get to complain twice as much about the cold and snow. And I do.

Snow at Christmas? Okay, I'll give you that much. But I'd still rather set myself down in a beach chair right here...

Later.
