Sunday afternoon I went out to run a few errands, and was amazed by the lines at the gas stations, and the traffic jam in the local shopping center, where people were driving like maniacs to make the light and so they wouldn't have to let anyone else in front of them. Being clueless as to the weather prediction, I wondered, had there been another duct tape and plastic alert? Are we in another color code? What?
By the time36 hours and 2 feet of snow happened, I understood. That human instinct to get milk, movies and other survival requirements in case, who knows? The stores may never open again!!!! just takes over and people have to do what they have to do.
I have to admit I enjoy a good few feet of snow because the schools close and I don't have to work. It's wearing thin just now though because the snow's too deep to play in, my daughter's at home with friends running wild in the house, noisy with too much energy but no motivation to go out and try again to walk 2 steps without falling and becoming buried in the snow.
I'm trying to be patient, that's why I'm on the computer, to get some space from them, but who knows how long I can keep it up?
