Oh, the weather outside is frightful

let it snowIf I didn't have to go in to work today -- major project hitting a critical point -- I'd have slept in.

And I'd have missed the snow.

Okay, you folks from up north are saying, "That's not snow."

And, for your world, you'd be right.

Only, I don't live in your world. I live in the South.

It don't snow much where I come from.

I've been in the snow before. Real snow. Knee-deep snow in the mountains of Korea.

I've driven in snow, with chains on the tires.

I don't care for snow.

But the grandchildren are out in it, having a great time.

Grandchildren playing in the snow


  1. If we could just find a way to keep it from snowing on the roads, I could put up with watching them play in the snow every day.

  2. Oh, I've heard about the poverty of the Old South. Why, they're so poor that they think a frost is snow, and they send out their pitiful little urchins to make tiny frostmen and frost angels. Sweet little things don't knows any better, so they keeps their chins up. Inspiring, in a way.

    Can you tell I'm tired of winter?

  3. Heh. I'm tired of winter any time the temperature drops below 50.
