Stupid snow! I know we are all sick to death of the S word by now, what a ridiculous winter it has been (and, really, what would we do if we weren't complaining about something, hmm?). I live in Maryland, we have relatively mild winters, nothing too extreme, well, normally. Our total cumulative snow fall this winter is about 4 feet, with 30" falling on Super Bowl weekend! All of the restaurants and bars are closed because everyone is snowed in. Home parties are cancelled for the same reason and even if you can get out there is no place to park in neighborhoods. Think of the loss of revenue, to say nothing of the leftover cheese platters. I guess everyone is staying home and eating all that bread and milk that we stocked up on in preparation for snow. You might notice a shortage of toilet paper at your local stores. We have been hoarding it around here. Sorry, if you run short and can't find any, let me know and I'll send you a couple rolls of Scott, this stuff just throws us for a loop.
People tend to lose all good sense when we get a snowfall of more than 1/2", at least around here they do. Last weekend it snowed all day Saturday and ended sometime after midnight I believe. On Sunday afternoon my husband and I went out to run a few errands. We were stopped at a traffic light and looked over to the right where there was a line waiting at the car wash. Now I understand the need to get the salt off of your car but good lord! The snow had barely stopped and the roads were still a slushy, salty mess. Between the car wash and home these cars would be filthy again in a matter of moments! Seemed like a waste of time and $15 to me, how about you?
