Tag Archives: Snow still sucks

And now, onto the snow!

I hate snow.  I didn’t always hate snow but I hate it now.  As this has been a weird winter, I sort of guess I’ll need to just deal with it.  If not, my crying will likely freeze tears right to my face.    If it wasn’t for the cold and wet and the hazardous driving, and the cold and the wet, I might enjoy the snow itself well enough.  It is pretty after all.

I was up sort of early this morning and snapped this picture of a bridge in town.  You know, I sort of have a thing for bridges…especially blue ones apparently.  Anyhow, I thought this was a pretty scene.  Of course my feet got wet and snow ran clear down my back to…well…you know…clear down my back as it melted.  It’s still falling like crazy and the kids are out of school for weather rather than our water disaster.  I suppose there is happiness in my house…or will be when everyone finally wakes up!

If it has to snow…

If it has to snow, I guess we might as well do something to enjoy it.  We didn’t get too much snow on Friday but Abigail in particular decided to make the most of it.  I bribed her brother to go and sled with her and it worked…he fell for it.

I had decided earlier in the day not to wear any pants all Saturday.  Before you think me too creepy, I wore shorts all day, even out in the 25 degree weather.  I wasn’t cold for some reason and it had nothing to do with Uncle Bill’s special cold weather elixir.

Anyhow, hills in WV are plentiful but hills that won’t kill you are somewhat harder to find.  The kids spent an hour or so rolling up and down the little hill out back with sleds and without.  It was really a pretty awesome time.  The kids had a lot of fun together and any time we get that chance, I will take it.

While standing out in the snow, I also discovered the my phone can take really awesome panoramic photos.  I took a few pics of the area from different angles.  I sort of hate to admit it but the whole scene was sort of pretty.

I guess I might have had blood flow issues though as my body tried to warm my legs so I do not want to fully commit to claiming any part of winter is nice.

I had the opportunity to enjoy my favorite holiday of the year with my kids and that was pretty cool.  I know you are thinking that Groundhog Day can’t possibly be Warren’s favorite holiday but, friends, I am here to tell you it is!  It means the days are starting to feel longer, the maples will soon be blooming and winter is soon to be over!  This year Phil was very kind also.  And just to go on the record, Punxsutawney Phil is the one true seer, the prognosticator of all prognosticators.  The others are all impostors!
