Giving credit where credit is due, folks living 70 - 90 miles south of here have 10 to 12 inches of snow on the ground so far, so the forecasters got that part right. But my little suburb was lucky to see maybe half a dozen snowflakes. Not exactly the makings of the horrible Friday morning commute they have been warning us about.
There are many who are disappointed the storm missed us. I'm sure those who ski or ride snowmobiles would like to see some snow. The little we had is gone after a week of 50-plus temps. Me...no complaints here. I have kids and their spouses and a couple of grands who have to drive to and from work no matter what the weather and I am happier knowing they are driving on dry roads.
In a normal year, we are up to our backsides in snow by now. That being said, here is what my oldest daughter was doing last week.
"Golfing in February. Awesome."
She has a great sense of humor and makes me laugh. Laughter is the very best medicine. :)
