Okay, there is no knitting or stitching content in this post--I just need to blow off steam.
There are two days a year I like snow--Christmas Eve and Christmas Day--that is it. What am I looking at right now on Columbus Day? At least 6 inches or more of snow!!!! I HATE SNOW!!! I have hated it ever since I had to trudge through feet of it to go to school(elementary through high school), since I have had to brush it off my car 2 or more times a day(when I started working), since I have had to drive through lake effect(also numerous times), and since I have had to shovel untold feet of it on numerous occasions. The only time snow is cool is when you get to look at it but don't actually have to deal with it.
Moved to Texas in 1996--no snow and if it "slushed" which really, people, is what you see in Dallas; everything closed--so I didn't have to go out in the snow.
Moved to Hawaii in 1998--well, duh, totally no snow there.
Moved to Utah in 2000--lots of snow in the mountains--surprisingly hardly any accumulation in the valleys--this is a good, if not great, thing.
Colorado 2005---not looking good at ALL so far.
Please fellow Coloradans(?) tell me that this is not normal(and be honest) because I cannot go back to the "Buffahole" winters I left in the first place(Buffahole, for the uninitiated, is my pet name for Buffalo, NY where I grew up--it's crappy weather central there).
Sorry if I bummed anyone out or offended them, but I really hate snow.
(by the way, it's STILL snowing and it's not looking too promising for a stoppage anytime soon)
I guess if there is a bright spot to this(and really there isn't I'm just looking for some optimism); I got to bring out my sweaters today.
