Snow-By now, most of you should know that I hate snow. But it’s beautiful, you might say. Yeah, it’s beautiful the first time, second time and even the third time you ever see it. After that, it’s just a huge pain in the ass. Especially when I have to drive in it. And shovel a walkway to my car. And have wet feet everyday because dress shoes (which I have to wear to work) are never insulated.
Illness- It never fails. This is the time of year when I get so sick that I feel like I’m going to die. Whether it is the common cold, the flu, strep throat, bronchitis, or even the stomach flu, I’m down for the count.
The Cold- For the past week it hasn’t been over 20 degrees Fahrenheit here. It is freakin’ cold. My body aches from shivering so much. Not to mention the ice that forms EVERYWHERE due to the below freezing temperatures. I haven’t fallen yet (knock on wood) but I’m sure it’s coming.
Drivers- Everyone in West Virginia should be fully aware that we get snow. Most of the time, a lot of snow. But what you think would be common knowledge, obviously isn’t. Even a light dusting of snow sends everyone into a panic and they drive like idiots.
Fuel Costs- My furnace requires fuel to run. For 100 gallons we had to fork over nearly $400. Chances are we are going to have to get more before winter is over.
Happy Friday everyone!
