Snow Stats

The first day of snow for the season

Last night on the local news they said we've had snow 33 of the last 40 days. Wow!! More snow fell again today and there is snow in the forecast again for tomorrow. Now it is Minnesota and we're pretty familiar with snow days. But this is getting a little old.

Earlier in the week fellow potter bloggers at Whynot Pottery in North Carolina were commenting on the snow they've been receiving in the south.

"but what is it about snow that is so distracting? Do people who live with this all the time just move along and don't stop in wonder and amazement. Here in the south we want to get out the board games, put on the kettle, get out the needle point and sit by the fire. We can wait for it all to be gone."

I hadn't really thought about how ambivalent we are to the beautiful white stuff. We get up in the morning and brush snow off our car so we can drive to work. Clean it off again to go out to lunch and again to drive home from work. Ultimately, it becomes something we hardly think about.

Snow days in Whynot, North Carolina sound like a lot more fun than snow days here. Maybe I'll have to work on that.

Hey Sue- nice to be quoted!
I am still dealing with a skating rink front yard.
I wish we could have nice snow and then go about our days as we always do- but this ice stuff is a problem.
I drove to work today which is really funny considering the short walk it should be.
Another winter for the record books!

Hope you get thawed out soon Meredith. One snow day at home is fun, but after that... not so much. Be well.
