the GOOD thing about winter
Is that you get to complain! And grouse and bitch...and bitch some more! Am I happy that people in the south have had a couple of doses of snow, so that when I complain of snow as a nuisance and danger, not a Christmas card, they can understand?
I heard the other day that there is a 3 mile underground tunnel in Norway, allowing awesome skiing training year round. You wonder why the IOC is so stupid they hold the Olympics in Russia...in the absolute warmest part of Russia where it is warm and they have to MAKE snow. We have so much! So does the rest of Russia! Will we see news reports in coming years of THE REAL story, bags of cash being passed around like candy to influence the vote? As a person who has no respect for these particular Olympics and the authoritarian regime sponsoring it (ditto the summer games 6 years ago) I wonder why they don't just use the nice facility in nice Norway, a place everyone likes, a place that is wintry and doesn't beat your head in if you are LGBT OR disagree with the gov't, and does not require 50 billion in bribes and new construction to put on the Olympics...
Anyway, despite the horrible snow storm going on now, a thaw is expected for us later this week. We have had much worse winters, colder, snowier, longer. And I bet it is like 80 degrees March 10 and 99 on May 1....
Doesn't the wife look cute and colorful here? And above, YEP, there are icicles bigger than me hanging off the roof...
