Let it Snow!
All day yesterday we were warned that a Major Snow Storm will hit the east coast today. Well, they were right. This was the scene from our back deck as the first light of morning dawned.
I love the snow, just as long as it is somewhere else. The lack of snow is another one of the reasons I moved to southern Delaware. When we do get snow, which we didn’t get any last year, it rarely lasts more than a day.
When we moved down here November 17, 2006, Bill insisted in bring his snow blower. It only took him one season to realize that the only thing that snow blower was doing was taking up precious space in our garage. He gave it to our neighbor who gave it to a friend of his who lived in Pennsylvania, where it snows. We remember, because that is where we used to live. Our snow blower got plenty of business in PA, not so much here.
Fortunately I don’t have to go to work today. But, our Christmas party is tomorrow night. I do look forward to going to the Christmas part. The owner of the hotel where I work is a very generous man and he always gives his employees a wonderful catered Christmas party. This year like last year, it will be at the Second Street Grill restaurant in Lewes. I hope this snow lets up by then. Bill will still have to take me in his four wheel activated Jeep Laredo.
This morning I called both of my brothers. Isaac, who lives in Pennsylvania (where the snow is) and John, who lives in South Carolina (my sister-in-law told me they got a “touch” of snow.) We moved our Mom to South Carolina to avoid having her deal with the snow. This is looking like a pretty good decision now.
Today I’m going to hang around the house and maybe scan some more of my old photos into my computer. I’m still on a roll in digging through the remaining boxes that are still unpacked in my basement media room. Will that ever end? I still haven’t found my old negatives. They’re someplace waiting for me to find them.
Now it’s raining outside. I can hear and see the rain beating on the windows of my front room office. If we’re lucky it will turn to sleet. Oh joy.
