Storm Watch '07
The local weathermen are working themselves into a frenzy over the "big nor'easter" we're supposed to be getting. They're saying things like "Snow, sleet, freezing rain--it's a doozy!" Snowfalls are expected to total six inches. SIX INCHES! Big whoop--tell that to Oswego.
Still, it's nice to settle in for the night with some hot tea and brace for the storm--such as it is. It was conditioned in me since childhood that this particular kind of snowfall, one that starts late at night and is supposed to continue through dawn, is the best kind. It means the roads won't be clear before school starts and will most likely result in a snow day. A snow day!
With tomorrow being Valentine's Day, I thank my lucky stars that I'm no longer in the flower business. Getting all the flower deliveries out for an ordinary Valentine's Day is hellish enough, let alone trying to do it in the slush and ice of a winter storm. My condolences to all the florists out there. Better you than me.
