I sidled through the front office, not really wanting to talk to anyone. Our assistant, truly a wonderful woman, was talking about the weather. I slowed down and feigned interest in the fax machine. I had to hear what she was saying.
It’s been unseasonably warm here and hasn’t really snowed at all. She was animatedly talking to George about “the horrible snow storm that was coming”
Call me crazy, but I like snow. It’s pretty. It’s sparkly. It dresses up otherwise cloudy, grey days. It slows things down. Which is what should happen in Winter. Winter should be slower than Spring, Summer and Fall. At least a little bit.
Her “There’s supposed to be a storm. And then, even worse, we’re getting a double whammy, it’s going to be a Lake Effect snow event. They are supposed to shut down all the freeways along the shores of the Great Lakes.”
George “I can’t imagine. That sounds horrible”
So starts my first Winter Weather rant…
It’s December. It hasn’t snowed yet. I’d like it to snow so it feels a little bit more like Christmas. It’s December in Cleveland. It snows here.
I guess the two years I spent living in Buffalo have hardened me to all but the worst winter storms. And temperatures. And white outs. I say bring it, bring us the snow. Welcome to Winter in Cleveland.
