Where’s the Snow?

One thing about living in the urban winter wonderland (more likely frozen, paved tundra), is that we get lot’s of snow to go with the bone chilling temperatures. We had the bone chilling temperatures last week, but no snow. This week we’ve got some fall type weather: it might be 50 degress tomorrow.

If it doesn’t snow by next Wednesday, we will have broken the record for the latest half-inch snowfall of the season. As of tonight, we’re already in 5th place. The weather forecast for the next 7 days calls for dry, warmer than average weather. Looks like we’ll break that record.

We’ll still see some of the white stuff though; the least amount of snow we’ve ever gotten in a season was 14.2 inches back in 1930-31. Really, I don’t mind not shoveling or constantly refilling my windsheild fluid from all the salt spray. But it sure does look a lot prettier with some snow for the Holidays.

    Oh no. No no no. It is perfectly fine just the way it is. I love it.

    And I know we’ll totally make up for it all in March anyway.

    I would like to have a little fluffy white stuff when I come home for Christmas, from Palm Springs. Besides, it really feels colder, or as you say “bone-chilling,” without some snow to blanket, layer, or insulate the friggin arctic blast! Sure, it’s warm now, but we all know that can change in a matter of an hour or so! But, it’s really a double-edged sword, because I hate the slop and salt and filthy-caked gray cars that ensues a day or two after the snow, especially if it warms up a bit. So, in reality, I really prefer to look out my back door and see the snow up on Mt. San Jacinto.

    I would love some snow even if it means shoveling (yes, SHOVELING) my driveway because I am old school. It just isn’t a real Christmas unless the ground is blanketed in white, fluffy snow. Not that I am complaining about 50 degrees today, it just seems unnatural — especially for Minnesota.
