We are all hunkered down in our house with two feet of snow outside with drifts of around five feet. My Chicago upbringing however is hardwired. I cannot stay inside the house with a snow covered driveway. I just can’t. So I have cleared my driveway and can now drive to the wall of about three feet of snow on the street. In Virginia, they call snow removal “Spring.” However, I can drive up and down my driveway in a personal triumph against winter.
The kids have igloos and forts galore. Luna loves the snow though her fur hold about 100 pounds of ice when she comes in.
Fortunately, our power is still on so I am now sitting in my Blackhawks jersey awaiting tonight’s game (after watching the Broncos – Patriots game). Clean driveway. Major games. Inability to do outside house chores. What is there to complain about?
By the way, I love the fact that the network was supposed to show the Penguins – Capitals game today but, due to the weather, the game was canceled and replaced by female figure shaking. I can only imagine the hockey parties where hyped up guys turn on NBC only to find female figure shaking.
