#MicroblogMondays: Snow Delays & other observations

Microblog_Mondays

It snowed here on Saturday night. School was on a 2 hour delay today. And I get it, the county roads (and even some of the main ones) were icy this morning. But I was a bit unprepared for it when someone mentioned snow days last week. Living in NYC as long as I have I had forgotten that it takes much less snow elsewhere in the world. It’s supposed to snow overnight tonight and school was called delay tomorrow by 2:30 this afternoon.

While, driving I have to repeatedly remind myself I can in fact turn right on red (a no no in the city). I also have to remember to budget in time for the inevitable farm equipment I will be driving behind for several miles on a curving road.

I’d forgotten how much it stinks to have to scrape ice off the wind shield of the car. I did figure out the best place to park though so at least the sun hits the car before I have to leave each morning.

It’s interesting to think about how these little annoyances build up so quickly, because when I think about winter in the city – especially when I am was working out of the house full time – it’s not a picnic with the walking everywhere in the wind snow and cold.

I guess what I mean to say is we will always comment on the weather. And isn’t the snow so pretty.

I got FIVE comments last week. Thank you. One of my goals for blogging in 2016 is to leave at least one comment for each comment received. So ten is the goal for this week.

    Snow is gorgeous!! It snowed this weekend in StL so I’m feeling nostalgic for that. I wish it would snow here but it surely won’t. I’m sure, like you say, the annoyances add up and people who get snow all the time just find it frustrating, but… I’m jealous. šŸ˜‰ How long are you out there?

    We have a small amount (for January in New Hampshire) of snow and ice on the ground, with more on the way tonight. I agree with the pretty, and with the annoying. *grin*

    Congrats on the five comments last week! I’ve found that when I spend Tuesday going through the links on Mel’s #MicroblogMondays widget, and leave as many comments as I can, I end up with more comments on my posts. Plus, I get to read tons of great things, and I usually end up with some ideas for future posts. šŸ™‚

    Yeah, the snow is lovely. It is something I can only imagine as I live in the tropics. Sun and rain is as far as we go. šŸ™‚
