I am not a complainer. Okay, I try not to be a complainer. The way I figure it no one really listens when you complain anyway. So, when I sit down at the computer and pull up the weather forecast and see this, I just have to sit back and take it as it comes. So what if I just put away all the boots, gloves, hats, mittens and winter jackets. (Mind you this is so probably why it is snowing right now) I don’t think that Mother Nature is keeping track of my household chores.

Mind you, we are so much closer to the 2000 feet rather than the 800 feet that there should be one of those “You Are Here” arrows pointing to that part of the forecast. So, go to sleep tonight with a dusting on the ground and who knows, could be more than a foot of snow on the ground tomorrow morning. C’est la vie. Maybe the boys will have a snow day.
Here’s a picture from Sunday afternoon.
