Snow is great when it stops by for a quick visit. Everyone is happy to see snow when it comes for a visit. We “Oooh and aaah,” at the new fallen snow. The kids have a day off, everyone sleeps in and goes sledding. Win -win everyone’s happy. In a few days time snow has packed up and moved on. It’s a great visit once or twice a year at the most three times. And if you are missing snow when its gone you can visit it where it lives all winter long on the ski slopes.
This year snow has turned into an obnoxious guest staying uninvited all winter long.
Like most people living in the Northeast who have been blanketed by snow all winter I am so sick of snow!!!! It just keeps snowing and snowing and snowing… and nothing has melted. It just won’t go away.
Facebook feeds are jammed with anti-snow messages.
Snow has claimed almost all the spots on the street and in parking lots. You can’t find a spot anywhere due to sky-high snow mounds. Yesterday I spent 15 minutes circling the grocery store parking lot and ended up parking on a snow bank.
Everything has been cancelled. School, parties, athletic games and practices, all types of meetings, doctors appointments, and religion classes- everything! Who even wants to plan an event because you know the snow will come and it will be cancelled. With all these cancellations comes rescheduling nightmares. Cancellations and delays also cause major problems for working parents who have to make alternate plans so they can go to work.
The constant speculation of will there be school or won’t there be school gives me anxiety. Will we find out tonight or will they let us know tomorrow morning at 5am? The not knowing drives me crazy as does all the social media speculation.
The roads are really dangerous. The snow and its annoying second cousin Ice make for treacherous driving conditions. As do the idiots on the road who think they can drive 100 miles an hour in the snow and ice, although that can’t really be blamed on snow they were probably idiots before the snow fell.
Do you feel like you just shoveled? It’s probably because you just did. Even with a snow blower it’s a tremendous pain in the butt. Shoveling is physically taxing work and extremely annoying.
I have really nice shoes. Not that you would know it because I have been wearing snow boots all winter. They are hot, itchy and bulky and they really don’t go with anything. I am desperate to wear a pair of flip flops and not just at the nail salon.
We all have windows we know it’s snowing. However the snow compels us to post pictures of our car thermometers and write posts telling everyone it’s snowing. We get it, it’s snowing. We are all #OverIt
Walking anywhere is a huge problem. Snow is covering sidewalks and walkways making it exceedingly difficult to get around. People are forced to walk in the roads which can be dangerous.
I get they have a job to do they need to report the news which includes impending storms, but does that include freaking everyone out. Based on these impending storms warned about in news reports people hit the supermarkets in hordes to wipe out the bread and milk. You know for all those milk sandwiches. Everyone is so freaked out by the apocalyptic snow storms reported by the news media events are often cancelled before a flake even falls.
There are 15 days until Spring starts…. Will this snow ever melt?
