Snow no more

February 21, 2011 - Chuck Hunt
Enough, already. As I write this on Monday, Feb. 21, it is snowing like crazy. It snowed, iced, sleeted, rained, snowed some more and thundered (with lightening) yesterday. The sleet and ice built up, and has become impossible to shovel or snow blow. Scraping may be the only solution. I don’t mean to whine, but the week before our giant mounds of snow melted like crazy. I had bare green grass showing in my yard. Birds were singing. I got out my golf clubs. Spring was here. Now it isn’t. OK, so February is too early to think spring. But, it sure felt like it. Which makes this weather on Sunday and today even more unbearable. Then, just to add insult to injury, I had friends from the south call or email on Monday. One was sitting on the beach in Florida where it was 82 degrees. Another is in Zehuatenejo, Mexico. She said that Minnesota’s Sunday snowstorm was on their local Zehuatenejo television news. Yeah, there has been a lot of snow this winter. And, yes, I am tired of it. Tired of driving in it, tired of shoveling it, tired of seeing it. The Old Farmer’s Almanac says between the middle of February to the middle of April we will have four significant snowfalls. I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to make that prediction this year.
