I must be getting old. I used to get excited about the snow, the more the better. . .
In western New York State, we usually have a few minor snow showers beginning as early as October. By Thanksgiving, we have had a "major snowfall"! Not this year! Last year was a mild winter. I don't remember cranking up my snowblower all winter. . . maybe I did, but definitely it was one or two times.
I resent cutting in to my coffee time in the morning to go out an blast away at a foot or more of snow just so I can get out to go to work. Then you come inside and lay out all your clothing on the floor and whatever else is available to dry out because it is soaked. . . not a good start to my day.
This winter is starting out like last winter and I'm happy!
Besides, I have a new car this year. And the less snow and salt I can get on it, the better. For those of you in the South or elsewhere that does not get snow, salt is put on the roads to help cut down on accidents. Great for traction, but terrible on cars.
