After Tuesday’s all day/all night snowstorm which dumped over 40 centimeters of drifting snow on us, I have to remind myself of just how pretty winter can be.  hard not to want to run like this guy considering what Snowmageddon left behind – endless unplowed sidewalks and streets, people stuck on a number of our highways from Tuesday evening until the early hours of Wednesday morning because some brainiac decided to close them for cleaning but neglected to advise that there happened to be over 800 cars stuck on that stretch of highway they wanted to clean.  I had to shovel through snow up to my waist to make a path to be able to get out onto the street which was the only walkable area and man, do not even get me started about public transit and the horror that is. Just a few short days ago, I could see my back yard’s exposed lawn and now it is completely inundated in white again. UGH!!!   I am so, so, SO ready for Spring.
