Ah-ah, ah! Ah-ah, ah!
We come from the land of the ice and snow.
From the midnight sun, where the hot springs flow.
– Led Zeppelin — Immigrant Song
People, let us all try to remain calm and in a quiet and orderly manner let us all rush out together to the nearest grocery store and clear all the shelves of milk and bread. No time like the present to stock-up. After all, it is only the beginning of January. We likely have weeks, I mean months, more of winter yet to contend with. Who knows how long these alphabetized winter storms will continue to lash us? Although, it is rather nice of the Weather Channel to alphabetize them for us. The important thing folks is to remain calm. It is only snow and less an inch of it at that. I’m sure that we can soldier through this difficulty together, if we just remain calm. Well, you can forget that, let’s panic! Panic! Panic! Panic!
Well, it really wasn’t as all bad as that. No one that I saw lost control. The snow started after midnight last night and ran until noon today. Anne got to sleep in an extra hour, after she learned that her school had gone to a snow schedule. I gave her a ride to school, after the problems she had with her car’s doors yesterday. First, she couldn’t get them open and then once she did get them open, she could not get them closed. It just seemed easier to give her a ride today. Afterwards, my commute was even easier. If anyone needs me, I’ll be out on the highway, parked there with everyone else, at least for a few hours, just for old times sake.
