Marquette, MIFebruaray 21, 2014 – April Snow in February

I love winter & I love the snow… but the warm weather over the past few days has ruined the snow and made driving trecherous.  The olympians in Sochi have nothing on those driving to work in Upper Michigan today.  You like figure skating?  Today, cars will spin like an ice princess doing a triple lutz… and they will get points for it too… insurance points.  You like slalom skiing? the olympians have nothing on the Crazy drivers weaving in & out of traffic trying to get to work on time, and like skiers – some will crash off the course.  Todays roads are most like the mogul ski course, though… a lot of bumps, the occaisional jump, and at the end, you’re just happy to be in one piece.

It isn’t just the cars that get to participate.  Shoppers in parking lots look a little like hockey players on the ice who are standing one minute and the next they’re flat on the ice.  Then they look a little like those curlers as they chase packges down the parking lot.  And families look a little like short-track speed-skaters… all bunched up with the occasional person falling down.  People shoveling their roof have the potential of looking like a ski jumpers too.

On a bright note, Governor Snyder has acknowleged the bad conditions this month and reminds everyone to drive safely & stay home.  Apparently he doesn’t care about the tow truck drivers & repair shops  – whose livelihood depends on people who don’t stay home OR drive safely.  As for me… I’ll tolerate the wet heavy snow that has coated my satellite dish until we get a nice new batch of snow I can play in… until then, I guess I’ll have to settle for building a snowman.  Make that a snow-person (for the politically correct folk.Dan Adamini – In The Right Mind
