Heard what, you say??
...The long, low groan that is resounding throughout the state
as we learn the prediction of a new 7-12 inches
of snow beginning around midnight tonight
and continuing all day tomorrow.
Did I mention the 25 mph winds that will accompany said snow?
Parking bans. Cancelled events.
Mobs in the grocery store.
The whole nine yards.
All this week, those trusty public works guys
I've shown you before have been sweeping
the streets and sidewalks clean
of a winter's accumulation of salted sand.
Here we go again.
A state motto is "The way life should be."
They leave out the asterisk that leads to the small print:
"except in March".
"Poor man's fertilizer" is my new mantra.
(...and "This, too, shall pass".)
