View Full Version : First significant snowfall

As I look out the window the snow is gently falling in the dawn's early light. Very pretty today. We'll see how I feel about it in April. Peace on earth, good will towards men (and women).

That was very nice-the snow started a light flurry here this morning-its just something about the FIRST snowfall /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

When that happens here everybody runs to Kroger's and buys all the bread /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Don't ask me why. It's a Cincy tradition. Ask TomCincy. He'll verify it /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Sounds beautiful Paul. I envy you in a way. Here in Nor Cal we don't see the snow in the winter unless we drive up into the mountains. On the other hand, your comments about how you might feel about it in April reminded me of an old joke. It's been around for a while but this seems like a good time to dig it up. Hope you enjoy it:
<font color="blue">Aug 12 - Moved to Michigan. It is so beautiful here. The hills are so serene and beautiful. Can hardly wait to see snow cover them. God's country...I love it here.
Oct 14 - Michigan is the most beautiful place. The leaves are turning all different colors, I love the shades of red and orange. I went for a ride through the beautiful country side and spotted some deer, they are so graceful certainly they are the most peaceful animals on earth. This must be paradise Michigan, I love it here.
Nov 11 - Deer season will start soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such an elegant creature. The very symbol of peace and tranquillity. Hope it will snow soon...I love it here.
Dec 2 - It snowed last night. Woke up to find everything blanketed in white, it looks like a post card. We went outside and cleaned the snow off of the steps and shoveled the driveway. We had a snowball fight, (I won) and when the snowplow came by, we had to shovel the driveway out again. What a beautiful place. Mother nature in perfect harmony... I love Michigan.
Dec 12 - More snow last night. I love it. The snowplow did his trick again (that rascal). Winter wonderland... I love it here.
Dec 19 - More snow last night. Couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work this time. I'm exhausted from shoveling. F@#$%^& snowplow...
Dec 22 - More of the white s@#$ fell last night. I've got blisters on my hands from all this d@#% shoveling. I think the snow plow man hides around the corner and waits till I'm done shoveling my driveway...a_ _ hole!
Dec 25 - "White Christmas" my busted a@#! More friggin snow. If I ever get my hands on that son-of-a-b@#$% who drives that snow plow, I swear I'll castrate that dumb bastard. Don't know why they don't use more salt on the roads to melt this f@#$%^ ice.
Dec 28 - More white s@#$ fell last night. Been inside since Christmas Day, except for shoveling out the driveway after "Snow Plow Harry" comes by, prick...g_ _-d_ _ _ car is behind a ton of snow. The weatherman said to expect another 10 inches of s@#$ tonight. Do you know how many shovels of snow 10 inches is?
Jan 1 - Happy F@#$%^$ New Year. The weatherman was wrong (again.) We didn't get 10" last night, we got 34", stupid a_ _ weatherman anyway. At this rate it won't melt before the 4th of July. The snow plow got stuck up the road and the s@#$head had the balls to come to the door and asked to borrow my shovel. After I told him I've broken 6 shovels already, shoveling all the sh@# he pushed into my driveway, I broke the last one over his f@#$%$ head.
Jan 4 - Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food, on the way back a g@#d@#$ deer ran in front of me. I hit the bastard and tore my car all to hell. Did $3,000 in damages. Those f@#$%^$ beasts should be killed. Wish the hunters had killed all of them last November.
May 3 - Took the car to the garage in town. Would you believe the thing rotted out from all the f@#$%^$ salt they keep dumping all over the road. Car looks like a piece of s@#$.
May 10 - Moved back to Florida, I can't imagine why anyone in their right f@#$%^$ mind would ever want to live in this g@#-forsaken place called Michigan.

LOL, that's a good one. I read a similar joke about firewood once upon a time. BTW, the guy just plowed my driveway for $15, took him all of 6 minutes.

It is a true Cincinnati tradition.
Forcasts that include any amount of accumulation will PACK the local food marts with feverous shoppers looking for the freshest bread, milk and sausage. Strange, there is always a good amount of beer in the frige. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

That happens around here, too. It's amazing! A 3" storm will pack the supermarkets.

LMAO! Thanks for the much needed humor break! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
