I am not exaggerating when I say that I shoveled our driveway three times today. THREE times. Why oh why didn't I just call Mr. Plow? I am regretting it now. We got officially dumped on today. And it wasn't the light, airy kind of snow that is easy to move. It was heavyyyy. All in all I would guess about 16". Madness. There were tons of school closings, all but Marquette, of course. So while I was outside shoveling for hours I pondered the true benefit of the stuff. My conclusion was this....
Snow is great and necessary for places like Utah or Colorado. There are mountains there, in which you can spend your time enjoying the snow. Wisconsin has no such thing. There is no skiing here. All of this snow is just wasted. I guess you could go snowmobiling, but whoopie. Don't get me wrong, I like snow, in moderation. I like the seasons, and I am going to desperately miss them when we leave, BUT come on. We have had snow for six out of the last ten days. It's days like this when all I want to do is get in a hot tub. 4 MORE DAYS till CA!!
