Just got finished reading Debs' post about snow in Maine and looking at Stevie Foodstamps FB pictures of snow in ABQ and reading emails from my ex-wife about the blizzard in Oklahoma and all I got to say is: Better you than me!
I hate the fucking snow. Growing up in Germany and Washington and Missouri, I had enough of that nasty shit. And if I wasn't real sure about it by then, being stationed in Germany and spending every motherfucking winter month in the field for 3 years damned sure convinced me.
One of the nice things about living in this pinko state is I can travel to the snow if I feel a need to get my truck stuck in a ditch. Seriously, a common saying when asked what's going on this weekend is "Oh, I thought we might go to the snow." And yes, with the crest of the Sierra Nevada only an hour and a half away, I can find snow all year round somewhere.
And I'll admit that going to the snow can be entertaining even if you don't ski, sled or anything else. If you don't believe me, next time I go (in a week or three) I'll take video of CharlieGodammit chasing motherfuckers in snowshoes. It's absolutely hilarious watching them try to run and then try to climb trees with snowshoes on with that dog dead off on their asses.
He does all right on skiers too, although he's yet to actually catch one of them.
