I think we may have a white Christmas this year. Its odd but through the years that is thing I always hope for. Then came last year with its back-to-back snowstorms that piled up so much snow I couldn’t get out of my neighborhood for days. For weeks there was no school and I discovered what it meant to have cabin fever.
I live in the part of Virginia that usually gets very little snow. It does snow around these parts but it’s usually gone the next day. Sometimes we even get enough to build a snowman, most of the time, though he is just a puddle by midday.
The worst part of snow in Va. Is the fact that nobody around here knows what to do about it. They don’t know how to drive in it, get rid of it, or clear it out of parking lots. The stores are crowded with people expecting to hunker down for months. Grocery store shelves are bare and you practically have to go on the black market to get any of the basic three… bread, milk, and toilet paper. The way we act around here cause northerners to roll on the floor with laughter.
Still I always long for the white stuff around Christmas. Blame it on the song “White Christmas.” So now they are calling for a snow to begin on Christmas and end…well maybe the day after. That pretty much is cause for an apocalypse around here.
I think I just may ask Santa for a snow blower.
