The weather forcast all over for the weekend calls for snow and a lot of it. For some strange reason, it looks like it will stop short of New Hampshire. And while most folks here are grateful, I confess, I feel a little disappointed.
Sure, three feet of new snow means slippery roads and a whole lot of digging out. But it also means overtime for the folks on the road crew, better conditions on the ski slopes and cheerful snowmen in the side pasture.
While everyone else is stocking up on milk and bread I prefer to head for the produce section for just the right carrots for noses. But this time no one is frantically driving to the grocer for a week's worth of supplies. We are all business as usual, heading for work, driving carpool and keeping appointments at the dentist. Around here a lot of people would rather dig out of a blizzard than sit in the dentist's chair.
Readers, would you rather suffer through three new feet of snow or a half hour in the dentist's chair?
