Missing in Action...
But this year has been something completely unreal. We had a green Christmas AND a green New Years--but after that, all bets were off. Mother Nature has dumped storm after storm upon us--one foot of snow, two feet, one foot--week after week! I'm not exaggerating, we have had a massive storm EVERY Wednesday for the entire month of January. We just barely get ourselves dug out when the snow slams us again.
My best friend's father said something like, "I haven't seen snow like this since the blizzard of '77."
But that's the thing. The blizzard of '77 was just that--a blizzard. ONE storm. Boom. And then you dug out, and you were done. This winter has just been relentless. So much worse.
Honestly, I like the area I am in. But if we get another winter like this next year, I am strongly considering splitting my time between New England and Florida. I can't take another year of this!
Anyway, I'm alternatively seethingly angry and devastatingly depressed as of late, and as such am finding it difficult to blog. But I'll try to keep up appearances around here. If you try not to miss me too much ;)
