I know I shouldn’t be wishing for more snow as many of my friends in other states have been buried in the stuff. However, since I work for a school with the promise of snow days, I just can’t help myself. Days like today would be perfect to hide away in my office and write. But alas, again it is snowing just enough to make the rush hour miserable, but not dangerous enough to close the schools. Besides, the snow crews up here are fabulous. They have the streets plowed in no time.
No fair, Mother Nature. We had no snow days last year and it appears we won’t have any again this year. Why dump everything you’ve got on Kansas City? Moreover, Texas, why Texas? I know you’re angry with the human race because we’ve been a little neglectful…okay we’ve abused this beautiful Earth, but some of us have wised up. More and more people are recycling instead of throwing everything in the garbage. We, I included of course, now make efforts not to buy anything packaged in Styrofoam (egg companies being the primary offender). However, many restaurants aren’t cooperating in the effort to provide recyclable take home cartons. I even rent a special rolling trash can-like recycle bin. So why take it out on all of us. You must admit you’ve been pretty brutal lately in some areas of the world.
Okay, okay, I get it. I need to stop complaining, because Mother Nature is going to do what she pleases and me getting a day off doesn’t work for everybody. There aren’t many companies who shut down even when there are blizzard conditions. Those individuals still have to drive in the mess. I shall stop complaining and being selfish, and think of others.
So to my readers and to Mother Nature, I say thanks for letting me rant. I hope wherever you are, you are having a safe and productive day. Besides, it is Friday. I can hide in my office and write tomorrow.
Until next time.
