We, in the Chicago area, are supposed to get 11, yes, ELEVEN more inches of snow, starting this afternoon around four. That’s on top of the snow already on the ground. And more is coming.
What fun. Not!
A friend of mine called and said they are warning people that if they go out tonight to be sure and have food, water, blankets and a flashlight in their car. It’s never a good thing to hear that.
Apparently Mother Nature has been playing with us, leading us to believe that this was going to be one of the best winters ever. She started out with a fall ice storm and then calmed down and things have been blissful. Now, however, she’s decided that she’s been nice long enough, and all bets are off. Sigh.
It seems ridiculous that we can’t steer the planet. I mean then we could just turn it toward the SUN, once in awhile. It only seems fair. But no. The planet pretty much does whatever it feels like doing, and we’re just along for the ride. I mean it’s not as if we can go anywhere else, right? I still can’t believe we all live on a rock flying through space and all we do is kill everything. How crazy are we? Never mind, it was a rhetorical question.
Is it spring yet?
