Snow Snow Snow


Last time I checked it was February. I live in the Midwest. The average temperature this time of year is 32 degrees. There is always a chance for snow, this area averages 38 inches per year. Unless it's July or August there is no history of a chance of snow.

Yet every time it snows here the news media goes crazy.

I know this will make me sound old, but when I was younger I don't remember snow being a big deal unless the forecast was for feet not inches of snow. Is it just me or are we celebrating mediocrity yet again?

Just enjoy nature as it happens. Quit over analyzing.

Nature I love.
The 24 hour news coverage of something that happens naturally is what bugs me.
