It's a white world
I could perhaps, title this post "I hate Groundhogs". Seriously, they are gigantic fat RODENTS!!!! Rodents. You know, like RATS...only bigger. Since when did we decide to listen to a RODENT'S advice about how long our winters will last. It's a stupid idea. That's all I have to say. (not really- I have lots more to say on the subject)
SPRING IS COMING PEOPLE! It's almost here. I hereby annoint myself as prophet of the seasons. ignore the chubby giant rat and listen to me. I can smell the Spring.
Through 8 inches of snow. Which happens to be more snow than St Louis has ever received, since my 12 years of living here. Craziness. The world is crazy. A week ago, it was 70 degrees, then cam ice, while it was STILL 50 degrees, a possible tornado, drug abuse, murder, mayhem, and the dependance on a groundhog to bring forth hope.
On a sweeter note:
See that tiny brown dot over by the red van? That is Dustan. No, we didn't get a new van. I sent him out to shovel our walk, and commenced in making him a giant cup of hot cocoa. It was done, the driveway was shoveled, even my van was cleaned off, but Dustan was no where to be found. Finally, I spotted him, across the street, a few house down, shoveling the driveway of a stranger.
This man teaches me what it means to be "christ-like". I love him dearly. Oh, and we don't know these neighbors...I bet they are in for a pleasant surprise.
Which they will need after hearing what that stupid giant rat had to say this morning somewhere in Pennsylvania. Why is it that we listen to him again?
