Ok, I realize that I live in Illinois, home of weather that changes so fast you can't even shake a stick at it. But this is ridiculous! It is snowing again? It has been doing something of the white precipitation persuasion every day for the past week. And the wind, enough is enough already! You don't need to blow so hard that you create 10 foot drifts, that is overly dramatic don't you think Mother Nature.
I live about 8 miles north of a small town and about 25 miles from a decent size town. I work in this said town. I live close to a major interstate and right now, I can't see it. Just to clarify, normally I can see but not hear it. Everything has turned into a sea of thick heavy white FoNow. If you don't know what FoNow is, then you really haven't experienced winter yet. FoNow is a mixture of Fog and Snow. It makes driving conditions from already ice covered roads really terrible. It kind of stinks, when you know you are driving on a sheet of ice but you can't see it. Oh how I love winter in Illinois NOT! The only thing worse is that we can't seem to elect a governor that isn't a CROOK, with a capital C.
I would love to be able to tell you that we have such and such inches of snow on the ground... but unfortunately, I can't tell because it is covered up with drifts varying in sizes from 2 foot to 10 foot. Right now, judging from the view out my window it looks like our neighbors truck is about to be engulfed in one fo these said drifts. HA! Sorry, I guess it isn't really that funny.. lol yes it is!
So, Christmas is just about upon us, I am just about done shopping. Just a couple of gift cards to pick up and some stocking stuffers and this year is complete. I am ready for it to be over. Ready to see what the new year will bring. Hopefully we can make it through this year without someone close to us passing on, that will be something that hasn't happened in at least 3 years now. I am hopeful that Jim will be called back to work soon and I am also hopeful for Haley to continue down the road of respect for others and most importantly herself.
