All Things in Moderation

Dear Mother Nature,

I know that I live in Alaska...ARCTIC Alaska no less.....

...but is THIS really necessary? After all this will be the 4th blizzard in nine days.

We haven't even had a chance to dig out from the last three.

Look at Maija's house. She barely bothered to try. I guess she's the smart one. Heck, at my house we pushed snow around yesterday for three hours. We shouldn't even have bothered.

I mean REALLY, Mother Nature, all things in moderation, you know? We all like some snow every now and then...but this???

This is too much of a good thing.

We would like to request that March be cancelled due to lack of interest. Kthnxbai.

We used to have drifts like that when I was a kid. If they were soft, we'd take a ladder to the roof and jump into them. If they were hard, we'd dig snow forts into them. Snow really is for the children.

I as enjoy your accounts and pictures...I am adding a link to you on my blog!
Wish I could come help you shovel some,

Living in town, I don't have to contend with drifts like that - and I sure don't miss it much. I'm with Ishmael: snow is for kids!
But, shouldn't we have put in a request to have February cancelled instead... Bit late for that but maybe another year!

All I can say is, Wow!

Wow - gives a different perspective to shoveling out - maybe I won't complain as much when I have to shovel our measly 8" (maybe).

How ever do you stay warm?

We stay warm because all that stupid snow acts as an insulator around the bottom of our stick/stilt houses...I guess that's the only good thing, right?!

I sure didn't bother, but Dean came home for the day, took the loader, took out five swipes to get into the garage, shoveled the porch, and found our stairs...but then it stormed again, so we're back at square one.

Shovel one foot, two feet of snow drifts... I can't wait until April.
