My dad sent this to me about a month and a half ago. I saved it to share with you guys, and obviously never did. I was just cleaning out some email folders and found it again. They made me giggle...
We're having a first real snow storm here today. We're supposed to get 8-12 inches. There were already school closings announced last night. About an hour ago, I received an automated call from Stud's college, saying that the school would be closing at 2:00. About 15 minutes later, he walked in the door. He had his first class at 9am, but his second class was obviously cancelled. He's not happy, since the second class is one that he really loves. Actually, the first class is the one he likes the least. Poor thing.
Since I have the unexpected pleasure of having my son home early, I think I'm going to make him hate me by dragging him to Sam's Club. I missed my Saturday trip, and the cupboards are a little bare.
On the way home, we'll probably stop at my parents' and shovel a bit. When Magnum left this morning for his parents' house, he asked me to wait until he came home, so he could help me. That may or may not be because I was teasing him last night about this snow. He was more or less pitching a fit about the impending snow storm, since that means more work for him. The last time it snowed, he ended up plowing his parents' driveway, of course, and then the neighbors on both sides of them, as well as across the street. His dad has a honking big snow blower, so once he had it running, he just kept going.
Anyway, he was bitching like an old man last night while we were watching the news in bed, and said something really supportive, like, "Quit your whinin'! At least you have a snow blower. I'll be doing my parents' driveway by hand!" Yeah, I'm thoughtful like that.
But, I'm going to make Stud do it, instead, so his old father doesn't have to do it. I haven't gone there yet because the snow is still coming down hard. It's supposed to continue until about 9 pm, so it doesn't make sense to do it too early, since it'll just keep snowing. I'm wondering if we should even do it after Sam's Club, since it's only about 1pm. Guess I'll play it by ear. We'll probably still stop there to say hello.
Ok, time to find my boots, and get out into that beautiful winter wonderland!
