IT'S NOT ALL POWER OUTAGES AND CAR ACCIDENTS
SOME PEOPLE LOVE THE WEATHER
Virtually no one has school in Southeast Wisconsin today, and some of them are taking full advantage of our winter wonderland.
My neighbor, Heather in Greendale just sent this photo in of the kids making a great snowman. Thanks girls. Nice job. If you're looking for more to do today, could one of you head across the street and shovel my driveway? Just asking.
It's an important reminder that snow is fun, and part of growing up and growing old in Wisconsin. We focus a lot on the inconvenience and the dangers of snowfall and today these freezing rain and ice storms. That said, I think most of us wouldn't have it any other way. That's winter in Wisconsin.
I got an email the other day reminding me of that, with photographic evidence. Here's what Julie writes:
"...so tell the weathermen to stop acting like it’s all so scary when it’s only a couple of inches! C’mon, people, we live in WISCONSIN! Maybe focus on the positive aspects of snowfalls...downhill ski, cross country ski, whiskey."
Point taken. So folks, drive carefully please, but then have fun!
Keep the emails and photos coming!
