The weather guys said that we were going to get some snow after midnight. Rush hour in the snow is always fun. I left an hour early and took something to eat and drink just in case. There are always guys, you know the type, that think driving fast and weaving in and out of traffic is a sign of manhood. Maybe it’s my age or maybe because I drove for a living, but I do get a chuckle when I see them in a ditch or slapped up against the median strip. But I digress. The closer to the lake I got, the heavier the snow. Great, I thought, I’ll get to work and then they’ll call school off. I didn’t get to school. The call came before I got there. I got home just in time to shovel. Today it’s in the 40’s and sunny. By Monday, there won’t be any snow left, just water and mud in the back yard.
