Sundays in My City – SNOW! (What else do you expect?)

February 6, 2011

in a picture is worth a thousand words

On February 1, 2011, at around 3 o’clock in the afternoon, snow started coming down together with the wind, fast and furious. The fortunate ones were able to stay in their own houses, waiting for the blizzard to end.

Before the sun came out again, the snow had stopped but the wind continued. When those fortunate people woke up on February 2, they were greeted with the aftermath of the blizzard and they picked up the shovels, started up their snowblowers and went to work.

Wonderful! Makes me want to make a snowman! You have nice, clean snow there… and a lot of it. I don’t think I’ve ever been anywhere with that much snow.

Why is it that a huge snow is a complete pain-in-the-butt but makes the best, joyful-looking photos?

First, pictures are awesome. I love how snow makes faces look so healthy. Never the less, being from Barcelona and living in Norway, i rather have a bit less “white”. This year has been, literally, a little too much, and I am sick of the snow at he moment….
Anyway, enjoy! 🙂

Said it before, will say it again, this is a sign from the Gods not to live in a place. This means a place in uninhabitable. Snow is for the fucking birds. Fuck snow. F it in the A!

But that’s because I was born and have returned to place where it is always between 50 and 75 degrees or something is terribly wrong and it’s time for a blood sacrifice, or at least to complain loudly. We have heat or humidity, but never both. Kind of like Ladyhawke, they both know the other one exists, but they never get to meet. If it’s foggy or raining, it’s cold. If it’s hot, it’s dry. And by cold or hot, I mean within the 50-75 degree range.

We pay in earthquakes, but we have no Seasons of Doom (blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, thunderstorms), where you know the weather is coming for your ass to kill you, your spouse, and your children. Weather is a plague leftover from Pharoh that is having too much fun to leave. Every year, coming for to carry you home. Off times, it sharpens its wet claws in a cave, watching its brothers wreck havoc upon you. Fuck seasons. That’s like living with someone who’s only nice to you half the time. It’s an abusive relationship, this weather business. No sir, I want no part of it. Yay Area for life.

Wow! You put my snow pics to serious shame! Looks like a seriously happy kid. Something about the smile of a kid when the snow comes that can’t be beat!

Happy Sunday!

Brrrr and shiver! Please pass a blanket and a mug of spiked hot chocolate, and place me near the fireplace. Or better yet, meet me somewhere 90 degrees and sunny.

Is Mr. Absence still absent? Good grief, honey, this looks WORSE than Alaska! Somebody call Al Gore and say, “Uncle!”

And, of course, the boys are fascinated and fascinating. How would we cope without the assistance of a child’s perspective?

The cuteness! It’s Winterlude in my city (winterfestival). I’m all a twitter. Not like the website twitter. I can’t say “all a twitter” any more, can I? I should put that on Twitter. The website, Twitter.

I am not fully awake yet and should not be commenting on people’s blogs yet.

Besides the task of shoveling so much snow, it looks like fun making tunnels and angels!
