As I’ve said in a post from the other day, I have spent more than two weeks in Pennsylvania. I have seen most of the friends I wanted, and spent a lot of time with my kids. I watched my youngest graduate from college. I stayed with my sister and nephew. I dealt with that other four-letter word – COLD. And then it reared it’s ugly head. SNOW.
That’s right, it snowed. Most people who know me know that just about the only thing I hate more than the cold is snow. I woke up this morning, looked out the window and saw it. Immediately, I felt annoyance, anger and frustration. I was supposed to leave today to drive back home to Florida, and this rotten white stuff has delayed my departure. With some luck, the weather will hold and I will be able to drive away from Scranton tomorrow morning. Hopefully, I will get far enough into the ride that this nasty “white stuff” won’t be an issue.
This area is a wonderful place to live – when the weather is decent. I will even go so far to include the word cool. It’s this !@#$%^& stuff that reminds me why I moved to Florida. I can’t wait to get back there.
