    good 'ole winter weather

    Got check my tow ropes and winch cable over today. Make sure I've got plenty of road flares and such. Supposed to have freezing drizzle and snow here on Sunday, so I get to spend the day playing in it, pulling folks out of ditches.

    Yep, winter is just around the corner. But as I have gotten older, I have learned to appreciate all four seasons for what they are. Makes life more interesting I think.

    My parents took me along to Jamaica once for Christmas. It was a good vacation, but it wasn't Christmas. Makes me wonder why someone would want to live in a place with no snow. And all that fresh green and floeers of spring. Fall's trees on fire... I agree. Life with no seasons isn't a real life. I'd be bored to death.

    Of course I'd reconsider if my rich uncle wanted to give me a private island and the sailboat to go with it :D

    I wouldn't want to be part of any organization that would allow me to be a member.

    I was raised in Wisconsin and lived over 2/3 of my life in ILLannoyed. While I like snow, at some point in your later years, snow becomes more of a detriment. As I sit outside in the warm sun of Arizona or later sit outside in the warm evening and watch the stars before going to bed, I feel so sorry for my friends stuck in the snow, trying to start their snow blower, or slowly digging out their driveway. Sometimes I notice a smile spreading across my face as I think about them. I know, my bad!

    I wanted to buy a tow rope because I have the front hooks on my Chevrolet. But I don't want to beat on my truck its old. So ill mind my own business. Too many different people moved into this town. They should just build a police station at the scotrun exit. They are always finding coke and AK's at that exit. Few days ago it was twelve pounds of pot.

    I live in the Northeast and we're expecting our first snowfall in the morning - just grassy areas. However, despite the cold, shoveling, energy-sucking winter... i still love it! I grew up in Southern California where there are no seasons. Having Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall as distinct seasons is a joy to me. About the time I've had enough of a season, a new one comes along!

    I'm looking forward to winter - I've prepped for it and will enjoy it!
