Oh no, not again!
Sorry for my week long absence from blogging. It's been a very busy week that was once again interrupted by a 'snowpocolypse.'
That saw The Locomotive buried again - and forced me to set up a writing workshop in the basement as schleping to the Jersey Shore in three feet of snow isn't exactly a wise idea in a 4,400 lb rear wheel drive Lincoln.
Considering that we've been buried three times this year, it's also becoming more and more difficult to ignore the fact that Global Warming seems to be taking a vacation.
This tremendous snow has been quite an eye-opener for me. I've certainly burnt a few calories shoveling the white stuff and been quite entertained watching the carnage on TV. Every morning, as thousands of employees call in for a 'snow day,' our local news network, News 12 New Jersey, interviews the few reckless fools who did venture out during the whiteout - and invariably, it's for a cup of coffee!
I find it ironic that nobody ignores the warnings not to travel when it involves going to work or school, but got forbid 50mph winds and three feet of snow gets between them and their grande venti mochachoca chai latte with skimmed milk!!
Ironically, the only thing we didn't have in the house when the snow hit was coffee. Instead of braving the weather, though, I just drank green tea instead.
