|Not that kind of Tab|
I am still trying very hard to get the e-mail subscription box to work so that people can be notified by e-mail (if they want) when there is a new post. It's not working because FeedBurner is conspiring against me and trying to make me look stupid. (No, I really don't know what FeedBurner is either, but we need to make friends with it).
Living where I do, outside of Philadelphia, it's cold in the winter. It sometimes snows. Despite the fact it is always this way, a lot of people get themselves into a big uproar every time it's very cold or it snows. These are the same people who empty out the supermarket in preparation. I am not sure in preparation for what. Do they think they will be magically transported into the frozen tundra somewhere never to be heard from again?
The longest anyone around here has every truly been snowed in is for like one day. And, the truth is, most of us feel compelled to shovel out immediately and drive somewhere, just to prove we can. You should know my husband is not one of these people and is beyond troubled by me when I suggest going out to eat or to a movie during snow "events" (sometimes called snow "emergencies" by city officials). He's a big rule follower.
Despite my understanding of the climate in which I live, I am going to have to complain to Mother Nature a little bit. I get it - you control the weather. You can make it as cold as you want. But, honestly, once it's cold enough to snow, do we need it any colder? What is the point of 7 degrees? Or 12 degrees? That is really just showboating. It's not pleasant for anyone.

much snow, let's try to find the person who is still
throwing their soda cans out with the regular trash.
And people from the south, don't write me telling me I am picking on you. I did not make up the Atlanta weather. I am merely putting together pieces of the puzzle.
* It's cold in the winter.
* There is snow in the winter.
* I am blaming the needlessly cold weather on someone with a bad attitude.
