Well, actually this photo has more color than it should if I want it to convey my frustration with this continued wintery weather. I should be riding motorcycles to work and doing all kinds of other fun Spring things, and I’m craving some green vegetation as well. Now I hear there’s a chance for another winter storm next weekend…well, that’s just fantastic.
Well, you know what? In that case, let’s make it a MONSTER. I’m talking Spring 1997. If we have to put up with this kind of meteorological nonsense, then let’s go all-in. I want ten feet of snow, delivered sideways. In fact, I dare Mother Nature (whom I don’t believe in) to hit me with your best shot. Yeah, that’s right…a Pat Benatar reference. Bring it.
(UPDATE): There will be no winter storm in the Bismarck-Mandan area. How do I know? Simple…I stretched the main belt in my snowblower last weekend, and had to spend a ridiculous amount to get new belts (one replacement, one spare) shipped here before the upcoming weekend and predicted storm. As soon as I did that, the forecast models began nudging the area of heaviest snow southward. If I just run out and by a sled we’ll be totally in the clear. Maybe I should set up a GoFundMe…?
