Is it too much work to get rid of? Not really, I spend more time mowing grass each week than shoveling or plowing.
Is it ugly? Actually, it is quite beautiful.
Is it boring? No, a good storm is exciting.
What is the problem with snow?
I think the problem with snow is that it just gets in the way. You have to worry about extra clothes, slipping, slush, shoveling roofs, tough driving, tracking ice into the house. You spend so much time working around it, you cannot focus on those things which are more important (or should be more important).
Case in point, March 7th. This past week, we had a whopper of a storm. I focused on shoveling, telecons, cancelled flights, rebooking flights, more shoveling, repacking, emails, etc.
But I missed it. It was 5 years ago on March 7th that my brother passed away. I completely missed it. I think about him everyday. I was even talking about him with coworkers today. But I missed it.
I don't feel guilty. Sometimes life (or snow) just gets in the way.
Anyway, we miss you Kevin!
(Kevin didn't really like snow, but he loved a good snowstorm!)
