So Far, I Am Not Impressed...
There are certain perks that come with living along the lake. Sure, we can get the dreaded lake-effect snow that, in the past, has dumped a foot and a half on my house while my brother, who lives around ten miles to the West, got maybe an inch. But, the blizzard that rolled through last night did pretty much the exact opposite. What fell here was mostly rain and sleet, and with a 30-60 mph wind off the lake, everything tumbling out of the sky was blown way off the the West, away from me and in my twin brother's yard. I'm guessing, so far, he's got about a foot of snow over at his place, and I, on the other hand, only have about an inch or two of really heavy, wet slush.
Ha! I win again.
On the other hand, this storm did wreak some serious havoc in other parts of the country, and I'm hoping everyone out there fared well and managed to survive.
So, considering I didn't sleep very well due to rattling windows and the incessant roar of an angry Lake Michigan, my brain's a little mushy at the moment and thinking is not something I'm all that interested in doing. In fact, right now, I'm going to step outside to see if I can find my Sunday paper. Hopefully, the person delivering it managed to play the wind and threw it straight at my neighbor's house to get it to land on my porch.
Anyway, feel free to write in and share your Sunday. Did the storm effect you in any way? I know Promise is pretty much buried in Minnesota (sorry about that, by the way). Just don't try to make me think too hard. I really am trying to save my last functional brain cell in my head.
