Hello, Mother Nature?
It’s me again, Kathryn Jane.
Just a quick question. Do you have another rooky at the helm? I mean since the idiot who sent us a snow storm a couple of weeks ago?
Um, may I suggest you set your margarita aside, peek out from under your beach umbrella and check your emails?
There are probably a bunch from the Vancouver area, you know, that special corner of Canada affectionately known as the wet-coast. (Pssst that’s because we get lots of rain, but almost none of the cold white stuff.)
Problem? you ask.
On the odd occasion you send us snow, we run out and buy shovels and salt, scurry to get snow tires on our cars, and hope for snow days declared at school and work if we hit, maybe 2 to 4 inches of white stuff on the roads.
That’s 2 or 4 inches — better known as 5 to 10 centimeters in Canadian.
So here’s the deal. The snow outside my door is now about a foot deep,
and in areas near by, it’s up to three feet deep and still coming down. Hard and heavy.
Trees are breaking under the weight and taking down power lines, people are getting hurt. It’s not funny anymore. ha ha.
But it’s so pretty, you say…
True. But still, I have just two words for you…
Well, make that three.
Stop it, please!
In the meantime, I’ll be running out of birdseed soon, so the birds would like you to please, put a rush on that.
Kathryn Jane, who is usually quite patient, but you’re pushing me… 🙂
