If it snows another inch I’m going to lose my mind

Here’s the situation. In the Winter season last year I busted out my snowblower to do the driveway ONE time. This year I’ve done it over 20 times.

This morning I woke up to yet another massive snow storm. The wind is blowing the snow sideways and I’ve got another foot of snow in the yard.

Park City (not terribly far from me) has so much snow they don’t know what to do with it. They’re starting to load it into dump trucks and haul it to the city dump. There is so much snow up there you can barely see many house windows or doors except where the people have tunneled paths. The ski tourists up there are staying away from the local shops because they just can’t get to and from their hotels.

The city of Salt Lake and Park City have both gone over budget for 2008 on snow removal. There are 11 months left in the year and we’re over budget already.

The snow pack here is already at over 140% of what “normal” is, and there’s no sign of it stopping any time soon. I guess there’ll be plenty of water for the courses so they’ll be nice and green (if the current ice age thaws).

I do ski and snowboard but not very often. I doubt I’ll snowboard again though because I always end up injured somehow. So it’s not like I “take advantage” of the snow. I really don’t like the cold, being wet or having to wear tons of gear to stay warm.

More than ever I really want to move from here to where it is warm and I can golf year round.

UPDATE: 12 hours later… I just got back from a Super Bowl party and guess what? It started snowing again… UGH!

  1. Wow ! It’s gonna be in the 60’s here in Kentucky this week, so forgive us for not knowing what snow is 😉

    We had some snow once, but we didn’t like it, so we just don’t do that anymore.
