Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

I wasn’t very happy when groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on Feb 2nd and declared 6 more weeks of winter. This has been a long, snowy winter. I’m glad that we won’t have another drought this summer, but I’m tired of shoveling and having to scrape my car off every other morning. Watching the weather forecast for today we once again are suppose to get another snow storm that is scheduled to hit us during the heart of our commute home from work. This of course means more slide offs and traffic delays and it will now take me closer to an hour to get home than the usual 30 minute traffic headache. I know bitch, bitch, moan, moan.

When I do get home, however, I will have the privilege of watching my 9 month old tri-color sheltie, Bella have an absolute field day in the snow. She loves the snow. She will make it her job tonight as we’re shoveling to make sure she is at the end of wherever we will be throwing the snow. She’s a little like a wide receiver football player trying to get their quarterbacks attention that they’re open for the pass. Sort of like Randy Moss waiting to receive a pass from Tom Brady (sorry New England, although my husband was rooting for his home town of New York). Little Bella will run out in the yard jump up and down (Bella: I’m open, I’m open throw it over here!) and wait for us to toss a shovel full of snow toward her. She’ll then snort it up her nose, sneeze, shake her head and then give me a look like, “Wow, what was that! do it again, do it again!” Her exuberance in the snow makes the act of shoveling less of a chore. If it doesn’t snow the rest of the year I can certainly live with that, however, I do get a chill (and not from the cold) of seeing that little twinkle in Bella’s eyes when she knows she gets to go outside and help Mama and Daddy shovel, so . . . let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Sorry folks, but with this post I have not mastered the art of how to insert a photo. I will try to get one of Bella and her best friend (snow) so you can see what true joy is. Thanks Bella you’ve made a long hard winter bearable.

On this day..
