Dear Mama Nat (aka Mother Nature)--
I get it. You tried. You made the newscasters act like things were about to get crazy, that roads were about to be slick, and that we should all stock up for the weekend.
Then you came for a brief visit overnight and were gone by early morning. On a Saturday. No chance for an early-out/late-in for work.
Now, I'm a reasonable person. I don't expect you to deliver another winter like last year every year (though I wouldn't complain--I enjoyed it all until about mid-March when it got a little tiresome).
But you can do better than this. I'll tell you what I'd like over the next few days. I'd like the mailman to get here with either my yarn or my new knitting needles so I can get on with the stitchery. And then I'd like you to do something with enough vigor to get me out of work on Tuesday.
And then you can go back to relaxing, okay? I just want one good storm. Deal?
Thanks in advance,
