Snow leaves its natural habitat
Posted January 4, 2009on:
Last night at dinner (roast beast, rare, rice, green beans):
Me: [staring out window] This is fucking ridiculous. Do you know how long its been snowing?
Darren: All day?!!!
Me: [glaring dagger] Two fucking weeks. At least.
Darren: [nodding] You’re right. Its a long time to be snowing.
Tonight I intercepted a tweet from Linda saying its snowing in Seattle. So I checked the window again (its dark so I had to look at the street light).
Fuck. MORE snow after it had started melting:
Me: [going downstairs] Its snowing again!
Darren: Are you sure it isn’t raining?
Me: Yeah, there were these big, white flaky things falling down.
Darren: Yeah, rain doesn’t usually fall like that.
And people, I am DONE. I live in Vancouver for a reason: I don’t like snow. Sure it can snow a couple of days a year, but TWO FUCKING WEEKS?
Yes, we’re divas about the weather here. But this is why we live here: snow belongs on the mountains to make them all pretty. And it should stay there. Sea to ski and all that. The mountains are snow’s natural habitat.
The road outside my house is just about impassible. I don’t really expect it to be ploughed, but could you send a salt truck down or something? Or at least tow the cars that are parked IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET?
Weather.ca says we’re supposed to get 20 cm (8 inches) tonight.
