Living in Buffalo, you get to hear all the stereotypes about our city, one in particular being the weather. I’ll admit, there is a history to the weather stereotype but it isn’t nearly as bad as they make it out to be. The past few years have been almost depressing with barely any snow and green holidays. I couldn’t live in a state that didn’t get snow.
This year was looking to be the same as last year with a lack of snow and unseasonably warm temperatures. Until last night. Finally we got trampled, as last night’s storm rampaged through the area dropping a foot of snow. It was pretty awesome. My wife doesn’t share my enthusiasm and thinks I’m crazy when I show genuine excitement at the opportunity to go shovel. I love it. As a child, you get to see the snow fall, you bundle up, and you go play outside. As an adult, unless you have a kid, you can’t just bundle up and go play in the snow (unless you want your neighbors to think that you’re an idiot). So you have to bundle up and go shovel, but I like it. I like getting blasted in the face with fresh powder. I like the fact that I have snow and ice collecting in my beard while my nose runs uncontrollably. Most of all, I love the feeling that you get when you finish shoveling, and you bundle up and sit on the couch with some hot chocolate or tea.
The Christmas season is over, so the blog posts will resume as regular from now on. I will get back to blogging about shirt ideas, food recipes, beer, gadgets, and action movies. My wife and I have started making new recipes for dinner at night. I plan on blogging them with pictures to share our success and our failures. Happy New Year!
