Snow, Ice and FrogsFebruary 10th, 2012 at Fri, 10th, 2012 at 8:56 pm by Rick Bergum
So, what did you think of the snow and ice we had in January? Quite something huh? It’s pretty unusual to get that kind of weather around here.
I remember as a kid getting some deep snow occasionally. In fact, I remember one winter when we had icicles hanging off the house that were up to two feet long. I think my mom still has pictures somewhere of that. That was quite a winter. Of course, as a kid I thought it was great. No school. Playing in the snow. No big deal. But now that I’m older, not so much fun. I still had to go to work last month despite the snow. And for most of the week I shoveled snow at work to clear walkways and stairs. My back told me I was definitely NOT 18 anymore.
We’re still not out of winter yet, so we’ll see if the weather brings us anymore odd storms. Since the bullfrogs have started to croak now, I’m hoping they know more about the weather than I and that we are done with the ice and snow for this year. Time will tell.
