The White Stuff Falls

November 29th, 2014 at Sat, 29th, 2014 at 10:43 am by Rick Bergum

Well, the snow has arrived.  Maybe not much, but it is here.

I remember as a kid loving the snow.  One year, when I was around eight years old or so, I remember the snow in Covington being two to three feet deep.  It was one of those rare occurrences when the snow came down heavy, and as kids we loved it.  Of course, I wasn’t an adult so I didn’t have to drive in it or go to work.  For me it was just a day(s) off from school and lots of outside playtime!

There have been other times in Covington when the snow was more than just a skiff or a few inches, but those times are few and far between.  I enjoy the snow, but as I learned when I got older, the snow isn’t so fun when you have to drive to work in it or just plain drive in it.  Because there are so many hills and valleys here, you just can’t take off and go wherever you want.  Unlike states such as Montana that are fairly flat, the hills and valleys wreak havoc on driving in inclement weather.  But, it’s not very often and it usually lasts only a few days or less.

So, since it’s the weekend, I say let the white stuff fall.  Have fun and get back on track come Monday morning.  Of course, if it snows more Monday, it might mean a day off of work!

I've lived in Covington for over 50 years. I've seen a lot of changes in Covington during that time and hope to share a few of these periodically. I enjoy writing and also write a blog for those in the custodial field. (The link is included on this blog page.) You can also find information on Facebook under the name Custodial Soupçon.
