I don't like winter and was not happy to see the snow today but had a good chuckle when a carrier sent me an email with the below picture. Enjoy!

My 2 year old's eyes lit up when I opened his blinds this morning.
Matthew: Snow! I go play outside Daddy?
Me: No, Dad's going to work and you're going to daycare.

Last year he would shovel the snow from the driveway into the garage. A for effort though, perhaps this year he'll learn where to put the snow he's painstakingly got on to his little blue plastic shovel.

Keep well,
Mike

Diary of a Demented Snow Sniveler

December 8- 6:00 PM
It started to snow. The first snow of the season and
the wife and I took our cocktails and sat for hours by
the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down
from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses print. So
romantic we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow!

December 9
We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow
covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic
sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the whole
world? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had!

Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a
boy again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks.
This afternoon the snowplow came along and covered
up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got
to shovel again. What a perfect life!

December 12
The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a
disappointment! My neighbor tells me not to worry-
We'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on
Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much
snow by the end of winter, that I'll never want to see
snow again. I don't think that's possible. Bob is such
a nice man, I'm glad he's our neighbor.

December 14
Snow, lovely snow! 8 inches last night. The
temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything
sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed
up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the
life! The snowplow came back this afternoon and
buried everything again. I didn't realize I would have to
do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in
shape this way. I wish I wouldn't huff and puff so.

December 15
20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4
Blazer. Bought snow tires for the wife's car and 2
extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants
a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think
that's silly. We aren't in Alaska, after all.

December 16
Ice storm this morning. Fell on my ass on the ice in
the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like hell. The
Wife laughed for an hour, which I think was very
cruel.

December 17
Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go
anywhere. Electricity was off for 5 hours. I had to
pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but
stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I
should've bought a wood stove, but won't admit it to
her. God I hate it when she's right. I can't believe
I'm freezing to death in my own livingroom.

December 20
Electricity is back on, but had another 14 inches of
the damn stuff last night. More shoveling! Took all
day. The damn snowplow came by twice.
Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said
they're too busy playing hockey. I think they're
lying.
Called the only hardware store around to see about
buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have
another shipment in March. I think they're lying. Bob
says I have to shovel or the city will have it done
and bill me. I think he's lying.

December 22
Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more
inches of the white **** fell today, and it's so cold,
it probably won't melt till August. Took me 45 minutes
to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I
had to piss. By the time I got undressed, pissed and
dressed again. I was too tired to shovel. Tried to
hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of
the winter, but he says he's too busy. I think the
******* is lying.

December 23
Only 2 inches of snow today. And it warmed up to 0.
The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house
this morning. What is she, nuts?!!
Why didn't she tell me to do that a month ago? She
says she did, but I think she's lying.

December 24
6 inches - Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke
the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I
ever catch the son of a ***** who drives that snow
plow, I'll drag him through the snow by his balls and
beat him to death with my broken shovel. I know he
hides around the corner and waits for me to finish
shoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100
miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just
been! Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas
Carols with her and open our presents, but I was too
busy watching for the damn snowplow.

December 25
Merry f---ing Christmas! 20 more inches of the damn
slop tonight - Snowed in .
The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. God, I hate
the snow!
Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation
and I hit him over the head with my shovel. The wife
says I have a bad attitude. I think she's a fricking
idiot. If I have to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" one
more time, I'm going to stuff her into the microwave.

December 26
Still snowed in. Why the hell did I ever move here? It
was all HER idea.
She's really getting on my nerves.

December 27
Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze;
plumber came after 14 hours of waiting for him, he
only charged me $1,400 to replace all my pipes.

December 28
Warmed up to above -20. Still snowed in. The ***** is
driving me crazy!!!

December 29
10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or
it could cave in. That's the silliest thing I ever heard.
How dumb does he think I am?

December 30
Roof caved in. I beat up the snow plow driver, and now
he is suing me for a million dollars, not only for the
beating I gave him, but also for trying to shove the
broken snow shovel up his ass. The wife went home to
her mother.
Nine more inches predicted.

December 31
I set fire to what's left of the house. No more
shoveling.

January 8
Feel so good. I just love those little white pills
they keep giving me. Why am I tied to the bed?

Why you cheap bugger !!!

You could at least buy him a little quad with a snow plow on it ... LOL

If only that were in the budget. :)
I'm trying to keep the 'stuff' he plays with simple except for the 'HiPad' as he calls it.
He rides his plastic Harley trike in the house all year round, his feet are so close to reaching the pedals properly.
I got his shovel at Canadian Tire for under $10, seems to do the trick for now, until he gets older and becomes bored of it. The joys!

Keep well sir,
Mike

Wait until he's 30, and you get a midnight call that he's been in a wreck in one of your trucks ... That'll take 10 years off your life in less than a second !!!

Yes, that really happened Halloween night. Six foot thick maple tree blew over in that high wind, in the dark of the night, on the road in front of him. He managed to run into the top of the tree and not the trunk thank God.
Kid's okay ... truck not so good ... LOL

Mike,

Happy to hear the kid is ok and sorry to hear about your truck. I can't imagine what receiving that call was like for you but I take it you have a couple extra gray hairs now!! My percentage of gray I find is increasing lately, I did just celebrate my 5th wedding anniversary. :) She's not a member here thankfully! lol

I've not had very many 'scares' yet but know they are coming. As long as in the distant future he calls me to pick him up whenever and wherever he needs instead of getting into a car with someone who is questionable to drive. Better yet I'll teach him to take the keys from that questionable person and I'll pick them up and drive them both home.

Keep well,
Mike

My hair doesn't turn grey ... it just falls out ... LOL

Always told my kids, and practiced this as well, no matter where you are, or what time of day or night, or what situation you are in, you call me to come get you ... no questions asked. If the situation is something that needs to be discussed, not a word will be mentioned for 48 hours.
It worked well, and the discussions, after the 48 hours, were usually pretty quick ... "Yea, I f**ked up. Sorry about that. Won't happen again.", and they were good to their word.

I'm absorbing all the good advice I can to best prepare for the inevitable. Thanks Mike.

I think I'm thinning in the front a little. It is my birthday but I didn't realize there would be drastic changes as I began my 43rd year on the actual day of! :)

Keep well sir,
Mike
Happy Birthday sir! Having raised two sons I am thankful to report, all of us survived unscathed. Eldest graduated last year with a business degree youngest just received diploma from MRU for outdoor leadership! Two degrees, I relieved mother :)
