It's like a holiday. Everyone off work and school for Groundhog Day. I could get used to this.
I don't know about this blizzard. It blew a lot and left drifts at night, but was all but over before we turned on the set for several more hours of wall to wall coverage this morning. Racine and Kenosha got hit, so if the constant weather reporting did anything it made us glad we weren't there.
After clearing the front walk I went on a three hour tour, a three hour tour. With no goal in mind when I started, just takin' the blog for a walk so to speak, I ended up downtown just to see which cafe' or store was open. The weather wasn't getting rough, it was improving. Depending on when the groundhog emerged, good chance he saw his shadow.
It felt like I walked 5 miles but was probably less than half that. Walking in full gear through knee high snow is like that. It's notable that many neighbors exchanged friendly greetings with me even though they just got dumped on. The sun was out, it wasn't snowing, many had snowblowers but even the shovelers were getting fresh air and exercise without paying for a gym.
There's much to be thankful for. If you shoveled your walk, helped a neighbor, kept us safe, helped keep a crucial business operating, plowed the streets. . . my thanks to you.
