It Snowed, lots


Central Baptist Church, covered in snowI am not a “snow guy.” It’s wet, cold, and stings when someone throws it at my face 1.

Plus, it has to be removed. Stupid, “make walking safe for pedestrians,” sidewalks.

Typically, I just use a snowblower to remove most of the snow. This reduces my hostile feelings toward the white stuff significantly, and I’ll often continue to run the blower to help out my neighbors. Snowblowing isn’t enjoyable, but at least it feels effective.

And then you get snow like the Blizzard of 2016 2. I could not get the snow blower to cooperate with this sticky white stuff. It wasn’t getting clogged in the vent, which is annoying but workable. Instead the machine would, no matter how slowly I progressed, decide is was much more enjoyable to ride on top of the snow.

After partly clearing the Church sidewalk I hit a massive snow drift and turned around. I attempted to clear the parsonage sidewalk, but only got by the front of the house when I hit another tall drift and put the thing away. My family came out to help me shovel of the remaining walk and our driveway. Shoveling through a snow drift, mixed with snow moved by plows, which is as tall as you are is no fun.

I really do not like snow.

At least it makes the Church look beautiful.

  1. The act of throwing snow back at someone who throws a snowball at me is, perhaps, the only thing I like about snow. 
  2. Also known as Winter Storm Jonas. Does anyone know when we starting naming winter storms?

    The Weather Channel began naming winter storms in 2012.
