So, it’s 10:18 a.m. EST and I’m staring at the computer screen. I’m thinking about anything except writing my story.
Steve: What’s the current snowfall average to date?
Ryan: You want the average to today?
S: That’s what I’ve done before.
R: To today?
S: Well I’ve done it to the end of the month.
R: Oh, OK I can just add up the average snowfall from each month through February. [starts punching numbers in calculator]. It’s 150.
And it goes on like this for a few more minutes. sigh
Woke up this morning and there were three inches of snow on the ground. I’m late so I rush to clear the damp white stuff off my car just to slowly slide into traffic on U.S. 41. Thank goodness people could slowly swerve around me until I could move.
There’s more snow expected for tonight when I need to drive for three hours to Ontonagon to talk to U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Menominee. Pray I return in one piece.
Minnesota Public Radio is starting their winter pledge campaign. Program interruptions and delays. Hoo-ray! (At least it’s not the horrific self-help specials PBS airs.)
