Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

How appropriate that this week's Theme Thursday topic is SNOW! The snow is currently blowing off of Lake Erie into Buffalo and then on into Rochester. Oh, boy! Another season of daily drudgery is upon us.

Now, don't get me wrong... I love snow. Especially when it's new and pristine and I don't have to go out in it. I used to even enjoy cross country skiing back before I lost my ACL and MCL. But after awhile it gets kinda old. Especially when it turns to slush and then refreezes and the snowplows start piling dirty snow up into steep banks along the sidewalks. Here in Rochester, we actually have sidewalk plows in addition to street plows. Both are great additions until they leave the rock hard ice barriers across your driveway that are near impossible to shovel away.

But this year's snow season in particular is looming over me like icy death. And no, I'm not exaggerating. I mean after all...

Have you ever tried shoveling snow on crutches?

I rest my case!


Now, please stop listening to my bitch fest and go over and visit the other bloggers participating in Theme Thursday. You'll be glad you did!

Shovelling snow is bad enough...but on crutches?!! Thanks for introducing me to Theme Thursday; it's lots of fun.

Betsy said...

Oh, that lake-effect snow! I bet you are getting a bunch. No, don't shovel on crutches! haha...stay inside.

willow said...

Sidewalk plows? Are you serious? Actually, that's a super idea. Crutches are a perfect excuse. Milk it for all ya got!! (hope you're feeling better)

Bird Shit and Baby Caca said...

Please keep your snow there! I'm not ready for it yet!

idifficult said...

Get a blowtorch and a knife and make ice sculpture . Could be fun...

Santa Claus said...

HO HO HO! I never shovel, I let the elves do it!

ReformingGeek said...

I'm sending you an 18-year-old hottie to take care of the shoveling.

Wait. He has some work to do here, first.

;-)

The only snow I want to see is in a snow globe. I'm a typical California weather weenie.

Phillipia said...

Where's Vlad?

Or is my son not the only one that disappears when there is snow to shovel?

Stay safe and warm;- the snow will melt and then there will be no need to shovel:)

rxBambi said...

I love snow in December. Even january. However by february i'm ready for it to be OUTTA HERE. And yeah, Vlad. Make him do it. You brought him into this world, you can take him out.

Nanodance said...

I will send my 18 year old over. (After he shovels my walk.) Edmund! Where are you? Funny. He was just here a minute ago.

KaLynn said...

Oh man! Stay put! I'm glad I live where we just get snow for 20 minutes and it is gone. Literally. I do not envy you at all and especially on crutches! =0(

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

Wow, given where you live I'm surprised you can say anything postive about snow. I hear you get feet a year. We usually get inches, maybe adding up to a couple of feet total if it didn't melt a day or two after falling. I'd love to have a white Christmas this year......

Tom said...

ouch! probably not much fun mowing the lawn either...stay off the snow with those crutches, and let's hope winter goes by quick! Happy TT

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

is that regular Dr Pepper or the Dublin Dr Pepper?

The Peach Tart said...

This is when I'm happy I live in the South. Take care of yourself.

ellen abbott said...

I'm trying to catch up on some of my followers. Wow, A tumble down the stairs! Hope the knee heals soon.

And what is up with all this crazy snow? We got 3 - 5 inches here last week. In south Texas. Now that's just wrong!

nonamedufus said...

You need skis on the bottoms of those crutches. That'd be great fun!

Moooooog35 said...

Hey CatLady...

Your questions have been answered today on Mental Poo.

You're welcome.

I mean, 'thank you.'

Summer said...

I'm freezing my ass off here, and NO snow anywhere to be found.

...mmm... said...

If I were where you are I would no doubt feel the same. Here along the CO front range it doesn;t always snow but when it does it is a dry snow--no real slush or wetness or even ice to scrap MOST of the time! It's powder perfect. Although cold, we are a mile hihg so the sun beats down making us feel warmer. Still, Rochester is so beautiful in the snow, don;t you think but the drudgery of it, yes, I can see that.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Ugh! I can't even imagine trying to dig through snow on crutches!

danielpagano said...

God helps those who help themselves........................................

gayle said...

I wouldn't want to shovel snow with out crutches!! Be careful!

Ronda Laveen said...

No, I've never tried shoveling snow on crutches. Can't even imagine. I'd be praying for sunny skies. Heal fast, hear?

frigginloon said...

Well Cat Lady, the Loon will be waiting to see if the driveway hates you as much as the house. it all is sounding rather Stephen Kingish over your way :)

Dreamhaven said...

Oh my, many wishes and prayers for continued healing.
