FEELING SLIGHTLY GYPPED

We were under a winter weather advisory around these parts last night. Under these conditions, certain things must occur:
  1. Widespread panic must ensue, whereas, hoards of people run, literally, to the local markets to scavenge the remaining loaves of bread and gallons of milk on dusty shelves.
  2. Pre-treating of streets with something called MAGIC SALT begins, which does nothing but to make a mess of the outside of vehicles every where, not to mention the killing of all vegetation anywhere near the roadway.
  3. Endless beeps and blips occur throughout the evening prior to said winter weather advisory on all radios and televisions.

End result?

Rain! Stupid, cold rain, which will, no doubt, turn to ice and be a mess by the time I leave here this afternoon.

I'm sorry ... when is Spring coming again???
