Well, a month ago I claimed it wouldn’t snow this winter because of the new (used) snow blower in the garage. That was just me being cheeky — but now you’ve got to wonder.
Here we are, a month later, and there still hasn’t been enough snow to use the damn thing. This has caused me to do something I haven’t done since elementary school: wish for an epic snowfall.
Every day I check the forecast with the perverse hope that we’ll get dumped on. Even my prayers have not worked. They go something like this:
Please, God, send us a hellish storm that incapacitates the area. We are an ungrateful people and deserve to be punished with at least 18 inches of snow, preferably falling during the overnight hours…
Not sure if that will work, but just to cover all bases, I’m following the example of Park City Mountain Resort and seeking members of the Ute indian tribe to help bring some snow. I’ll let you know if anyone replies to the ad.
