It snowed last night, and all day today!
It was only last week, that the last remnants of our pre-Christmas 13" snow storm, finally melted. Yes, my dears! It took that long! It's been very cold so far this winter, as my $304.00 December electric bill can attest to. I live on the north slope of a hill, so the sun's rays have a limited effect on melting snow, and warming of the house.
There was a brief respite last week, as temperatures soared into the lower to mid 60's!
Practically tropical! But it was not to last. It started to snow again today, in the wee hours of the morning, as another nor'easter riding up the east coast, collided with an Alberta Clipper, coming out of Canada. For those of you who don't know what an Alberta Clipper is, its a blast of cold arctic air, coming south out of northwestern Canada. That along with a nor'easter riding up the east coast, is always the absolute worst winter scenario, for the mid Atlantic region! The snowfall continued throughout the day, and into tonight. It finally stopped a few hours ago, and the result was another 10-11' of snow. Better than an ice storm for sure, but still a major pain in the you know what!
The pictures you are seeing, were taken from my back door, out onto my rear deck. Tomorrow I will have to grab the snow shovel you see resting against the deck railing, and dig myself out once again. My neighbor will no doubt be out with his tractor and plow tomorrow, clearing the road, and dragging even more gravel onto the grass, that I will have to run a lawnmower over, come spring. I better start looking for shin guards and body armor, not to mention a new lawn mower blade! I will have to see if my truck can pull itself through the 10 inches of snow out of my driveway, onto the road out front. The truck is a 4 four wheel drive, so it should be able to make it up the hill in 4 wheel low, as long as the tires can get the requisite traction.
Nothing much to do tonight, so I watched The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly on TV. Oddly enough for someone of my age, it was the very first time that I have ever watched that entire movie, from front to back. I know it must sound strange, since that movie was released in 1966, the year I graduated from high school, but its true! Now I know why it has been such a classic. While a little rough around the edges by today's standards, it is still an excellent western! No wonder it propelled Clint Eastwood into stardom, and Eli Wallach didn't do such a bad job either. Why did it take me so long to discover this cinematic work of art?
There has been a theme running throughout the trans-gender blogs recently, so I might as well throw my two cents worth in.
It seems that some of us don't realize, or at least have forgotten, that all of us are cross dressers, until we have had Genital Reconstruction Surgery. Only then can we separate ourselves from all of our other trans-sisters, and even then, only if we are totally selfish and heartless. Face it sisters. Like it or not, we were all born as boys! To turn our backs on those who for whatever reason cannot, or will not transition completely, is to turn our back on ourselves. As I have already replied to a couple of girls here, our rainbow needs all of its colors, if it is to survive. I love you all, regardless of what's between your legs, or where you will ultimately end up.
