Tis the Season: First Snow

Our home sits on a small hill. It was an ideal location when an uninvited visitor by the name of Sandy blew through, leaving water and mayhem in her wake. We experienced arctic cold in our living room for 8 long days and 7 even-longer nights, but we stayed dry, very dry on our little hill. An epic water event … like a tsunami … would have to roar through our suburb before our home would flood. And God? Please know that I am not asking for a tsunami to visit Montclair, NJ.

Unfortunately, living on our little hill is not ideal when the snow flies.

Did I mention that it’s snowing?

Is it snowing at your house?

My hilly driveway gets treacherous; if I don’t shovel it, I slip up and down the driveway.  Since we have about 2″ of snow so far I busted out my snow shovel.  My choice is simple: shovel early and often or fall on my a** every time I leave the house. And having recently celebrated yet-another multiple-of-5 birthday I figure I’m getting a little old for that.

    How have you already gotten snow?! We have gotten nothing! I thought I lived in the tundra?

  2. Tell me about it. I figure that when we relocate the miserable friggin’ weather will follow me. I can see the headline now: “Freak Snowstorm Follows Disgruntled Jersey Woman Everywhere”
