Snow joke

Hello, Mother Nature?

It’s me again, Kathryn Jane.

Just a quick question. Do you have another rooky at the helm?  I mean since the idiot who sent us a snow storm a couple of weeks ago?

Um, may I suggest you set your margarita aside, peek out from under your beach umbrella and check your emails?

There are probably a bunch from the Vancouver area, you know, that special corner of Canada affectionately known as the wet-coast. (Pssst that’s because we get lots of rain, but almost none of the cold white stuff.)

Problem? you ask.


On the odd occasion you send us snow, we run out and buy shovels and salt, scurry to get snow tires on our cars, and hope for snow days declared at school and work if we hit, maybe 2 to 4 inches of white stuff on the roads.001

That’s 2 or 4 inches — better known as 5 to 10 centimeters in Canadian.

So here’s the deal. The snow outside my door is now about a foot deep, 004

and in areas near by, it’s up to three feet deep and still coming down. Hard and heavy.

Trees are breaking under the weight and taking down power lines, people are getting hurt. It’s not funny anymore. ha ha.

But it’s so pretty, you say…022

True. But still, I have just two words for you…

Stop it!

Well, make that three.

Stop it, please!

In the meantime, I’ll be running out of birdseed soon, so the birds would like you to please, put a rush on that. 013007






Kathryn Jane, who is usually quite patient, but you’re pushing me… 🙂

      Be careful what you wish for! …and hugs back 😀


  2. I love this and can completely relate. Still getting used to the snow in Colorado but it hasn’t been that deep yet. (I’ll send you some bird seed. I keep putting it out and the wind blows it away).

      ha ha, at least we didn’t get a bunch of wind with this storm 🙂 and now the rain is back, so I’m a happy camper!


  3. Lol, either we have to smile or else we’ll cry! DH has a nightly drive to work over the treacherous Malahat (a mountain pass) and our poor bamboo is weeping under the weight of six inches of snowballs. This is when RV life is NOT all it’s cracked up to be 🙂

      Oh boy, the Malahat, not fun. May lady luck always travel with him! And yes, the RV life could be a trial in this kind of weather for sure. Hang in there, it will get better 😀

      Thank you Diana!


  5. Thanks for the spot of humor. Here in Ontario, we’re battling freezing rain. Mother Nature is getting quite the workout this year. 🙂

    So funny, Kathryn. Well, not funny that you’re so snowed in, Poor birds. But cleverly written. I did chuckle. We’re having just the opposite problem in Texas. February is usually one of our coldest months. We hit 88 the last two days. Green stuff is starting to pop heads through the earth. Now, we’re cooling off for two days and it will be in the 40s, but then back up to record highs. Just a nutty winter. Take care and stay warm. I’ll try to stay cool. 🙂

    Thanks, Marsha!
    Most of our snow has been washed away by the wonderful rain, so we could be seeing some crocuses and cherry blossoms soon 🙂 …goodness, try to stay cool in that wacky winter heat!
