Even though we dodged a bullet last week with that phantom storm that never happened, I've had enough of winter. As far as snow is concerned, we have been lucky (or unlucky if you ask my DPW and snow plowing friends). I'm tired of the high heating bills and the fact that my feet haven't been warm since September. I keep losing my stupid gloves. I'm running out of snow melt and having to leave the warmth of my living room to walk the dog pretty much makes me whimper. I have had it with trying to do that little balancing act on the sheets of ice that cover some peoples sidewalks - who didn't shovel off the snow when it was shovel-able - it has now transformed into a treacherous walk from hell (frozen over, of course).
