Blogging is really about sharing your personal opinion. Let’s face it, not all blogs are good. And of those that are good they are not good all the time. You need to be persistent and original. So I decided to just write about what I’m thinking about today.
It snowed again. In Maine this year it has snowed in December about every other day.
When I was growing up as a kid I loved the snow, mostly because there was no school. As I got older I grew a bit more romantic about it. Some of my favorite memories are when I was in a great relationship with a new guy, and for some reason it was usually in the winter. There is something fantastically romantic about snow and love. Sitting by a fire, sipping on cognac or champagne, just enjoying each other, saying so little yet sharing so much.
For all of those years I was in Connecticut. From about the time I started driving I was lucky enough to have a garage. Even when I moved out of my parents house and started renting, with few exceptions I always had a garage. So I never cared about how much it snowed. I didn’t have to clean off my car unless it happened to snow for a bit while I was out and about.
Now, I live in Maine. I moved here 7 years ago and I think I have chipped the ice off my car and cleared untold inches of snow off of my car about 600 times, by my calculations, and frankly I’m getting sick of it. I live in an apartment building now, and there is nothing like getting woken up on a Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m. by the plow guy to come and move your car (or rather dig it out of a huge snow pile) so he can finish plowing the driveway. All you want to do is roll over and catch a few more Z’s.
So in conclusion, until I move to some new great place where I have a garage at my disposal, I officially don’t like the snow. And if I do move to a place with a garage, I’m going to damn well make sure I have a fireplace, too. Maybe that will help my love life.
Luckily I have my High Definiton TV with an antenna so I don’t have to pay my cable company. You can find out more at my other blog here: http://mainehdtv.blogspot.com
