21 Inches

Monday, December 8th, 2003 · 3 Comments

The Saratogian: “SARATOGA SPRINGS — As the area digs out of the weekend’s snow and begins the work week, Saratoga Springs Public Works Commissioner Tom McTygue lifted the city’s 12-hour snow emergency at noon Sunday and said the roads were fine.”

Here in sunny California, it’s hard to imagine that in a matter of weeks Jen and I will be in the heart of our new city, where 21 inches of snow fell over the weekend. Good thing I love the snow and have an all-wheel drive car.

Some people call me crazy, but I’m actually looking forward to this. I love snow and think it’s exciting. And yes, I’m even looking forward to shoveling it. Living in San Francisco is almost too easy in that sense. The hardest we have to work to combat the weather here is by opening an umbrella. I welcome a good challenge like nearly two feet of snow.

    It’ll be perfect if you’re into cross-country skiing. You could ski to work, the store, and anywhere else if you get enough snow.

    I’d like to start taking bets on how long it’ll take the A_ndersons come back to Cali.

    that’s kinda like when i went to visit my grandparents-in-law up in palo alto last thanksgiving weekend, and i spent an afternoon raking the leaves in their backyard – and had fun doing it! we don’t have big trees that shed a ton of leaves in our backyard at our home in san diego. =P
