Late edition – Contrite Thursday…
I did it, and I’m SO sorry.
I admit it; I caused that ugly snow-mess on Tuesday morning.
You know: trees and utility lines down, power out, traffic signals dead and everybody driving like cowboys late for the rodeo.
Let me point out that others helped me; I know I wasn’t the only one.
But, see – I jinxed us.
I collected our three snow shovels and the ice chopper I got to replace the one that the last awful storm killed.
Remember that bullet-proof ice foam that coated our world like a glazed donut?
Well, I collected the replacement ice chopper and all three snow shovels, and I shoved them into our toolshed. And I boxed up our snow boots and clamp-on ice creepers and hauled them up into the attic.
I’lll keep the boots by the door, the snow and ice removal tools on the front porch – always, year round.
And really, I’m sorry.
