Remember, love and miss Runzas! A coupla three weeks is certainly acceptable and I used n,s,e and w when I lived in the midwest. i've lived in CO so long that now directions are "towards the mountains or away from them - or mountains on the left or right'. We also don't use miles for distance; we use driving time.
The white stuff is melting and turning orange and blue. Happy for the Broncos but will always be a Husker! I remember alleys-had one in Neb City. Yes, "right away" means different things to different people, for sure.
We had the dreaded "up-slope" that dropped 17" of the white stuff here on Monday and Tuesday. Sadly, this town likes to wait for the sun to melt it all so I could be in til the snacks and/or beer runs out!
I often have wondered how weather forecasters keep their jobs. I have shoveled many inches of "20% chance of precip" more than once. When we first moved to CO the weather was nicer but it has slowly turned to NE weather - we never know what tomorrow will bring. It could be 7 or 70. "Thunder snow" is awesome. Hang in there, summer heat will be here soon. :/
:) I hear ya! Walmart is not cheaper. Loved Gordman's when I lived in Neb City and Lincoln! Used to be Richman-Goodman's. Don't know what happened to Richman. Cannot put up with screaming kids. Wouldn't let my kids scream-don't want to hear it. Here's a tip: never shop during "naptime". About one o'clock kids get cranky -take them home! Years ago we had a neighbor lady who ran after her kids with a fly-swatter - my Mom preferred threatening us with a yardstick but never actually used it!
