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!
Gotta love those NE winters! Yep, our Mom bundled us up like Randy, too. Ever noticed how your I.Q. drops as soon as you enter a Walmart? Some people don't have much to lose. Oh well, its going to be over 40 here so I'm off to get some sun!
