An Open Letter to those in my new town

who told me that I wouldn't have to worry about snow, that we don't get snow here like in the northern part of the state:

You lie. Lie lie lie. Like a rug.

To be fair, this is the most we've gotten in several years. It's usually NOT this much. The upside is: this most likely means we're in for a mild winter next year! :-)

What she said. Usually, the pattern is lots of worry from the TV folks about winter storms bearing down on us followed by a few piddly flurries (while Beckley and the like get blasted). 60s by Monday!

ETW and JDB, I know it's a bit unusual for this area, and all told, it's much better than the northern part of the state where I spent most of my life. And you can tell from the snow removal (or lack thereof) that these folks aren't experienced in this area.

Still, last summer when folks were saying that, I thought to myself, "You're tempting fate. We're gonna get slammed." And I was right. Imagine that. ;-)

This year's snow is about normal. We get a few inches now and then about every winter. Last winter it was warm and we didn't get much snow, but the winter before that was about like this one. I've seen winters with no snow at all and winters where we had 3' on the ground. It's hard to predict what will happen in the southern half of WV.

People in the southern part of the state seem to forget the number of times they were stuck somewhere because of the snow or the ice. I am shamed by our lying. I am proud, though, to be compared to a rug for those are both useful and warm on my tootsies.
