Giving the bird to Mother Nature



Dear Mother Nature,

Let me to take a minute to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You picked the day before my girls were to go back to school to blanket my Southern California desert town with snow. Thank you so much for that. I was so looking forward to driving them to school, opening the passenger door, throwing them out, and heading home for a day of quiet and doing nothing. But, no. At 8 p.m., the school called with an automated message confirming my fears that there would be no school. And, with the way California schools react to the oddity of snow, they will more than likely cancel school again Tuesday. I cannot wait to have them come in and out of the house all day long, bringing with them wet clothes, snowballs, every kid on the block, and requests for hot chocolate. Ahh, and to do it on a day that I already had off. You couldn't wait till next Monday, the first day I was to be back in the classroom. Nope, you decide to really mess with me. So, thank you. Thank you very much you selfish bitch.

Sincerely,

Coachdad

  2. Yea she dumped a load of white stuff on us also today. But my kids didn't have school... so they played in it for a bit, but realized it wasn't fun to freeze while playing. So them and their friends are INSIDE the house and will be for the rest of the day... sigh.

  9. I hope MN feels suitably chastened. She has had a lot to answer for lately, what with our floods and cyclones and other bloody minded behaviour!
