Dear Mother Nature

Dear Mother Nature,

I have a bone to pick with you. It’s winter. This is Pennsylvania. We’re supposed to be getting snow during the winter. Seriously. But no, you have chosen to send snow to people who normally don’t get it, just to mess with their heads. You’ve been inundating places that normally have a smallish annual snow fall with tons of snow, making people mad at you and the snow, wishing the snow would go away and not come back.

We’ve been wanting to get some snow here, but you have not yet delivered. We’ve been patient, we accepted the fact that we wouldn’t get a White Christmas in spite of all our wishing and hoping. We were kept on the edge of our seats as our weather forecasters predicted not just one, but four different blizzards over the course of the last few months. But you still didn’t deliver. You have been taunting us.

This morning I woke up and saw that you are yet again taunting us. Sending us maybe an inch is not acceptable. Come on, can’t you do better than that? It’s not enough to warrant a snow day, not enough for the Princess Nagger to make snow angels, not even enough for a ‘Modified Kindergarten’ schedule (which I’m actually secretly happy about, she’s only gone 3 hours as it is, to take away an hour would have been detrimental to my bi-monthly grocery shopping that happens today). But I digress.

Your whole whopping one inch of snow only taunts us further. You have the ability to send us more, but you keep making promises that you don’t keep (i.e., the ‘blizzards’ we were supposed to get that never even formulated and we got nary a flake), then when we aren’t expecting to get anything (I don’t expect any precipitation when it’s less than 100% predicted…especially when you haven’t been able to ‘deliver’ when it’s been a 90% prediction!) you decide to toss a little snow our way to show us that you can, and only serves as an inconvenience for scheduled activities for the day. Thanks.

I respectfully request that you reorganize your distributors so you can send decent snow to those that are hoping for it, and give a break to those that are already tired of it. It’s a simple request, really, and I’m sure that your little Snow Elves can figure something out.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. I live in Ohio and we don’t have any snow here, but I wish we did.s It’s already near 20 below with the windchill…at least some snow would make the FREEZING cold bearable.s

  2. So that’s where Mother Nature sent our snow!s Methinks someone needs to give her a new GPS to keep her delivery routes more concise… 😉 s
    s
    I’ll put in a request to the Snow Elves to come pick up our share…I apologize for the inconvenience you’ve had trying to keep it white and cold for us over here… 😀 s If you see Mother Nature’s dump truck missing its mark again and trying to dump more snow on you, can you please flag them down and redirect them over here?s Thanks! 😉 s
    s
    Thanks so much for stopping by, Lin – and for letting us know where our snow ended up! LOL!! 🙂

  4. Yeah, that site of the day is pretty cool, isn’t it? 😉
    s
    -12?! Yup, that’s cold! 😀 s So far it’s 20-degrees here, but sunny…supposed to be windy, so the windchill is supposed to be in the single digits…not as bad as your negative temps, though! 😉 s Thanks a bunch for stopping by, Harriet! 😀

  5. I couldn’t agree with you more, Allison!s The least Mother Nature could do would be to give us some of that pretty white stuff to compensate for the COLD temperatures…we’re supposed to hit a ‘high’ of the mid-teens tomorrow…not taking into account any windchill factors.s I’d like some SNOW to make my freezing digits happy to be frozen! 😉 s Thanks so much for stopping by! 😀

  6. Oh yes, absolutely – send all the snow, but keep the ice! 😉 s Thanks for stopping by, Annie! 🙂

  7. I think she’s majorly confused this year! 😉 s She’s sending snow to non-snowy areas, and neglecting the areas that normally get snow…giving snow to people that don’t want snow, but not giving it to the people that do want it! 😉 s Thanks for stopping by, Tara! 😀

  8. LOL!s Send on the snow, Kristen! 😉 s We already have cold weather (finally stopped giving us 60+ degree weather then making it dive into the 30’s…now we’re in the teens, with a low tonight of 8… tomorrow’s high will be a whopping 15 degrees – for the HIGH!)s If it’s going to be this cold, I want some pretty white snow to go along with it! LOL! 🙂 s Thanks so much for stopping by! 😀

  9. I would happily take it off your hands, Firefly!s 😉 s Send it on over! 😀 s Thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂

  10. Please,please Mother Nature, answer her prayer and take all the snow away from here, we don’t need it!, we hate it!,we have enough, actually too much of a snow to build a complete genealogy of snowman and all the snownagels you cna think of.

  11. Thanks, Elizabeth!s I knew I could count on you! 😉 s Thanks so much for stopping by! 😀

  12. See, Mother Nature?s You’re whole snow schedule is discombobulated…you need to reorganize your distribution!s There are so many people like FickleMinded who would gladly give up their excess of snow to make those of us who haven’t got any equally happy.s 😉
    s
    Thanks so much for stopping by, maybe Mother Nature will hear your plea! 😉

  13. You’re clearly on the wrong side of the state. We’ve got about six inches on the ground!

  14. Stacy I have to be honest with you here, even though we normally get plenty of snow here in Nebraska we haven’t gotten hardly any this year and I couldn’t be happier.s It has been very cold but I will take that over the snow.s I hope you get the snow you want.s 🙂

  15. Are you crazy!?!s Who wants that much snow… (hee hee) Just a dusting makes everything look pretty, right?s That is definitely one thing I don’t miss from my old stompin’ grounds 🙂 s But if you want it, I hope you get it!s Funny…

  16. Hello 🙂 sThank you so much for stopping by and supporting my big day Wednesday. It means so much to me!!!
    s
    Stay in touch!!
    s
    😉 s

  17. I think your White Christmas lost the way and ended up in Seattle! We got more snow that we can handle this year. : )

  18. You must live near me. We get all gloom and doom and then about 10 flakes fall. We’ve had over an inch once this year. Being as I grew up in Erie, this is unacceptable for winter. We did have a 2hr delay yesterday, but all that did was screw up my day. If it’s going to be this cold, it could at least snow and look pretty. High of 15 today – brrrrrrrrrrr.

  19. I can relate.s We had 58″ in December which is a record and since then nothing really, just a dusting here and there but it is bitter cold.s I’d sure rather have more snow and less cold.

  20. Yes, definitely on the wrong side of the state…we seem to be in a ‘pocket’, everyone else gets the weather, we’re feeling a bit left out…LOL!!!s Thanks so much for stopping by, Susan! 😀

  21. LOL!s You are probably SO right!!s She’lls hold off, and just when my lovely plants and trees start to bud, she’ll decide that is the perfect time to throw a bunch of snow on us… LOL!!s Thanks so much for stopping by, Aubrey! 😀

  22. Thanks, Star, it was my pleasure!s I’ll be back for sure! 🙂 s Thanks so much for stopping by!

  23. I think if we hadn’t been gypped the past 3 or more years in the ‘snow department’ (especially since I moved here from Seattle – it’s like the two states swapped their ‘normal’ weather) I’d probably be in the same mindset as you are…you know, if I had been annoyed by snow the past few years, I’d be really happy we haven’t gotten any good snow this year… 🙂 s
    s
    I just want one really good snow, the kind that doesn’t get followed by sleet and ice storms, nice powdery fun snow that the Princess Nagger can build a cool snowman, have a great snowball fight and just have fun and play.s The last time we had that kind of snow, she was way too young/little to really enjoy it (though she was hilarious with her little snow shovel trying to help me shovel the long driveway…heh, heh!)
    s
    Thanks so much for stopping by! 😀

  24. You are SOOOOOO lucky! Not only can you have our snow but our -37 temperature for today. Did I mention the windchill is -57 below?s lol

  25. Well, some people have been known to refer to me as ‘crazy’…LOL!!! 😉 s A dusting is good, but what I love about a ‘good’ snow day is the quiet that reigns over the whole area…it’s quite magical.s I think more so because we live right on a very busy road, so when we get a ‘good’ snow, there is less traffic, and what traffic there is tends to be ‘muffled’ by the amount of snow…peaceful! 😉
    s
    Thanks so much for stopping by, Nicole! 😀

  26. Awww, it was my pleasure, Maki!s I’ll be back! 😀 s Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂

  27. LOL!s Yep, it just figures I moved from Seattle to Pennsylvania expecting to have a lot more snow that we had out there…only to have the roles reversed!s My aunt, parents, siblings and friends all still live out there – so of course they’ve been taunting me with how much snow they’ve gotten this year! LOL!!s My aunt, however, is ready for Spring to be arriving soon…she’s tired of it all, and thinks I really should take it off her hands…LOL!!!
    s
    Thanks so much for stopping by!s I sure miss living in Seattle… 🙂

  28. It does sound like we live in the same area!s We keep getting ‘missed’ by the ‘good’ stuff! LOL!!s I totally agree – if it’s going to be this cold, there needs to be snow to make it a ‘pretty’ cold! 😀 s Thanks so much for stopping by, Amanda! 😀

  29. I absolutely agree, Mountain Woman! 🙂 s More snow, less frigid temperatures! 🙂 s Thanks so much for stopping by! 😀

  30. Holy Moly! -57?!s Well, um, OK, maybe I should amend my request… 😉 s SNOW, please – but keep your cold below-zero-weather, please! 😉 s Today our ‘high’ might hit 18…so yes, I’m thankful it’s not as cold as your weather! 😀 s Thanks so much for stopping by, Lydia! 😀

  31. Everyone that has already had snow (and some have had more than enough of their share) are so ready for summer…LOL!s As for me, bring on the snow!s At least one day of ‘good’ snow…then summer can come on over! 😉 s Thanks for stopping by, Jenni – sorry you’ve had your fill of snow…feel free to send it on over here! 😉

  32. Oh, thank you, Megan, I’d appreciate it!s I’ll be happy to take it off your hands…just to make my Little Princess happy so she can build a snowman, make a snow angel and build a snow fort…oh, and throw lots of snowballs at Dada! 😉 s Thanks so much for stopping by! 😀
