Yup, they said it! Right there on the TV. Another storm coming. We had more than a foot a few days ago and now another storm has just started. The last one was a nor’easter and this one is, too. That’s a relatively big storm coming from, you guessed it, the North East. That storm made me grumpy, as you well know. Today the weather people are just taking their lives into their own hands. More than one of them said that we are going to have a BLIZZARD!!! Aww, c’mon people! Are you freaking kidding me?
I finally decided that there must be one angry god or goddess hating the Hades out of us up here in New England. I looked it up and this is what I found:
“Khione is the Greek goddess of snow, daughter of Boreas, god of the North Wind and Winter, and sister of Zethes and Calais. She is depicted as a goddess in the series, although in some myths she is visualized as a snow nymph.”
Let me just make it perfectly clear, Khione. Your number is up! I am about to go on a Khione-killing mission. So girl, you’d better make yourself scarce. Scarce as in skeddadle, baby! Take a powder! Yes, take all of the powder with you! I’m not kidding! I have dragons and they will smite you. Or at least melt you a bit, so if you don’t want to get all melty, get out!
You know, I complain about Winter a lot here. Much of it is in jest. After all, I live in Maine and Winter is to be expected. A long, cold winter is to be expected. But today I’m just ticked off. Can you tell?
So think of us in New England as we are digging out, yet again. Meanwhile, I’ll be summoning the dragons!
