I sometimes hear someone say “I love snow”. I hope they got their fill this month. I can’t recall south central Kansas being hammered by two such major snow events in such rapid succession. I loved snow when I was a boy … especially sledding with my brothers down a hill on a street next our house in Kingman. I don’t much care for snow anymore.
It’s come to mean hundreds of people I talk about on the air, who receive an unwelcome invitation to call their insurance agent and schedule a body shop appointment. I also read school closings on the air … each one signifying frantic parents looking for last-minute child care for students when those parents need to be at work.
I salute all those who continued with their daily duties during the big storms … emergency workers, postal workers, and the people who repair everything from electric wires to washing machines. Well done … and thank you!
Our thought for today is from Mark Twain:
“Do something every day that you don’t want to do; this is the golden rule for acquiring the habit of doing your duty without pain.”
