Scotland has been bestowed with some asininely heavy rain over the past couple weeks. Something tells me this is a prelude to a very blockade-esque, looming snowstorm headed in our direction. Last time something as bad as this (might) came along, there were a good 10 straight days off school.
From the perspective of a high school student, I couldn't complain. From the perspective of older, employed people, like yourself, however, I can see your sorrow/relief as well.
"Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalised by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honour him and make whatever the man did live forever."
Everything is covered in snow, it feels more like mid November than early October. The plows have been out keeping the streets safe for the most part, but there is a big hazard with the trees because the leaves haven't fallen off yet. All of that snow piling up on the trees is cause for concern, wouldn't want all of that falling on you.
Nah, snow falling on you is as good as a punch to the jaw.
Well, that would depend upon who is punching you. I reckon a tight-packed mound of snow along with heavy tree branches would carry more ability to maim and/or kill than the average person punching you in the jaw.
I've heard she was quite a feisty one in her heyday, but somehow I doubt she's been on the receiving end of any punches. I've been out with the trusty Husqvarna keeping our trees in fine form, so I also don't suspect that she's fallen victim to a snow shower.
