12. I hate winter weather reports
Doom and gloom, school closings, bread and milk raids etc.

I'm always slightly offended that weather reporters infer that there's something wrong with people who like sleet, ice, and snow. I moved to Alaska for the weather. I lived in the mountains in Colorado for the weather. I visited Niagra Falls in December one year, and laughed as the spray turned to sleet, and pelted me.

I think kids are weenies when they close the schools here in Iowa for 2" of snow. They never closed the schools when I was a kid, and we walked to school. None of this "Mommy deliver us to the door" crap.

I just scraped 3" of ice off my car windows, and delivered 60 newspapers.

Call me :crazy:
