Snow, damnit!

Post by tGreenWay on Fri Jan 20, 2017 2:36 pm

I'm tired of walking through mud and seeing nothing but dreary gray and drab brown. We had a deal! When the earth goes to sleep around here, the snow is supposed to cover up the ugly. We keep our mouths shut about November and April because that's part of the agreement. But something's broke and you damn well better fix it fast.

I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

I hate to say it, but I kinda agree. A good 6 inches is all you need. I'm tired of it all just being a wet mess out there.

This is the worst winter ever. It is worse than last year's winter. This is pretty much spring. One day last week or the week before it was 56 degrees outside. It has not snowed since around Christmas, and there is no snow on the ground.

The good news is I am not using that much propane. The bad news is I probably could have skipped the snow plow contract this year and saved some money.

I normally agree, especially because I travel all over for work and I hate driving in the snow. If I had it my way, it would be 70 degrees here. But this constant rain and wetness is annoying too.

Good point. It's supposed to be 50 tomorrow anyway, so we're good. Safe travels! I need my drinking buddy ready in full force this tailgating season.

yep - started snowing this morning in EL around 5:30 or so.. didn't look like it would amount to anything, really. Came in from running, took a shower, etc - went back out around 7:15 and the edges of the grass were white.

I'm diggin' it.

Its going to be 78 and no humidity today. Perfect day for sitting in an office waiting for 5pm with a 90 minute drive home to darkness.

I wish the parking situation at my employer didn't suck complete ass. My options this winter are basically:

1) Walk 15-20 minutes through the snow each way
2) Drive 10 minutes to parking ramp, then walk 15-20 minutes through the snow each way.

Being able to walk to work in the summer is awesome though. Not sure how I feel about the trade off yet. I do remember walking to class at MSU 30 minutes each way and not even being paid for that, so I guess this isn't too bad in the grand scheme of life. First world problems.

Coworker and I started talking about hating winter today.  He's in his mid 20's and lives about 4 miles from work.  Said he's been keeping an eye on craigslist for one of these for winter work commutes
