"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
by Mark Lange,posted Dec 12 2013 5:14AM
Haven't had a full day of school for a week, bone chilling cold persists even as the sun shines brightly, roads are still slick early in the morning, and most of us drive too fast for conditions morning, noon, and night. Oh... and more snow, sleet, ice, and cold are on the way. Anything good about this except the overtime pay the road crews get - and deserve? The snow stories, comments, and jokes, are a nice distraction from all the negativity concerning our national government and many of its programs.
Here are two of my favorite snow comments:
"I'm going to buy a jeep and get a plow on the front, left up the plow and drive around town pretending I'm going to clear parking lots and streets."
"I don't know why that guy spends all the money on his lawn and landscaping. Right now my yard looks just the same as his and I don't do anything."
