Dear Central New York Residents,
I would like to apologize for all of the snow that we have received over the past week. Its my fault. I jinxed us, and for that, I’m sorry.
It happened like this …
The setting: Beautiful 40°F day in the middle of December.
The location: My house, in Baldwinsville, NY.
The players: Sandra, Steve
Sandra: Wow, it is a beautiful day today!
Steve: No kidding… I can’t believe it is nearly 45 degrees outside right now! It’s the middle of December.
Steve: Ya know, all this warm weather and lack of snow, really makes me think we overpaid for the snow plow service this year. We should have gone for the pay-as-you-go plan.
Sandra: You realize you just jinxed us, right? We’re going to get so much snow now.
Steve: Nah! That won’t happen! Global warming means no more snow!
Fast forward to a few days ago: Snow. Snow. More snow.
The forecast, so far, for this week:
So to everyone, I’m sorry for the jinx. I didn’t mean it!
However, there is a bright side, and no, I don’t just mean the sun shining off of all the snow. The bright side is that there is great sledding, skiing, and snow boarding all around the area.
Speaking of someone that is enjoying the snow…
