Today's Earworm

Louisville is in the midst of its first real snowfall this winter.  The local weather critters are hyperventilating about how bad this could get, and school closed two hours early today so that the students could get through their three hours of busride (no joke) before it gets dark.

Here's my take on it, with apologies to SSG Barry Sadler.

Fluffy snowflakes from the sky
Kentucky people whine and cry
Half an inch will fall today
Tomorrow morning, I'll shovel the driveway

Woolen cap upon my head
I'd rather be sleeping back in bed
School is closed, at home I'll stay
Right after I shovel the damn driveway

Kroger looks like a bomb has hit
The food is gone, every bit
Eggs, milk, and bread are their mainstay
A french toast emergency on a snowy day

Back at home, my laptop waits
I can't leave my customers to their fates
Email, WebEx, IM, and cell
Working remotely during the White Hell

Shovel the driveway, I tell my kid
But Dad, she says, I already did!
Half an inch more will fall today
Tomorrow morning, I'll shovel the driveway

Seriously! 3hrs?? Please tell me thats unusual because of the snow.....

No, some kids spend 3 hours each way on the bus. Apparently the Supreme Court saying that bussing is a bad thing isn't good enough.

It is the same here in GA, all the weatherliars have to do is mention the word "snow" and the Kroger is stampeded for beer and bread. Since I know how to drive in the stuff, it don't bother me.

LOL, I met three sisters and their mother this morning doing a 'girls' week in Hawaii, they are ALL from Kentucky, and one of them was from Louisville. She was laughing about her hubby having to deal with it...

Turned out it wasn't that bad. The driveway is a bit icy, but the snow was light enough that the wind swept it clean. School wasn't even delayed, much to Girlie Bear's disappointment.
