A good friend of mine and his wife (also a great friend) told me once or twice about a book called One Thing You Can't Do in Heaven.
Well, as a spin-off on that, here's a short list of things you can't do in Michigan in Febraury:
- Have a barbecue
- Cut your grass
- Go to the Water Park
- Go fishing from a boat
- Go Para-sailing, water-skiing, or feel the sand between your toes at the beach (it's frozen solid)
- Buy a SNOW SHOVEL
Last week, my car was stuck. When I say stuck, I mean STUCK.
Checked Sam's Club - Nope.
Checked Wal-Mart - yes, but only one, and it was really really cheap and flimsy. Not good at all for a foot of packed-down snow.
Checked Lowes - Nope.
Checked K-Mart - Nope.
So finally I got one. Good ol' Meijer came through for me. Thank goodness for a Michigan-based company who has the brains to look outside and see that there just MIGHT be a need for snow shovels in February. And, as a bonus, they are on clearance for 50% off!
I can finally get into my driveway again, after about an hour and a half of shoveling last night. Not fun. At least I got to enjoy the snow over the weekend on Snowmobiles at my in-laws :) I just had to pay for it last night, lol.
