Pray for Snow

Yup, I'm praying. I only do this when puking and when I'm hoping to have a day off from work. When I'm puking it's usually a prayer that I live another day, but last week, I was puking and praying for the good lord (Alanis Morrisette) to take me. Tonight I'm asking Alanis to bring me some snow. The brats at school and I have one thing in common this night!

Fact of the matter is, I've been here all winter and haven't seen ANY snow at all. Snow is like the only redeeming quality that an ugly city has! It quiets the noise and blankets the trash so that even an empty anti-freeze bottle in a junkyard can look cool for once!

Today was cool. I got a few crappy cell phone pictures of a Red-tail hawk eating a pigeon! Nature taking a swipe at an invasive specie! I love it! I didn't think much of hawks a few years ago when one ate my invasive specie pet parrot............sigh. I miss Pietro.

Anyway, I hope I'm not setting myself up for disappointment with this whole snow thing. If so, there will be some longwinded essay on disappointment and unrequited love in my next post!

Stay tuned!

Prayer is the last resort for scoundrel. By the way, Forbes just put out their list of most miserable cities...Philly is # 5.
