I give up - I give in - I have had enough!!

We are on the tail end of our 3rd snow storm in February, thank goodness the month is just about over.

A third snow day from school, a third day of customer cancelling appointments, a third day of shovelling.

Good thing about being a Realtor is that I can work from the comfort of my home. I made my calls, checked on my deals, and worked on confirming a closing for next week.

In between I asked  myself why I live here. Whon on Long Island, why in the Five Towns of all places? Why not live somewhere warmer - somewhere snow does not happen.

I came to realize that I love the change of seasons, I love being near NYC, I love being 5 minutes from the beach, I love being near my parents.  

My children got a great public education and made some great friends, my husband is a short drive from the skiing that he loves.

I guess when you look at it all togther, the snow is just a temporary inconvenience that passes, the important things will remain.

So I will shovel out one more time (I can use the exercise anyway) and hope that this is the last snow storm of the year.

I know I am ready for Spring!

Every time I get tired of this extra-cold winter here in the mountains of North Carolina, I just turn on the Weather Channel and watch what you guys are going through!  I think I'll stay where I am...

I gotta agree with Kate, you noreasterners have really gotten blasted!   I just had to drive down to "warm weather" in Dallas and they even had snow!  Where IS that global warming!

I think they now call it Climate Change - guess they couldn't justify the Golbal Warming anymore.

I think even more annoying than the snow ar the weather reporters coming on with Special Reports every half hour to tell us that it's snowing and to drive carefully. Ummmm DUH! It is NY, it does snow. Weather is weather, it is not always an event.

Hi Donna,

It is great that you can still work from home. I bet no one expects to view homes for a few days in this kind of snow, so you get a chance to catch up on other things!

Stay warm!

Best regards,
