This morning, as I watched the third over-full-no-room-for-you train go by, I thought about the recent snow.
It's really pretty and everything, and there was the walk home from Olga's party Friday night, when it was just dumping snow all around, and it was late at night and pretty. That part is great.
BUT, here's some other Things About The Recent Snow (good things and bad things):
1. Kids here don't even play in it. We live next to a giant lot. There are kids on our street, on every street around us. This would be prime ground for building igloos, snowball fights, whatever. Maybe these kids just don't have snoveralls because they would only need them a couple times a year? Anyway - children of Philadelphia: you're bad at snow.
2. Know what else? Scooter transactions don't happen if it snows. I'm kind of in the "believe it when I see it" phase, but I might be getting a new, old, scooter, and it was supposed to happen this weekend.
3. Something I do like though, is when you've got a sidewalk that's pretty clear, and your boots crunch the salt? I mean, it's conflicting, because then all your shoes have salt stains on them, but the actual crunching is nice, because you know you're not going to fall, and it sounds great.
4. Taking the El someplace? Forget it. Figure it out Septa, please.
5. We hit South Philly on Saturday, Walmart was a shoveless zombie world, and the movies weren't even open (til 5)! So, we did go to the movies eventually, and saw Legion, which was so strangely terrible it's not even worth describing. Bad movies on snowdays feels okay though (see also Back to the Future II, and the Good Theif.)
If we have to keep getting snow, maybe it could come on a weekday this time? That would be funner in a different way, right?
p.s. I just saw that DD's is offering their 99c Latte. Everyone should have that, all the time.
