MY DAD USED TO LIKE TO RECITE THIS VERSE, IN COLD WEATHER OR OTHERWISE

Don't look at me that way, stranger.
I didn't shit in your seat.
I just come down from the Lehigh Valley,
With my balls all covered with sleet.

Balls and sleet...not so perfect together.

Sounds like your dad came from Pennsylvania. I guess you guys are stealing all our snow. Hang in there.

As we used to say "It's time for Professor Ballsoff".

I think it was a toss up. Our part of Wa. got between 18" and 26". Spokane is still digging out (5 feet I'm told).

Yeah, this winter has been crazy so far. I actually appreciate Seattle's gray skies and rain now!

Spokane has 70 inches for the season, 26 inches on the ground at the airport, and the roofs of buildings, mostly flat-topped businesses, are collapsing under the weight of snow and ice at an alarming rate. I think it was up to more than 30 yesterday.

We seem to be going for the 84-inch record, and likely to break it. It's a feat I wish I could admire from afar — Florida or Hawaii.

With chinook winds finally lifting us out of the deep freeze we were in for the entire month of December, we're now looking forward to flooding.

Cool pictures. Port Angeles even got snow before and during Christmas. The nearby mountains are snow-covered most of the time, but it's rare to get snow downtown and along the waterfront.

It's just been overcast here. Gray, ugly, and cold.

Now that's a poem!

Carlos, I could probably test that theory in the weather we have been having here, but I think I should pass! HEh!

Mac, my dad was actually from right here in NE Oregon, but his family came here from Missouri. He was always a history buff, though. Here is another one he used to like to recite:

We're mountaineers with hairy ears,
We piss through leather britches. We wipes our ass with broken glass,
We're hearty sons of bitches.

Demeur and J., I find it hard to believe Seattle could get that much snow... and S.W., same goes for Spokane! Unbelievable...

Tom, I can remember having snow in two of the five winters I live in P.A. In one winter in maybe 1985 or 86 there were 18 inches in backyard up on Lopez Street.

Hey, Sheryl, at least you don't have the SNOW! 8-)

EOTR, thanks for coming by! Sorry about your comment not being posted by our beloved Blogger, which can indeed tend to have a nasty appetite at times! Glad you like the poem!
