Snow Gate

Here's a pensive image of the city at rest, enjoying a snowfall.
Well, it's the weekend. Do you know why I know it is? More snow is in my forecast. I'm listening this morning and Mr. Weatherman is telling me that we're going to be experiencing a 'weather event' Saturday night into Sunday. Really? A weather event? Why not just drop it on me that my snowblower better be back in the garage, because it looks like another 3-6 inches is headed my way. And what's the deal with the 'American model' as opposed to the 'European model'? When did these opposing terms come into play in my life? For the last three weekends, we've endured winter storms of one magnitude or another and for the life of 'em, the weather dudes and dudettes, that I watch on my telly, can seem to figure out what model we're getting. One is always harsher and stronger than the other, but they can never get it straight. Which one is entering my life over the next 6-10 hours? Get me a model I can live with! I guess it's time to set the record straight with NOAA, the National Weather Service. Listen buddy, there's only one model I want in my life and I think you know who it is. Give me the German-borm, ever dangerous Heidi Klum in all her fury! 
Now that's a storm I could endure! I think...

By the way, don't get me going on the weather service's new fun activity: naming snowstorms! This one is called "Q". What's this all about?
Heidi!

  1. Try as I may, I can never get a decent photo of an ironwork gate. You did a splendid job with this one! It's very attractive. Have a GREAT week-end; getting lots of exercise?

  6. The gate 's design is highlighted by the snow scene, and I am trying to imagine it in the summer surrounded by green and flowers.

    I am enjoying your snow stories from afar as we see nary a flake here.

  7. Beautiful gate! I do share your frustration with the weather reporting people. They simply never get it right.

  8. Hahaha re. Heidi! Even weather forecasts are now Entertainment. Your "Q", it's all about the profits. Your gate, it's about very pretty.

  10. Fabulous photo. Hey, I agree with you about weather folk--they get out-of-hand rather quickly, like some weather does. Drive me crazy when they appear to salivate about what they're predicting. Anyway, Birdman, about my post I ate the burger and fries before heading to the Rose Garden Arena, on a non-game night, but I certainly understand what you mean about being too tired!

  11. Well, heck, I wrote what I thought was a funny comment but Blogger ate it, I guess.

    So, I'll just say "Stop whining about the snow. I've got real problems. It looks like rain Sunday here and I'm supposed to play golf! Sheesh!"

  13. We've had a bit of the fluffy stuff most of the afternoon. But I don't have such a pretty gate.

    And weatherman had said blue sky.

  14. Birdman -- Good that it snows on the weekend -- gives you time to use that snow-blower -- barbara

  15. Good old puritanical New England. Clear up during the week so we can get five hard days of work in, then snow on the weekend to punish the multitude.

  16. Q, who ever named it must have a James Bond fetish.

  17. Your getting snow, we're getting rain. At this point I am not sure which is worse. Makes for a miserable weekend regardless.

  18. wonder what you're getting there. here it's the little storm that couldn't...try as it might. it's just making everything drear and damp and slushy. now heidi might change its attitude.

  20. This is a lovely gate, wherever it is.

    You've got way too many rivals for Heidi, so I wish you lots of luck.
