Stopping by the drive on a snowy morning
February 18, 2014 - Rob Weaver
If the abbreviation “Ph.D.” really did stand for “piled higher and deeper” as stated in the old chestnut, then everyone who repeatedly has dug out of snowfalls this winter surely qualifies for a doctorate in snow removal. It's getting to be more of a challenge to toss scoops of snow higher atop -- or farther over -- growing piles lining sidewalks and driveways.
Of course, if the white stuff continues to stack up without intermittent melt-offs, I may need a doctor after the next snow-shovel workout.
One must admit, though, snow has a gentle yet pervasive beauty. I'll pass along these words reportedly strung together by Vista M. Kelly: Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together.”
