In the beginning, there was snow.
And the snow begat snowplows, snowblowers,
snow shovelers and very large pick-up
trucks with blades. And the snowplows,
snowblowers, snow shovelers and
very large pick-up trucks
with blades begat snow berms.
And the snow berms begat -- BERMTOPIA.

We made it!
I am celebrating February 1 today. For a confirmed winterphobe like myself, it's a little bit like Christmas, Easter and the Tooth Fairy all rolled in one.
Think of it. A short month -- just 28 days -- till the beginning of March! And we all know what means. No doubt, one or two more spates of poopy weather, but . . . 28 days till March.
It is (literally) a beautiful day. Friggin' cold (can you say single-digit lows tonight?), but beautiful. But despite the arctic blast, our sunlight has just a titch of heat. Daylight lingers just a little longer. And except for a few scabs of snow here and there, sidewalks are blissfully bare. It is now safe to move around Bermtopia.
