As I write this post, we, in the Carolinas, are under a winter storm watch.
I saw that eye roll! You’re thinking, good gracious alive – or something not so kind – what type of winter can happen in the southern US?!
Like in other parts of the country, we’re aware of the time to buy bread and milk, and when the weather folks are teasing us with nonsense reports. Yeah, go ahead, join me in a giant eye roll!
Anyway, there’s a cold pressure line aimed squarely on us, with moisture. See, one plus one equals snowwwwwwww!!!
So, as I keep one ear on the news, I heard NPR play an interview with David Priess, who served under both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush as a daily intelligence briefer.
According to Priess, it is up to the President to determine the amount of info he would like to hear. Priess reminisced about tidbits formed into snowflakes, or short snippets for the Commander in Chief to digest daily.
So, Priess surmises, it will not be difficult to adjust to the Pres. Elect’s 140 character style.
Aha, take that you Twitter creators! You are not the first snack-bite security morsels dished up for daily chow!
The interviewer switched to the sales pitch for Priess’ book, and I reached into the corners of my mind: snowflake…why is that joggling at me?
That’s it, right there, in my mind’s photo pet gallery, a cutie patootie hamster. Nope, sorry, not a picture exists. 😦
Our second mini fur ball, who survived the dreaded disease, wet tail, was SNOWFLAKE!
You are correct in assuming something about wetness and the area, it’s pretty nasty. But, Snowflake pulled through, with twice a day antibiotics, and lived to a ripe old age of 2 ½.
Perhaps I can apply the knowledge from treating him, to now, as changes occur in Washington. Dare I say, we can survive if we take an antidote, and even thrive, if we plan?
It’s no secret I didn’t support Trump. And swallowing the “let’s just wait and see” pill is way too large for me to consider right now.
However, I am taking a daily dose of kindness, in the form of your words, posted before the election, here. Huge thanks again, for those comments!
Do you have a plan to get you through the next few years?
How about your “snow prep” plan, what’s that like?
