The Great Storm Of '06

The weathermen all said that this storm would be the worst winter storm since the great blizzard of '83. Well once again it would not have paid to put your money on the prediction. The great storm of '06 was nearly a complete bust. Don't get me wrong, there was some ice and it did get pretty cold but the umpteen days in a row of sub zero weather did not materialize. For that I am thankful. I don't mind a little bit of snow but I have a complete hatred of ice storms.

I have wrecked cars, gotten a concussion from falling on ice, and numerous other mishaps. I just plain hate the shit. So here is my little ode to ice.

Ice Ice Baby

Oh how I love you in a high ball glass
But when you're on the ground you're a pain in the ass.
You make me fall and you make me slip.
So laugh right now in your icy grip.
'Cause soon the day may come to pass
When global warming kicks your ass.

Oh Fuzz, you are getting so good at this poetry thing! You always make me smile! This was real cute. I esp like my ice in a glass instead of on my ass~!!! Huggs to ya Fuzz.

I love snow as well but ice sucks. Especially driving in it. I don't anyone who is "good" at it.

Leigh said...

I am totally with you on this one. I hate the cold, the ice and snow. Give me a hot day and an ice cold beer anyday over that.

Have a good day.

hey fuzz
I guess the freeballin would be a bad idea with the weather you have had.
Touching warm skin with ice activates the branch of the nervous system that's responsible for sexual arousal and erection-so maybe "borrowing" the ice from the glass one in a while would be nice!

Now you know what it's like to live in Canada 5 months of the year, minus the healthcare of course.

:P fuzzbox said...

catch: Hugs back darlin'. Glad I made ya smile.

lisa: It is really tough driving here as no one has any real practice with the stuff but once or twice a year.

leigh: Amen, and have a great day yourself.

johnny: I could really have used that after my noggin crack a few years ago.

snow and ice...that's how we spend most of the winter, I guess we are a little use to it.
my SIL hates cold of any kind...he says that he is FOR global warming!!! every payday he buys 2 aresol cans of deoderant and empties them...just to help speed up the warming :)

RAVEN the PITA said...

LOL You're such a goober!!

Here's to global warming yeah!
That's like this years Hurricane season was to be busier that usual. Same prediction as every year. They actually got it right for a couple of years. But ya know, a broken clock is right twice a day.

That day is coming very soon.

No shit weather people suck when they said we were going to get a foot of snow we get 4 inches, when they say we are not getting any snow we get a fucking foot of snow. I wish they would make up their minds!

A poet and didn`t know it.
Yes, the ''storm of the century'' was a bust....
I bet there will be a surge in births 9 months from now..
But not @ my house...

writer chick said...

yeah baby! loving that one!

:P fuzzbox said...

keshi: It must be a paradise.

ol lady: Sounds like a good idea. I should stop buying roll ons.

terry: Thanks. Glad you like the pics.

pita: Gotta luv it!!!

ozy: Yep the broken clock is the perfect analogy.

phoenix: Sorry but the jury is still out on this one for me. I keep thinking back to the mid '80's when all the scientists promised the return of the Ice Age and now global warming is the cry. Give me a break, when they can figure out if eggs are good or bad and keep the same decision for more that five years then I might believe it. Until then I will keep taking prognostications with a generous dab of salt.

dan: I heard y'all were hit pretty hard up north. Keep some snow ice cream in the freezer for me.

phred: Mine neither. :)

wc: Glad ya liked it.

I always thought I wanted to live somewhere colder. I'm over that now.

Snow in Tucson. Now that is some kinda weather.

Sherri said...

I'd be more then happy to send you the storm we're getting right now. :)

Paige Burns said...

Yeah, coldest winter in 10 years here in Phoenix. It snowed in parts of the valley. Then you have days like yesterday where it's 72 outside, go figure.
