I have a serious beef with Mother Nature this year. First she sends that huge B, Irene, to ruin the last weekend of summer and now she’s trying to kill Halloween weekend with snow. Snow.
First of all, did she forget that this is Connecticut, not Canada or like…Minnesota? Snow happens in the winter, not the fall. So, you can imagine my extreme horror and confusion when I read this:
“A winter storm watch has been issued by the National Weather Service for Northern Fairfield County. The watch is set to begin Saturday afternoon and end Sunday morning…. a major storm is expected to blow through the state, bringing with it rain, several inches of snow and winds — 60 miles per hour in some areas — as high as those measured during Hurricane Irene, Simmons says. According to Simmons, the shoreline will see between 3 to 6 inches of snow, while inland areas, including the Danbury region, could see from 6 to 10 inches of snow.” –News Times
I can’t think of a worse day for this snow-hole to come around. Not only do I have to wear a little dress and peep-toes heels to a wedding, but I was planning on getting my Peter Pan on afterward. Is my lack of 4-wheel-drive really going to hinder my ability to go out for Halloween? And also, doesn’t the snow know that Halloween costumes are supposed to be skimpy? That’s why the pagans decided Halloween should be in the fall.
The best part of this whole thing is that it’s going to be sunny and lovely on Sunday and Monday, meaning that this is a deliberate attempt on nature’s part to ruin adult Halloween. The kids will be safe for trick-or-treating on Monday, which is unnecessary because their moms make them wear turtlenecks under their costumes anyway.
In conclusion, I am asking the snow to please stick to the original plan of “light dusting.” Or better yet, just stay the F away from me!
