Dear Snow… I Love You… To Infinity


I’m anxiously awaiting your arrival. I look forward to you every year.

When it’s cold outside I sit down on the cold asphalt driveway of mine and wish for a snowy winter.

…I like the snow.

My fear and agony that I hold deep inside of my chest lay there resting when you come, waiting for the snow to melt so they can come back in haunt me. But while you are here I am safe, covered and overwhelmed by your cold and glistening white.

I’m never prepared for you snow. You seem to show up whenever I need you, like right now. I’ve been waiting since last year when you dropped mounds of snow on top of my city. Did I ever tell you that I was deicing UPS airplanes until 10am the next day at work? I racked in a lot of money that day… money that I used to probably buy a pack of cigarettes and pay for my shitty phone service.

When I hear about you on the news before your arrival I always turn to the skies. The weathermen may say one thing but I always look towards the blanket that shields space in search of your pink haze that you bring to the clouds. That’s how I verify that you’re on the way. It’s a chilling but yet thrilling experience to see how you can make such an effect on the sky above me.

When you slowly begin to come down to earth like a parachute, I let out a sigh of relief. I try my best to conceal my excitement becasue I know it will not last long. I spend hours on the internet watching the temperatures so I can make sure how long your presence will be here. You always bring this type of closeness with you every time you come. I don’t feel alone when you’re here; blanketing my front yard and the streets that lead me to other places than home.

The sadness strikes when I go to sleep with the fear of waking up to clear skies and a bright sun. Although everyone hates you, I’m the one that loves you. Unlike anything on this world, you bring comfort to my life.

Thanks Snow.

Canadian Snow Models are Crazy!

All of my friends know for a fact that I love snow. Whenever I hear about snow on the news I am the first to be on all of the weather sites keeping myself up to date with amounts and cold temperatures.

One blog in particular that I like to keep up with is our local weather man here in Louisville, John Belski. He’s always the first person to be on top of weather updates and how much we can expect in the area. He shares photos of the GFS, Euro, and NAM models. I can’t really tell you the meaning behind those names, other than that they show different snow totals. Usually they never really show a whole lot of snow. For example here is what the GFS model looks like…


Every time I saw this on the radar I would speculate that the snow would miss us. The snow models that really caught my eye were the Canadians. They look a little something like this…


The canadian model shows at least 6-10 inches of snow. How they comes up with these totals I have no clue, but it’s really awesome to look at and speculate. According to Belski’s blog, we won’t be seeing this snow until Wednesday. A second system is expected to come the following day so we will see how this turns out.

In the meantime, I’m going to sip on my coffee and try to keep warm as these cold fronts make their way on in.

New Year, New Snow


I loves snow. Ask all my friends and they will tell you that I am crazy but it’s true. That sounded a little bit weird but who are you to judge? 

Last night when I was coming back in from recording I saw the snow. It was weird because earlier in the day it was fairly warm but as soon at 4am hit the temperature was well below 40. I was taking a few drags from my pipe when I could see the little specs of white falling in front of my neighbors security light. 

I intended on checking the forecast but got caught up in trying to make my new mini remix work. When I later on woke up I took a peek outside and saw the ground covered. We can officially say the first snowfall hit Louisville. This means the next one is going to be business. 

First Sunday of The New Year

Well I have been keeping up with the weather as usual and this cold spell that we are entering is no joke. The temperatures are dropping well below zero!

I asked my dad the other day if he wanted me to salt the driveway because I would much rather not shovel 3 feet of snow out of the driveway. He told me no, which really has my nerves itching because there is supposed to be a “cold snap” which is going to freeze the rain that has been falling all day. The snow is practically on its way. I’m pretty sure by the time I am finished with this post I’ll start seeing flurries fall. Then I’ll watch those flurries turn into huge snow flakes.

I remember last year how I was really excited for this bad winter. I heard from several people that it was going to be bad but I didn’t know that the temperatures were going to drop like they are going to tonight. The wind chill is supposed to be around -30. This worries me because I am part of UPS’s deice crew and if I end up going into the bucket to spray deice fluid on planes, I will certainly freeze my ass off.

They always say be careful of what you wish for; I wished for a lot of snow and hell, the whole entire east coast its getting a HUGE snow storm.

I wonder if this will be like the snow storm of 94?

ps: I’ll be blogging photos of the winter wonderland later tonight!
