Snow gets in your eyes
It was weird this morning to have the dusting of snow. That is all we had here where I live, just a dusting. But it was enough to change the light and the feel of the room.
When I came out of the shower wrapped in a towel and walked to the closet to get dressed, something was different and that was what it was.
Hardly any but still.
One thing I could not believe, I was listening to the Christmas station, WJYE. Do not ask me why I listen to the Christmas station this early. It is just another option I add to my car listening along with WBEN and Catholic Radio and my Leonard Pennario recordings. Anyway, the guy on this Christmas station, Joy FM, what does he say about the snow?
"Well, Old Man Winter paid us a visit last night."
Dourly! He went on to announce the next number, which was Rod Stewart singing "My Favorite Things" ...
...so all was forgiven as far as I was concerned.
But come on!
That station should trot out its best Shane Brother Shane impression and go, "OK, people wonder why we're blasting Christmas music at you this early. This is why. Look outside, folks! Snow on the ground! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! I've got my love to keep me warm! It's that time of the year! And you came to the right place. We're going to be bringing you all kinds of snowy songs. Here we go ...."
And they ease on into "Winter Wonderland."
That's how it's done!
