anne mikolay 2012 120Mother Nature's most recent “gift”, the fourteenth snowstorm this winter, brings the total snow accumulation for the 2013-2014 season to 56.6 inches. Needless to say, we are all winter weary; I suggest we throw down our shovels and laugh a bit – and not at each other slipping and sliding on the ice.

Let me tell you about a woman who was lost in a snowstorm. She did not panic and remembered what her father had always told her: “If you ever get stuck in a snowstorm, just wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it!”

Sure enough, a snow plow came by, and she obediently followed it for forty-five minutes. Finally, the driver of the snow plow got out and asked the woman why she was following him. She explained her dad told her to follow a snow plow if she got stuck in a snowstorm.

The driver said, “Well, I'm done with the Wal-Mart parking lot now, do you want to follow me over to Best Buy?”
