Frozen in Catasauqua

I don't care
What they're going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway!

Well, that might be good for Elsa, but that is not good enough for me.  This winter in Catty didn't start out that bad.  December wasn't that cold but then came January, February and now March.  I just came back to the office and they are brining the streets here is in Allentown for some more snow this weekend.  I haven't seen much predicted 1 to 3 inches maybe.  Some mornings when I drive down Third Street in Catty I am in awe of the snow/ice mounds everywhere.  Where does the next snow go?  

I don't think the snow bothers me as much as does the cold.  The sun burns bright today but the temperature is in the 20's.  The ice doesn't melt.  After lasts weekend brief warm temperatures my back yard turned first into mud, then a lake and now a small frozen pond.  Since my Mother parks out in the driveway she has come up with a creative way to get to her car.  Instead of going straight down the yard she has devised a clever path whereby she hangs a right at our shed then climbs the fence, swings from the tree and lands on her car.  Okay - it might not be as complicated as that but when my mom tells me that's what I envision.  

But take heart Catasauqua, the sun is shining and it is 21 days until Spring - so what if the real feel temperature is 18 degrees and the low tonight will be zero, frolic in the sunshine and know that next weekend starts daylight savings time, so it will be light and cold longer every day.

So stay warm fellow Catasauquians and take heart - before you know it we will be complaining about the heat.....and that's Another Day in Catasauqua.
