Dear El Toro

The day my father-in-law said I could have El Toro is a day I’ll never forget. I packed him up in the back of the truck after a particularly lame winter in 2005/2006 and winter has never been the same since. Sure, it still sucks to have to go outside but I can clear my driveway and my entire blocks sidewalks in less than an hour.

This winter has been particularly active. Skilling compared this winter to last and what I noticed is that last year the weather – precipitation wise – was inverted. That is, we got 80% of our snow after January 1st last year whereas this year, it appears that we’re headed for some serious record breaking.

Blizzard conditions tomorrow morning. And then another snowstorm Tuesday night and Wednesday. Yeesh.
