SURGERY FOR CAROLYN, I WAIT FOR HER AND SNOW...
Here in the waiting room I’m looking out at the gray skies of Cedar Rapids. A classic Simon and Garfunkel song (Homeward Bound) is twinkling from around the corner as the receptionist smiles at all of us “waiters” in the room. Just another day for her-but she really does have a bright smile. Good teeth too.
Peering out the two story window at the bare ground and leafless trees I’m reminded again that I missed another big snow by less than 75 miles. It would be easy to complain but when you are in the surgery center your perspective is altered in a proper way…at least mine. What a stupid thing to gripe about…am I right!
Anyway, just look at these snowfall numbers. 13″ around Mason City with most of Iowa’s northern 2-3 counties getting 6-12″ totals. 10″ is all we’ve had the entire winter here in Cedar Rapids. Hard to believe places up north within 1-2 hours have had more than 40″ Close but no cigar! Another smile from the receptionist, I needed that.
