That was what was ahead of me about an hour ago and this is what was behind.

This is what we all deal with and today, as heavy as the slop was, it was an easy shovel day. This is however testing what I consider one of my ideas in life. I hate the south.

I tried living in Florida, "Florida, you say?" Yes Florida and it is Ass Clown University. Every minute not spent on the beach in Florida is a terrible one. First and most important, Florida is Crazytown, U.S.A. If you don't believe that I encourage you to listen to my radio show, where the state is prominently showcased in a feature we call Missed Headlines. This is 10 minutes of the funniest and dumbest crimes committed in our country the day before. Florida cities are responsible for 75 percent of these stories and that is a conservative figure.

Outside of a few gems, Florida has terrible architecture and landscapes. It is one strip mall after another Walgreens, Publix, Walgreens, Publix, blah, blah, blah. When you are not in a gem town like Key West, Miami, Marco Island, Captiva, are in a nothing town.

Florida is not the only problem and if I had the time I would tell you why I hate Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. The southeast region sucks. Their food is unreasonably inferior and the job opportunities are horrible. No matter what anyone tells you about the cost of living the pay ends up balancing that out in a hurry.

That being said, on a day like today I have one eye fixed on the south. I do not care for this sloppy garbage. At least a powdery snow has a simple beauty to it but when you are bogged down in the colors grey and brown, it's hard to see an upside to living here.

Leaving the northeast will always cross my mind on days like today but I won't. This is my home. We have the best of everything and a little bit of snow is not going to shake me, at least for now.
