The Snow Storms in the USA – It’s not me, its you.

I am saddened today to see that at least eight people have lost their lives in the amazing snow storms that have hit the USA.  It is truly a tragedy how mother nature can cause so much devastation when she flexes her muscles like this.

That said today on the UK television news I saw this picture;

Now seriously, most of the state has been hit by up to 6 feet of snow.  Please give me a clue, why are you trying to dig out your car?  Just where exactly is it that you think you are going to go?  Most of the roads look something like this.

Now seriously just what are you trying to achieve?  Spare a thought for the emergency workers who will be trying to reach people in need, the elderly, the infirm and those at risk.  Maybe you should go check on your neighbours, see that they are OK, help them out.  Forget about your damn car until the thaw sets in.  One of us is a candidate for a Darwin award, and guess what?  It ain’t me!

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
