Winter Gripes and Magic

Gene's pickup was too light to navigate the snow in the Midwest. And it doesn't have front or all wheel drive. Snow was the most economical solution. He scooped our drive until he filled the truck bed.

A pickup load of snow is not an unusual site in the Midwest, but Gene went home to south Mississippi.

His kids didn't know what was in Dad's truck. They had never seen snow. Puzzled neighbor kids came to look and play in it. Snowball fights spread it across their yard. Adult neighbors came by and commented on it. People driving by stopped and frowned.

Who would have thought Midwest snow would "break the ice" in a Deep South neighborhood. It was magic. Good job, Gene!
