Reflections on winter

Knock on wood, but it appears Milwaukee’s third snowiest winter is finally over. It’s certainly a relief to not have to worry about more snow-related traffic deaths, drunken snowmobile crashes or getting my wheelchair stuck in slush any longer. I did learn this season that if one complains to the right people about snow removal, it can produce results. But since this is America, we must find something to blame the endless barrage of harsh weather on. My culprit? Global warming.
