Wasn’t me!

It seems like every year as soon as we start to think that winter is finally behind us, we hear whispers of the age-old superstition that if you put away your snow shovel, pack up your winter jacket, or even take off your snow tires, it will then snow. And you know what? I think there might be some truth to it!

I mean, how many times have you thought to yourself, “It’s finally warming up, I can put away my winter gear now,” only to wake up the next morning to a blanket of snow covering everything? It’s like Mother Nature is playing some kind of cruel joke on us, right?

But then again, maybe it’s not just a superstition. Maybe there’s actually some logic behind it. I mean, we all know that weather can be unpredictable, and just when we think we’re in the clear, a cold front can come sweeping in out of nowhere. So maybe it’s not so much that putting away our winter gear causes it to snow, but rather that we’re just tempting fate by assuming that winter is over before it really is.

Either way, I think it’s always a good idea to be prepared for anything when it comes to the weather. So maybe hold off on packing away your snow shovel or winter jacket just yet. And as for those snow tires, well, it might be worth keeping them on just a little while longer. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry, right?
