Wednesday Words...Frank and the snow


Keep shoveling..
Weathermen in the Northeast called the latest snowstorm an anomaly.  Frank was called in to the warehouse to forklift pallets of salt for the snow plows.

He had wished to be part of the snow plow guys, but he wasn’t ambidextrous which was great help in such a job and meant better money.  Frank continued to deliver bags and bags of salt.

Finally tow trucks were able to pull abandoned cars to the impound lots, including Frank’s new sports car.   Always deleterious in care of his belongings, Frank discovered heavy salt residue mixed with icy snow covering the car had eaten through the snazzy black paint, creating zebra stripes in the paint.


Frank shook his head sadly.  At least he had been faithful to pay his car insurance.

  3. It's seven degrees here this morning. I look at two feet of snow and wonder if it can ever melt. At least my car has a garage.

  4. I'm SO glad I've never experienced anything like this year's snow. However, in the tropics, we do have to deal with the salt air and things rusting out much faster than they do in the states.

  6. People who live where it snows a lot usually don't have sports cars. They are hard to find in the drifts.

    1. Frank was a few bricks shy of common sense.

  7. Perhaps Frank could leave the car in zebra stripes, he'd never have trouble finding it in a parking lot!
    We have a few zebra/tiger striped cars here in Adelaide, one of my sisters in law was once married to an artist who did that kind of work.
