Under the Hat: Good for the Goose

Posted: Updated:

  I'm being reminded this week that what is good news for some is not always good news for everyone, whether we can do anything about it or not. 

  Something about a goose and a gander comes to mind.

  This time it's the one subject in which everyone has an interest and most have an opinion. 

  Of course I'm talking about the weather, and at this time of year that means talking about snow.

   For those of us who drive through the stuff and shovel it off our walkways, the snowfall total these past two seasons has been a blessing.  That's because the total hasn't totaled much at all, freakishly low numbers given that we're a great lakes region.

  As John Last pointed out this week, that warm feeling is not great for everybody. 

 The good folks at Peak ‘n Peek Ski Resort for instance have been struggling to string together enough cold nights to make snow.  They've done it so far but the real test is coming up at the end of the month because Christmas week is naturally one of the busiest of the season due to vacations and kids home from college. 

  Then there are those who make their living, or at least extra income plowing lots. 

Oh, and what about those who enjoy snowmobiling, or snow shoes or any other snow activity that involves going out and playing in the stuff. 

 So whatever falls from the sky this season is what it is, and we should make the best of it whether we be geese or ganders. 

Of course, most of them have probably already flown south for the winter.
