Are you tired of snow?

Des Moines, Iowa -- My three year old daughter asked the other day, "Papa, when is the snow going to go bye-bye?" That is a great question. I am originally from Tennessee. It would snow there but then melt pretty quickly. I can't remember a snow that lasted for more than a week. I am just not used to seeing snow for this long. I am tired of the snow. Don't get me wrong. I like seeing the snow when it first falls and everything has that "sparkle" to it. But after a while...I have a speed bump of ice at the bottom of the driveway where the city plowed the streets and deposited a nice sized layer of road salt, slush, and ice. "They" say it is melting. I think it will be here until the state fair.
