imagine my relief

I think I’ve mentioned that I live at Suncrest. And I think I’ve mentioned that I’ve mentioned that I live at Suncrest. But I’ve only got so many clever openings, sometimes I have to make do.
Suncrest is awesome. It’s kind of like a high class township. Like District 9.
Suncrest, as I think I’ve mentioned, sits at about 6,000 feet astride the ridge that divides Salt Lake County from Utah County. A 4 mile road drops down each side, north and south.
Our winters can be a bit harsher than the average winter for the average valley dweller.
I think that’s the last of the staccato descriptive sentences I’ll use for a while.
For example (an example of our winters, not of staccato sentences), this is a typical scene at my house during winter:
I think it’s safe to say we Suncrestians know how to deal.
So how grateful were we when the city decided to put a fancy electronic sign at the bottom of our hill to “advise” us on road and snow conditions?
Um. Thanks for the tip.
Seriously. We LIVE up there. We are the only people who live up there. Who do they think that “advisory” is for? It’s winter. It’s snowing. And, now we’ve got a big sign to remind us that the snow falling on our windshields is real.
Imagine my relief.
