“I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow”

January 27th, 2011


Ok, those lyrics from the song in the movie White Christmas might be a bit of an exaggeration for me … I don’t LONG to shovel, necessarily, but I do love snow.  (The way I fell in it when I was shoveling last night… you’d think I “longed to wash my hands, my face and hair” with it, though).

I have so much fun this time of year helping with Operation Snow Crew, especially during the Get Up and Go Show.   I love snow, so that is a big part of the excitement for me.  I’ve been known to run outside when  we get the first flakes of the winter.     I also enjoy the change in schedule,  getting up “dark and early” and heading home early, too.  It’s fun  spending time with Fred and Lisa and the other staff in our early morning silliness,   going on the air with the DJ’s once in a while, talking with the leadership from local schools,  churches and businesses, and getting the word out for families and individuals in the listening area.    It’s a challenge to see how quickly we can get the announcements out on the air and on the web.  Often times we are updating while Fred and Lisa are mid-way through the list with chats from the office to the studio.  🙂  It definitely can get interesting.

We post the cancellations on the web and read them on the air.   Remember you can see the Operation Snow Crew list anytime it’s active.  If you’ve noticed that your school, church or local business or organization is not reporting to WJTL, please let them know that we’d love to include them in our listings, too.

Enjoy the snow!

    I am glad that someone enjoys winter. I like snow, and I LOVE snow driving (just as long as there aren’t crazy people driving next to me – only room for one crazy). But I will be happy when the summer is back.

    Thanks for your work,

    I am always amazed at the beauty of the snow. Like Christ washing us clean and pure by His death on the cross, so the snow blankets our surroundings covering the ugliness. I am always reminded of this lesson when the snowflakes begin to fall and shroud us in a white winter wonderland.
