As I trudged out into the rain to grab my newspaper from my driveway, I did a double take. Why are there two newspapers waiting for me?
The first was no surprise; it was today's paper. The date on the second paper? December 16th! It surfaced on the grass to the side of my driveway. That's a sure sign that we had a very snowy early winter. That almost month-old paper must have been buried in snow - both fallen and plowed. It was wrapped in two plastic bags and was dry and readable (even though reading old news wasn't on my list of things to do this morning!).
Funny, I don't even remember a missed paper delivery. I must have called and had it re-delivered.
