The sky was growing dark as I shoveled the front porch. I made a mental note to turn the outside lights on when I was finished. The way the snow obscured the sounds of passing cars seemed to make my thoughts more audible. Why are such decorative porches needed? Whoever takes advantage of them besides postal carriers, door-to-door salesman and that long lost love from high school? Seems it would be less hassle to put a few extra windows in place, include a mail slot/speaker and make the back door larger (for furniture). Portray suburbia more accurately.
