This was the view from my front door this morning. It’s been s@#*ing (I consider it a 4-letter word of the foulest language before mid December) on and off since Friday, so the world was already white, but today it began in earnest. It’s been a heavy, wet snow that is supposed to turn to rain tonight and then freeze. I’m hoping it doesn’t.
This is more like January weather and we’re not ready, mentally, emotionally, or physically. We’re still trying to accomplish outdoor tasks that must be done to prepare for winter weather that we couldn’t get to with football every Saturday in September and October.
So while it may be pretty (says the people who don’t have to drive in it!), it is much too soon, especially since it felt like summer never really arrived and fall weather in August. You’ll hear me mention it again – more than once. When we have 6 months of winter with no breaks in the dark, gray, and dreary days, I might whine about it a little. But I try to balance it – so the upside is cozy blankets, a mug of tea, curling up with a good book. Just not yet!
