I woke up this morning, went to the window to go take my daily picture, and gasped! Snow! At that moment, it was just a light dusting, but it got better (worse?) as the day wore on.
We had an errand to run this morning; going to pick up my replacement suitcase because my old one couldn’t be fixed. The snow was coming down, sticking to the roads and everything! For a Southern gal, this is really exciting, and more than a little bit scary. I was bundled up like crazy, so that Astrid had to ask just what was I going to do for winter. I figure I’ll just double up on everything I wore today!
I have another errand to run this afternoon, and as I look outside the window, the sidewalks and streets are white, snow is accumulating on the roof tops and tree limbs. I’m just amazed at how different the landscape looks, so quickly. And I’m worried about my ability to adapt to this snowy wilderness! I want warmth back already!
In spite of all my whining, the outdoors isn’t really all that uncomfortable. The air is dry and the wind isn’t blowing, so it’s not too terrible if you’re bundled up. I can imagine that with rain and wind, it would get pretty miserable. In any case, I guess winter is actually here, and this is the beginning. My child was telling me yesterday that it was a nice high 60’s back home, getting to the mid 80’s during the day, and then back down. Those are the good days. 🙂
