There’s another snow storm on the way today. (ANOTHER SNOW STORM) And another one forecast for Saturday. We haven’t had a full five day school week since before Christmas. I even saw a statistic that said last year we had 3 inches of snow through January 31 and this year we had 48 inches.
Yes, it’s been a cold & snowy winter. But in all fairness, we’ve had some very mild winters the past few years. Yes, I’m getting a little tired of shoveling the snow and am seriously wondering how I’m going to get the snow off the bottom of the driveway when the piles are already up to my shoulders. But if it’s going to be cold, it might as well be covered in a beautiful blanket of white. And if it keeps snowing, the snow never has time to get all dirty & yucky looking.
This comic strip (that I often love because of his take on running & triathlons) perfectly sums up how I feel about winter:
At some point I’ll start to get tired of the snow & cold. And around that same time, things will start to melt and the weather will be warmer and I’ll revel in 40-50 degree days for running. And once I get tired of that, it will start to get nice & hot and just right for hitting the beach.
But for now, I’m actually looking forward to another night of falling snowflakes.
