Snow days are for relaxing. Maybe.
Monday, March 03, 2014
Today should have been a lazy day. You know, sitting inside reading, under a blanket, sipping coffee or tea.
Ah but I pulled on my boots and bundled up for the 12ºF weather to clear off all the snow we had been promised. They were calling for twelve inches. That would be the biggest storm of the year. And we have had many snow events roll through this year.
And Weather Underground says we aren't done yet.
I got suited up before I even looked out the window.
Then I go tout there.
Do you know how it feels when you're promised twelve inches and you only get four?
Well, when it's snow, it feels pretty good.
And it was the fluffy kind on top of a base of ice and sleet. Easy to clear off. and since i am so thorough, I managed to get a good 90 minutes. Then I went in and grabbed a book and a blanket.
At one point, the clouds thinned enough for the sun to peek through. It was still 15ºF but somehow it felt good. I actually considered the possibility of bringing my trike out for a ride.
Then the moment passed and sanity returned.
