As you might be able to tell from the title of this post, I was really struggling to come up with a topic for today. Fortunately, all I had to do was look out the window.
This has been the oddest winter, weather-wise. We had a bit of snow here and there in November and December, but it was almost always gone the next day. For most of the season so far, I’ve looked out my window at brown grass and bare trees. A stark change from the past couple years, when we had snow on the ground pretty much straight through from December until sometime in March. This year, we didn’t even have snow for Christmas.
But right now, it’s snowing. Of course it is, because I have to go somewhere.
I grew up in Maine. It snows a lot there, and since I took driver’s education in February, I learned to drive in bad weather. But that doesn’t mean I like it. Neither does the fact that I have a 4-wheel drive truck at my disposal. That’s the one reason I’ve been glad not to have much snow this winter. I’ve had a lot more driving than usual to do, and I’ve been able to get where I need to go.
But I have to admit, the snow is pretty to look at. And I feel like it’s really winter now.
So I’m off to clear off my truck and attempt the roads. Wish me luck!
