Yup, I'm nuts. But, some of us Northerners really love our snow. I have been waiting all winter for us to get a real snow, not these piddling three or four inches that we have been getting.
By the beginning of the week, it looked like we were going to finally get lucky. And, by yesterday, it was a dead certainty. I checked my Coleman lantern, got out my cold weather sleeping bag, and made sure I had plenty of food in the pantry. AOK, I was ready to go.
Yesterday morning the view out of my window looked like this. Just a soft little snow falling.
I waited all day, but it was still just that soft little snow. By evening, though, the snow and the wind had picked up.
All night, the snow picked up in intensity. This morning that same view looked like this.
It's still snowing, but less intensely now. The flakes are big and soft and it's really beautiful coming down. Sigh, not a "blinger" of a storm, but at least a respectable amount. I didn't have to use the Coleman lantern, or the sleeping bag, as we didn't lose electricity, but I can't wait to go out and play in the snow. I have to do that pretty soon, because the birdfeeder is covered with snow, and the birds can't get any seed.
You see, this is why I retired, so I could either sit inside, safe and warm, or go outside and mess around in the snow. I just don't have to DRIVE in it, along with all of the idiots out there.
