Well, its snowing again.
The thing that concerns me, is that they, the all knowing weather prognosticators, said it appears that we would get a ‘trace to an inch’. The way it is falling out there now, it better stop soon to remain in that prediction. Even my computer that for a long while after it started snowing had a ‘stopping soon’ notification across the bottom. Now it reads, ‘light snow’. Even it gave up on staying with the trace prediction. Snow is pretty, it changes any landscape into a winter wonderland. I just hate that it has to be so flipping cold.
I have been about to freeze all day. I only went outside to bring in firewood or to walk up and get my mail. Otherwise I have spent the day trying to get warm. My son came in from work, took one look at me, shook his head and walked away. Even he has grown weary of telling me to stop being cold. My being so cold is really kind of sad, knowing that the temperatures we have are nowhere near as cold as some areas. It lets me know that I really couldn’t handle any area colder than this.
The dogs have spent most of the day inside, only going out when necessary or when my son came in from work. They have to greet him and welcome him home after all. Then get back inside just as quickly. I’ve seen the cats playing out back, but I doubt they are out in the falling snow.
I’m sitting here now, wondering what we’re going to find in the morning. It doesn’t bother me so badly now that I don’t have to try to get to work and I have all the groceries I need. There are others though who must get out in it, like my son, and their safety is on my mind and heart.
Right now, my hope is that there is no one out there in this cold night trying to be warm. I hope that no one has left their dogs or cats outside without shelter.
Right now, I hope that anyone who does not absolutely have to be out on the roads, are not out on the roads.
I am also more than ready for Spring and warm weather and flowers..
