I laughed when I checked the weather report today on Yahoo. There it was bold as brass: the high temps, the low ones and the short description of the contents of the day (meterologically speaking) Blizzard. I guess I always associate that term with a bygone era, like the Little House on the Prairie books. Clearly, here in Colorado Springs, it is still an effective description! Truly, it is a little wild to see the snow blowing in a straight line. It is not really piling up on the ground because the wind is blowing too hard. It is definitely making a mess of things, though. I went to toss a bag of trash and I had to change my clothes because in the 6 seconds I was outside I was covered in snow.
I normally will profess to hate the snow, but I have decided perhaps I don't hate it, just strongly dislike. Usually I am angry because I have to cancel plans, or I have to deal with tracking around in it. I don't like to be cold, and I especially don't like to be cold and wet! But this week is Spring Break (poor kids!) so all my usual activities were cancelled already. I stocked up on necessities on Wednesday; so we have just been nice and cozy in our little house. It has actually been really pleasant. I made soup last night and we were all relaxed knowing there is nothing on our agenda. I will be honest and say that I wouldn't enjoy this all the time, or even more than once or twice a year. But, I know it is almost April and there aren't too many more weeks it will do this. Also, we needed a break so a weather-related cancellation wasn't unwelcome! So, as long as the sun shines tomorrow "let it snow, let it snow" today.
