YAY! Snow Day!
Rats! Off to work . . . Slowly . . . Cautiously!
Maybe as bad as the “Blizzard of 73” . . . Maybe . . .
I’m in the gold; fortunately not in the orange!
Which view of the winter activity matched your area?
Why does perspective or point of view matter?
Can it change over time? Can you “choose” your response?
What’s your prediction for the winter?
Thank you, Betsy, Beth, Deb, Kathleen, Kelsey, Lanny, Melanie, and Stacey for this weekly forum from Two Writing Teachers. Check out the writers, readers and teachers here.
I have to admit I DO NOT miss winter at all! I am going to be going back to Berlin in 2 1/2 weeks and not sure how I will cope. My perspective on snow and other wintry weather is negative!
An inch or so vs a literal dump truck – no comparison unless it was a great excuse to stay inside and read a book! “Fretting” about the predictions made it hard to focus on the work I did need to complete. Such odd combinations of weather. We don’t typically have our first measurable snow until Dec. 6th and we’ve already had two . . . That kind of winter! 🙂
As a kid I loved the snow…sledding…jumping in snow piles…building snowmen and snow forts…pushing my little sister (yes, I did this) into the snow…snow days. Now, I am not a fan of snow…shoveling…cleaning off the car…slick roads…drivers who don’t know how to drive in winter weather. Although we had a snowstorm earlier this month we now seem to be in a rainy pattern…rain every tow or three days. Oh well, weather is one thing we have no control over.
Ah, at different ages and stages the view changes. May have to add more stanzas to cover that!
And yes, silly weather!
No snow here yet. Ha! We had some last year on Dec.16th. Really! In South Louisiana. This climate change is quite frightening if you stop to think about it. Stay warm. Stay safe.
I can’t imagine snow in Louisiana although we saw snow in San Antonio for a couple of Christmases! Inside activity is the best! ❤
Oh dear….this I am just not ready for! As you will see from my SOL today, I am happy to see the snow on the ski mountain, but when it makes its appearance here in the valley, that means shoveling, snow blowing, and scraping icy windshields. It won’t be long now….
Your fudge over the weekend has me thinking about Christmas baking. The list has shortened over the year. I need to think of two or three items! ❤
A little snow today… but we had an ice storm that came right at morning rush hour and gave us a “weather day” off before Thanksgiving. That’s never happened since I have been teaching.
I infinitely prefer even a foot of snow to ice especially when the temp is at that refreeze, refreeze, refreeze stage. Just wait. The weather will change!
