There are people who think that summer is better than winter. They are wrong. Even though I think winter is far superior to summer, a girl can only take so much.
This winter, my new hometown has had record snow fall of 56″ so far. I recognize that there are people who would call this a “mild winter”. The difference is the places where it is normal to get over 5 feet of snow per year are prepared for it. They have a plan of where to put the snow. They have the equipment to deal with this. We do not.
I like snow, but have learned this year that I do not love snow unconditionally. There are very specific conditions under which I like snow.
– It must stick to the areas around me that don’t include the road, trees that might fall, and cars.
– It can stick to the roof, but only if it doesn’t create an avalanche to smash things beneath it.
– If it is a place I am going to walk, snow can be there, but it cannot be deeper than the height of my foot (causing cold wet feet).
I am finished with the snow for this year and I hope that mother nature agrees with me. Instead of focusing on how much I don’t want snow, I’ve opted to look forward to spring.You might have noticed the change in my header. I am also starting to think about planting a garden and what I want to grow. I am hoping that visualizing Spring will make it come faster.
Do you prefer summer or winter? Is there a limit?
