This morning when we woke up, snow was predicted. The temperature was 30 degrees, and there were heavy clouds, and before we knew it, there it was…the light rain became…snow!
For a while it couldn’t make up its mind to sleet or snow, but then it decided to snow. Soft, fluffy, flakes drifting down and actually sticking, making the streets, our gnomes, and everything white….Or at least sort of white.
We needed to make a trip to the Whole Foods a few blocks away, and it took quite a while to get there. The sidewalks were icy and slippery, so we walked mostly on the crunchy grass. Parking lots, with their expanses of asphalt, were scary and we went slowly, like awkward baby penguins.
Once we got back in from the market, we decided to enjoy the weather from INSIDE. I don’t mind being cold, or even wet, but I don’t want to fall and break anything…that would spoil Christmas!
Of course, the same kids who play with tiny drones and frisbees in the summer were out in the snow, scooping and scraping to get enough snow to throw at each other. It was fun to watch them, from INSIDE!
