The snow was bad enough here to close the schools yesterday, today and tomorrow. However, if this wasn’t the case, I wonder if my son would have a similar conversation tomorrow as he waited for the bus.
We have a blizzard warning in Indiana today (February 13, 2007). Everyone is staying put and watching the snow pummel us. As soon as the wind and the snow dies down, I’m sure my kids will try to get out there and have some fun. After all, school is closed. I can just imagine this scene happening somewhere in the Midwestern US today.
If you live in colder, snowy climates, do you remember the time you transitioned from loving the snow because of all the fun things to do and dreading it because you would have to drive in it? I remember the first time I drove in freezing rain. I tapped the brakes and my car immediately made a 180 degree turn. It scared me to death. I wanted to leave the car where it was, grab a sled and forget the whole driving thing.
That desert of time between Christmas and Valentine’s day is a time when a lot of people do some searching. Luckily, I’ve already found love. But I remember those cold winter days. I’d shed a tear if it wouldn’t freeze to my cheek.
It’s getting cold here. I was thinking about the poor souls with convertibles. It’s a shame you can’t use them in an Indiana winter… unless you’re a snowman.
