I'm not ready for snow ! (A whiny, stream-of-consciousness post.)
It snowed last week. Tuesday, I think it was. Wet, thick, sticky, heavy snow.
It stuck to the power lines, the trees, the satellite dish (rats! *), the car....
Wendy, Buffy and I, slogged up the road, to check out the park at the end of the street. The dogs walked in the less-snowy track left by a truck, that had recently slewed its way up the street.
The park did look very pretty.
As it was late in the day, around 4:30, the light was fading. Arrrgggghhhhh. I hate that ! 4:30 and getting dark. Pulllleeeeeze. I can deal with the cold, but does the sun have to set so blankity-blank early ? Rhetorical question folks. Anyhoo, my camera flashed as I took pictures, and I rather fancied the effect. Yeah, it was dark enough for the camera to freakin' flash.
Clearly I have some winter-darkness issues I need to work through.
Get a grip on yourself Sybil. It wasn't that bad. The temperature was just on freezing, or perhaps a degree above. Hence the stickiness of the snow.
My garden arbour looked pretty.
My car didn't.
Kait and I decided not to shovel our driveway. The forecast called for it to turn to rain overnight.
"It'll all be gone in the morning", I said.
It was three days before the damn stuff melted away.
I'm just not ready for winter ... yet.
* Satellite dish covered in snow = no TV tonight.
