We asked for it, and the snow finally came! And now that it’s here, I’m remembering all the reasons a snowy day makes me want to stay in bed. Scraping the car, for one, and cold feet and a cold me for another. But none of those reasons can top the single reason I have to get up and out, and that’s making tracks in all this fresh powder! And once I’m up and at ‘em, even the things that make me grumble at snowfall start to make me smile. For instance:
Slushy, crappy roads. Yeah, they can make the morning commute troublesome, slow, even heart-stopping, but I like it, since it kind of looks like we’re driving on cookie dough.
Scraping the car. It’s a great workout! With a particularly intense de-icing, you discover several muscles that you didn’t know you had. Plus, it keeps you warm and peering through the tiny hole you've scraped makes real driving more like a video game!
Slippery snowy sidewalks and parking lots. They’re actually pretty fun if you’re ready for them. Get creative and practice your triple axels or arabesques, or just enjoy a feeling that’s really unlike any other. It’s hard to think of anything like walking on snow.
And the reason we put up with all that?
Yep, that’s a fair trade off.
