My history with SNOW in one word: DYNAMIC!
As a KID is was all good: outdoor play, snow days, fires in our fireplace, hot chocolate, reading in bed for hours. The pace of life slowed down unexpectedly. Yes, all good!
As a YOUNG ADULT with a car: MIXED! It was good still to wake up to the beauty of the world around me, snow days continued to be wonderful especially jogging in a light storm. Of course as high school drama director with a play every year during the winter months, there were play rehearsals and performances that had to be tweaked but it was good for building my problem-solving muscle. BUT I was arrogant and refused to let a good winter storm in the Catskills hold me down and back. So I would drive in almost ANYTHING. Big mistake! There were snow accidents. Nothing tragic for me or the other person, but my cars took some tough blows.
One day I did grow up but it took a long time, TOO LONG!
MATURITY: I have come to LOVE SNOW as a watcher, as a walker, but I don’t DO SNOW anymore, not in a car. I watch weather reports carefully and refuse to drive in it. REFUSE as a driver or passenger. I have lost my arrogance on the road and instead I create white knuckles. Even Tuvia has been a bit more respectful.
So today we are having one of those lovely unofficial snow days and here’s my view of the world as I get ready to exercise with Billy Blanks and his TAE BO workout!
But there’s always tomorrow. Do we meet or do we postpone? Nothing official yet.
