When it’s Winter Outside

The weather forecasters were right for once and we got a ton of snow. It has been coming down all day from late morning until night.  While you read this blog Sunday morning, I will have donned my boots and I will be outside shovelling.  And strictly for your information, I will be doing it old school.  I do not have a snow blower or riding lawnmower with snowplough attachment.

So, if I am grumbling, what in the world could be Today’s Perfect Moment? Never fear, I do have one.  As the early morning sun gave way to the daylong snowfall, I was inside spending a dating day with the girlfriend.  We had some delicious food looking out at the accumulating snow.  We watched a mediocre movie as the snowdrifts formed.  We ate cappuccino frozen yoghurt while traffic slowed to a near standstill.  While people clutched their coats even closer to keep the wind from penetrating, we were toasty warm and watching it all through the windows.


Sadly, I had to take a bus home from all of that and I had to venture out into the snowy wonderland. It was so bad that I had to walk on the road and I realized that my cool charcoal grey, almost black jacket really wasn’t effective for the dark and snowy night.  I think I am going to have to get a brighter one for my safety.

    Get a reflective vest (avail. at a home improvement store)… you can store it in the inner pocket of your normal jacket and pull it out only when you need it. Can’t beat it for safety.

    Victorians wear those light-up armbands. Ravers at heart!
