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.
