A Little Bit of Winter

When one absently looks out the window on November first, one does not expect to see snow, but that is exactly what I saw. So much in doubt was I, that I slipped on my shoes, opened the front door, and stepped out onto my front step. I didn’t even bother to put on a coat, but a couple of seconds later, that is something I wish I had done.

This is rather early for snow. I had expected it to snow once or twice in November, but I really didn’t think it would be November first. Covid cancelled Halloween was just yesterday. I know it won’t last, and nobody should be upset by this. It just seems a bit early.

As unprepared as I am for Winter, I do rather like it and I like writing about it. I couldn’t live without at least a little bit of Winter in my life.

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.

  1. Whereas the weather was so perfectly autumn on the west coast that there were many people enjoying the waterfront on, in and off the water. A flotilla of sailboats made my day. The one person swimming was astonishing considering it is, after all, a Canadian November. I think I can live quite well without any winter in my life.

      You’ve got a good point. I would miss my students reactions though. They come to class and exclaim how cold it is, then someone tells them it is going to get colder.

    It was snowing in MA 2 days before Halloween! Makes me wonder about moving there next year, but anything’s better than wildfires.
