The wind is still howling and you can barely see across the street. I'd call that a blizzard.
We're in the middle of our fourth snowstorm in the last 10 days.
I say snowstorm and not blizzard because the winds are not a sustained 35 mph...just 30. Like it makes THAT much of a difference. The wind is still howling and you can barely see across the street. I'd call that a blizzard.
But you know what? As weird as it sounds, I can honestly say I'm starting to get used to these storms.
I know. Weird.
I think its because I've resigned myself to the fact that its going to be cold here in Grab-Your-Lasso for awhile...and I'm comforted by the fact that on weekends we can head down the mountain to where its warmer. As long as its not snowing.
That's not so bad...really.
Besides...this summer will be AWESOME!
It doesn't get much above 85 here, couple that with the low humidity and I say its PERFECT summer weather. So perfect, no one around here has central air or even window air conditioners.
So, while you my bloggy friends, will be melting in the summer heat and humidity, I will be sitting under a tree, reading a book and not even breaking a sweat! :)
I'll put up with a few more winter storms for that! Besides, they're kind of pretty...when you're not out standing on your front porch taking video for all our low-lander bloggy friends! )
Enjoy! And send me warm thoughts...and maybe some hot chocolate. ;>)
