let's be honest. i don't watch the news. i don't read the newspaper. so yes, i'm always a little caught off guard with the change in weather. i got home late last night and cousin lindsey told me it's supposed to be 40 degrees the next two days...and rainy rainy. oh yeah, and it's supposed to snow.

ok. i like snow. i do. when i'm in a cabin, and there's a pot of hot soup on the stove. movie playing. puzzle building. hot chocolate. wool socks. i even like to head out on the snowmobile. pull me around on a sled. make a snow angel.
but let's talk about real life. shoveling sidewalks. slipping in parking lots. scraping ice and snow off your car every morning. in your work clothes (aka open toed heels). driving around in gloves. speaking of driving. DRIVING. i am a distracted driver. snow does not help me. ever. i hate driving in snow.
i guess the first step is for me to purchase a snow scraper thingy. maybe i hate scraping so much because i've been using my drivers lisence for the past few years. brrrrr. that can freeze your fingers right off. i think i've had this mentality that if i actually buy a scraper, then i am accepting winter.
i think i have decided (like i decide every year) that long term i will live in warm climate and travel to the snow. done and done.
i love the desert.
