So. We're in the midst of one of those winter weeks where it . . . snows for days.
I'm not talking about a blizzard here. Or even a major storm. Nothing to shut down the schools or anything. Just a near-constant, gentle snowfall . . . that adds up after a few days.
It's just winter in Michigan.
Typical for February.
Nothing to get riled up about.
And I thought about how grateful I am, in the midst of snow for days . . . because:
- The snow is beautiful. Our otherwise dreary winter landscape is much improved with a nice frosting of snow. Everything looks fresh and bright and a bit magical.
- I have all the right apparel for managing snow and cold: a warm jacket, wool hats and scarves and mittens, snow boots. I am toasty-warm.
- In my trusty, all-wheel drive Subaru Outback (fitted with new tires this year -- bonus!), I can navigate winter roads with ease -- and go anywhere I want.
C'mon, winter. Show me what you got! (Just be sure to wrap things up by the end of month. M'kay?)
