Winter Wonderland

There’s snow on the ground, SNOW! I mean S-N-O-W! I can’t remember the last time I saw snow. I’m telling people that it’s been 3 years since I last had to deal with that stuff, but I don’t actually remember, it could be 4 years or more. But the interesting thing is that snow is not freaking me out the way I thought it would, in fact, I kind of like it.

The first couple of days I was here in Colorado I was freezing every minute. On Tuesday I had to take 3 hot showers just to warm up enough to not shiver constantly (and YES I was wearing proper clothing). I was about to go buy some electric socks. But then on Wednesday morning it was snowing when I woke up. I lay in bed, cozy and warm, and watched these fat flakes fall out of the sky. And it was OK.

I’ve had a few moments of being chilly since then, but I’m no longer deeply cold. People here are telling me that I just needed a couple of days for my blood to thicken. Don’t like the sound of that! I’m just grateful that I’m not shivering anymore.

    Yeesh. Snow. I just feel like it should be warming up, for Pete’s sake. I mean, come on. It’s almost April.

    I know it, but this is spring in Colorado. Wet snow one day and then 70°F the next day.

    I leave tonight for Cancun, am taking that overnight Frontier flight (you know the one).
