I read about a delightful sign on a church billboard. "If you are praying for snow, PLEASE STOP!!!
With my husbands health issues, he cannot man a shovel. So I'm elected. I can handle the snow OK. I do it in short spans of 10 or 15 minutes at a time. That works well on this old body but doesn't get it done too quickly. I swore after the ice storm I would not shovel again - I would just hibernate until spring. Then we got another snow storm!
This has been a winter to remember - not all pleasant memories either.
I know we laugh and tell our children we walked in blizzards, up hill both ways! That may be an exaggeration but we did walk to school in all weather. In my little northern Ohio town, school was never canceled. Sometimes a bus or two for rural children couldn't get through but school went on and they had to make up the work of the day. That was as close as we came to school closing. My walk to school was nearly a mile. I went home for lunch too and walked back within an hour. What I remember most are the ice storms. In my home town, trees line both sides of the streets and create an arch over the street. When they are covered with ice and the sun comes out, it looks like a beautiful fairy land.
So I know winter can be beautiful but I've seen enough, Thank you.
How about spring and daffodils?
