It’s a big, beautiful world out there. Please enjoy it responsibly.
Yesterday ran the gamut of winter precipitation. Snow? Check! Sleet? Check! Freezing rain? Double-check! On the one hand, days like this are inherently bad. Roads are slick and driving is dangerous; my car zigged when I wanted it to zag–twice–on my very short ride back from my job, and I got to watch someone turn lazy circles in their Volvo station wagon in an attempt to make a left out of a parking lot. He didn’t hit anything, so yay, and bonus! He was in a Volvo, so I knew he would be safe. But I digress. Even walking is unpleasant, because sidewalks are slick too, and every step has to be careful and slow. Besides, who wants to walk in freezing rain? I don’t like to be cold OR wet. This delivers both. Pass.
With all that said, sometimes a stroll outside in all that weather is worth it.
And today? It’s turning into one big slushy mess. At least we have this one moment, frozen. C’est la vie.
