A Fig Tree’s First Snow
I actually did not dig the snow literally or figuratively. It’s always unpredictable and I was at work when the forecast kept changing to expect snow earlier and earlier. I’m anxious about ending up stuck in traffic if there is a huge weather meltdown so if things look sketchy I will usually go home early or if I’m already home, I will stay home.
I can usually do some work from home so it’s not the end of the world but it disrupts my schedule.
Normally, this week would be pre-season for soccer but we’re remodeling our stadium — I have photos but no time to look right this second — No home matches until April 14. I was only a little bit sorry to miss out on sitting in a plastic chair in freezing temperatures to see the guys.
The next day I walked to the bus stop rather than drive to the park-n-ride. The sun was out. The snow was still fresh. It took over 2 hours to get to work and was a giant pain but it was SO PRETTY it was worth it.
I have just made a quick photostream of my photos from that day: Snow Day February 2018
I have finally hit my groove again on the book. Well, I say that cautiously. I’ve had better grooves but I’m doing better than I have been. I still have a few parts written out of sequence that are not counted in this total. I’m still behind where I want to be but have enough to stave off total panic.
I miss my snow. Finally weather broke and we have had some mornings of
36 degrees. Everyone is crying how cold it is. Damn I felt -40 in Wichita.
That was wind chill, do you get much wind and wind chill factor. I miss being BAD and mixing a drink or opening wine and walking the area…
