It might be raining, but seeing the pictures Miriam has sent from NYC, I can confirm we made the right decision to stay away from snow. Say what you want about the quality of life New England, the culture of New York or the dynamic political scene of Washington DC.
Wait, let’s strike that last location and stay far far away from there..
I don’t miss the snow.
Specifically, I don’t miss shoveling snow. Or driving on slippery roads with people who think 4-wheel drive = 4-wheel stop. I might actually miss those biting cold days when the sun blazes and the snow is so cold it squeaks for the pleasure of sitting inside where it is toasty warm and I can admire it from the distance of my couch and comforter.
We are having more rain. It is enough that the creek in the local park is running briskly. I can hear the waterfall from our driveway. No chance of flooding for us, we are completely out of the risk zone, but it the music the water makes as it rushes across the rocks is soothing me to sleep.
I thought about errands today, then elected to stay home this morning only venturing out on a short run this afternoon before going to friends for dinner. So it is all quiet here for the moment.
