The Texture Of Things

Hurry! It won’t last!

November 8th, 2007

Or maybe it will. It’s Michigan, so it’s hard to tell how long any weather pattern will last.

But for right now! It’s SNOWING! W00t!

You know, for me, this means looking outside and shivering to myself while daydreaming about football and cocoa (or beer). Today, in a completely uncharacteristic impulse, it means the tot wants to go outside and “touch the snow”. This is a change of tune from previous winters, so although I am loathe to leave my pajamas until I have to teach tonight, I will indeed take her out so she can chase snowflakes. Because I’m awesome like that.

Oh. Update. The tot just announced that she’s sad. The snow is so small. (It’s only light flurries.) “We gotta make it bigger!” she is shouting.

That’s sweet. She has no memory of last winter or of how snow often threatens but doesn’t always stick. It’s brand new for her again, and I’m a little surprised at myself for not anticipating that. Boy, every day is an adventure around here.

    Down here, when (and if) it snows, it is usually preceded by two or there days of freezing rain. So you have one or two inches of snow on top of a sheet of ice. Then the snow freezes and then you have a white hunk of concrete for several days, especially if the pile is in the shade. So we only have a few hours to play in the snow, and a week of auto wrecks and broken bones from the ice. Yea, summer!
