It finally snowed! I’ve been waiting all winter, and was beginning to lose hope. I love the snow, the winter, the cold, the icicles hanging off our back porch. It reminds me of when I was little, and it snowed all winter long. We would play outside, dig snowforts in the piles that were left from when Dad shoveled the driveway, and watch the snowplows race up and down our street.
I didn’t dare say anything when everyone else was giddy with the sunshine and warm temperatures, but waking up in the morning to a world blanketed in sparkling white certainly made my day.
The snow stuck around for a few days, but it’s gone now. The sunshine melted it away. Now we’re going back to the typical Cincinnati winter – snow, rain, sleet, freezing rain – hovering right around freezing so the water never knows what it’s expected to do. But I do hope for a few more snows before the winter is through.
