I don’t ask for much, I’m pretty easy please
but I want enough snow to at least cover the leaves…
It hasn’t snowed here nearly enough for me, and it’s almost Christmas. We had some “warmer” weather recently and although it was nice to have the milder temps, it melted all the lovely snow we had. Then the other day it rained. Rained, in December, in Minnesnowta. Sigh… if all that rain had been snow, it would have been a beautiful, magical, amazing winter wonderland around here. And I for one, want that. At least for Christmas, then it can melt if it wants to.
I was out running errands the other day in that rain. There’s nothing more unpleasant than running errands in the rain. Now don’t get me wrong, I actually love the rain, and it was foggy out too, and I adore fog, but not in the winter, in the winter I want SNOW, especially at Christmas time. And even as potentially hazardous as the driving might have been, I would have much rather been running those errands driving around in the snow. Heck… isn’t that what 4-wheel drive is for? And besides, if you’re gonna get all wet while out running errands, it may as well be from some festive, pretty, white, wet snow. 😉
I was wishing so much that all that rain was snow, and guess what happened… after that long day of running errands in the rain, I awoke the next morning to find snow on the ground! It was so lovely, and how fun is it that I got my wish!? Hey, wishes can be powerful things!
But I think I need to wish just a little bit harder, because it wasn’t quite enough snow for a true white Christmas ~ as you can see above, it barely covered the leaves. There isn’t any snow in the forecast between now and Christmas either, so I may need to have a talk with the weatherman…
“Please Sir, I want some more.” 😀
