Just when it was starting to feel like spring, too.
Yesterday morning, I woke up to a layer of thick, wet snow covering the outside world. Snow thick enough that, when I rolled my car window down, it stayed standing up. Snow wet enough that it stuck to my car as I tried to wipe it off so I could see where I was driving.
A lot of it has melted already–that’s one of the benefits of temperatures that hover around 0 C. Unfortunately, one of the downfalls of temperatures hovering around 0 C is that it’ll freeze overnight, leaving the roads slippery in the morning.
According to the radio yesterday afternoon, we’ll be seeing snowfalls until at least Tuesday. I’m going to go ahead and focus on the benefits: the pretty white coating on bare branches, the quick melt, and the knowledge that warmer weather will be here soon.
Because even with some snow and ice, I’m enjoying this a lot more than the approximately -25 to -35 C (without wind chill) days we were seeing a little over two weeks ago.
