No more snow...

     I was very excited last night because I was checking the weather forecast and they were predicting snow! I know that most adults don't get excited over snow because they visualize snow shovels, tire chains, and icy steps. But all I can think of is snow sculpting.
     Every year, I go outside and build crazy snowmen until my face and hands go numb. Last year, I built a pyramid, a sphinx, and this guy...
I loved this snowman. I was quite sad when he melted. It was kind of like when Tom Hanks lost Wilson the volleyball on the movie Cast Away. I kind of got attached.... but how could you not love a face like that?
     Anyway, at about 10 pm I looked outside and sure enough, there was snow! I was so happy and I couldn't wait to see Dylan's face in the morning. Unfortunately, I was unaware that when snow comes to Long Island from a southern-ish direction, it is always washed away with rain afterwards. Sadness...
Only when the snow comes from the North does it actually stick around. It does make sense when you think about it.
     So this morning I looked outside at my melted dreams of snowman sculpting, and I decided that I'm ready for spring. This has been a dull winter as far as snow goes, and my poor heart cannot take anymore disappointment.

  1. LOL only you would get so attached to a snowman that you compare him to Wilson! rofl! I agree with you about the snow, though. It's been so mild this year. It's kind of nice, but it also makes me sad cuz I was expecting quite a lot now that we're in Kansas. le sigh.
