I'm Ready for Summer
This morning, I woke up to snow. Now, some of you might say that's typical, and it probably is in your part of the world. But in mine, snow is a treasure.
I'm a pretty good weather watcher. I know the weather people aren't always perfectly accurate, but we're talking weather here. An Act Of God! Somebody else has the power and it isn't the weather people.
I'd risen early to go to my workout. And while the dogs went out for their morning business was when I noticed what I first thought was rain, sleet, and ultimately, snow.
A little snow won't stop me. I have a four-wheel drive vehicle! I can put my car on the lean and mean streets and get anywhere.
This morning, I wound along the lake road to my friend's house. There were so few cars out. The street was coated in the white stuff. The snow was flying fast and furious. I even turned on the fog lamps.
I picked up my gal pal and as we turned on to the main street, we experienced thunder and lightning. Pretty exciting to be in a thundersnow.
I had to cross four small bridges and literally released my foot from the accelerator and let the car coast across. When we pulled into our parking spot at the gym, the instructor's car was the only one we noticed.
She held class just for us and another brave soldier.
What a difference an hour makes! In that small amount of time, the parking lot had turned to slush. The roads did too. The bridges were a tad icier.
Four hours later, everything was gone.
Just a typical winter's day in my town.
Are you ready for summer?
What's your favorite season?
