We’re at that time of year now when we get a bit of sunshine, warmth, and we even take a layer off. It’s starting to feel like spring! Then it snows and we (I) get a bit disappointed. It happens every year, repeatedly, until it stops snowing, because we’re so excited about those sunny spring days…we forget we’re still in winter.
Today’s mantra, It’s still winter. It’s still winter. It’s still winter.
I haven’t seen this much snow dump on Fernie in months. I wasn’t complaining but I was expecting snow to return and what good timing – Easter weekend and end of season parties are about to begin.
I thought for sure Rod’s truck would get stuck there but, Rod being the skilled snow man that he is, didn’t sweat it for a second. There’s a lot of snow here now. We went from 4 degrees and hardly any snow to -25 and snow up to our knees in about 24 hours. It’s so fluffy and a breeze to shovel but once it warms up a bit, that snow is going to be hard and heavy. Thank goodness our plow truck is out of the auto shop. That’s our update.
I feel a lot like these leaves on this snow covered tree…just holding on, as hard as I can, to fall. I just gotta let go because winter is inevitable and I should embrace it, like the rest of this town seems to be doing.
