I have been reacquainted with the new boots I bought last winter. If today’s weather is any indication, we will see a lot of each other for the next six months. Good thing I really like them.
It’s only November 10. Barely out of the single digits. Not long past Halloween and the earliest snowfall in my memory, back in 1991. This one is nothing compared to that blizzard, but it still looks plenty white out there.
I was content to stay inside as the flakes fell throughout the day. Working on my latest writing assignment seemed the perfect excuse to hole up and avoid the slippy slidy world out there.
But by late afternoon I just had to venture out in it all. Groceries for dinner were as good an excuse as any, and I opted to walk to the store. The world was hushed by the new layer of snow, and few vehicles were moving on our out-of-the-way road. It was easy to make believe it was mid-winter.
With temperatures promising to stay well below freezing for the remainder of the week, it doesn’t look like this snow is going to disappear any time soon. Rich is already chomping at the bit to strap on his rock skis and start the XC ski season. Honestly, I was hoping for a few more weeks of good running weather. But I may just have to ski a few loops around the golf course tomorrow instead. Today snow boots. Tomorrow ski boots. Why not?
