Dirty snow

Dirty snow

When I found out that I was moving somewhere that it snowed all the time I was like a little kid with dreams. Dreams of the white fluffy stuff that I could tromp in and throw and play in. Little did I know that over the season the snow never goes away and melts. It sits there and collects dirt. It collects salt. It is just something that you start to ignore as if it weren't there at all. The other day driving home I noticed that it is downright ugly.

Aha, the horrible truth about snow at last. The piles of ugly, salted brown stuff is the very reason my parents moved us from Wisconsin to Arizona.

Since I don't think you'll be moving any time soon I recommend a soothing mediation practice. Wrap yourself in a soft blanket, shut your eyes (not while driving) and repeat the mantra Spring...Spring...Spring over and over. Ahhhh…
