Thursday we were greeted by Winter Storm Cleon (who names these things? CLEON? Seriously?) who made sure that our first snowfall of the season was a real doozy. It started out with some freezing rain & sleet (grooooooss) on Thursday, but Friday was like being in a snowglobe. Fluffy white stuff everywhere. The roads were pretty sketchy, so we waited until Saturday to venture out of our warm apartment. We still managed to accidentally step in snow drifts over our knees, but at least my car is still in one piece.
I love snow. I hate the cold, and apart from Christmas, I'm not a huge fan of winter; I'm a cold-natured person, so winter seems especially cruel to me. I figure, though, if it's going to be cold anyway, it can at least be pretty. So I'll take it.
