Disappointing Weather

I was all hyped up for our first snowfall of the winter. Maybe it is all the stress of the last few days, but I was looking forward to snow. It was not predicted to be a lot – only 1 to 3 inches – but I had snow day plans!

I would wake to a soft layer of snow covering the walkways and clinging to the trees. The world would be a softer place today. I would enjoy my coffee with hubby while watching the birds leave their prints in the new-fallen snow. I would make a big pot of vegetarian chili while watching the snow fall. Then, the weather would warm up and the snow would slowly melt away.


I woke to a warmer day than predicted and no snow on the ground. Just rain. Well, if I am 100% accurate we did see a few flakes fall. The world does not seem softer and now making chili will not be near as much fun.

I needed a snow day. Or maybe I just wanted a snow day. Regardless, it didn’t happen and I am sorely disappointed.
