whatever the weather

Hey S. I know we said we'd go for a walk today but have you looked outside? It's belting down with snow. Let's go to the pool instead.

Ehhh? The pool? We can still walk. It's only snow.

Hmm, Ok......

S is from Wisconsin. All I know about that state is that it's where Little House in the Big Woods was set. And Ma and Pa and Laura get snowed in again and again and again.

Me? I'm from an island where people surf year round and we don't even get frost. I call 'Snow Day' every time the stuff sticks.

But I'm no piker so we headed out.


And it was actually really beautiful.

Freezing cold and the snow was battering my face but beautiful. And we walked on pristine snow and left the only tracks on the walking path.

Unsurprisingly, really.

But it was just as exciting as being the first person to leave footprints on the beach.

And you don't need to get up and out there half as early!
