So this weekend we are forecasted to have the first snow of the year. Normally first snow comes as a surprise in the middle of the night. When dawn breaks you are awed by the change and the virginal beauty of it. All quiet and hushed. No creature risking a noise to break the fairytale morning. This time we know it is coming. A winter storm warning is in effect all day Friday. They, the weather people, say that we are to get 6 inches to a foot! That’s a lot in one day. I am very excited. Like Christmas morning. I already plan on doing nothing! Watching LOTR and cuddled with a drink and a blanket. I was given an overtime shift Friday night but I think I can manage getting my truck into town by then. Hopefully all will go well. I will spend my weekend in warm comfort. Maybe I can make snow angels and snow men. (people?) It is the little things that make life enjoyable. I, myself, am hoping for a great white blizzard!!
