Wait, wait... you see, that sentence right there is indicative of my attitude on winter, and it needs to change because I live in Northern Minnesota where it is winter for about 5 months out of the year and unless I want to go bananas I have to change something, and I can't move, and I can't make it warmer, so the only thing I can change is my attitude. Instead of saying "dumped a shitload of snow on us," I should say something like, "The yard is covered with a beautiful blanket of fresh snow! It's so wonderful! I love it!" but clearly, that would be a lie. And if I said that you would just think I was being a smartass and you'd avoid me because who wants to be around a sarcastic smartass? Nobody.
So if I can't be excited about spending the next 5 months shivering, sliding, falling, and avoiding the outdoors at all costs, at least I can be neutral. So I will start this post again, and I will try not to be negative.
Winter has begun.
Driving on the wet, slippery roads
SUCKS MAJOR ASS proves to be a challenge, but what a view! I can just picture that loaded tree falling on our powerline and being without electricity for a week a horse-drawn sleigh, warm blankets, horse farts, and hot cocoa!
