Point of View

Mother Nature dumped a shitload of snow on us last weekend.  

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. 

A huge bullshit load of wet sticky Snow fell last weekend!

My socks got wet just looking outside at the white shit stuff.
 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! 

What a beautiful picture of our yard, that I won't be able to enjoy unless I spend 15 minutes putting on ugly snowpants, boots, an itchy stupid hat and then when I come back in I have to change pants and socks anyway because the snow ALWAYS gets in no matter what.  I can't wait to get out and enjoy it!  (that's just a lie.)

I wonder which one of those big beautiful pine trees will get bogged with so much snow that it falls and crashes a giant hole in our house in the middle of the night? 

Goddammit, Winter is here!
