October 12, the day it snowed

Sitting at work, with my cup of coffee to my right and my blog open on my laptop instead of work, I am mostly trying to think of a way to describe what happened this morning. Upon leaving my condo, I was confronted with a bully that seems to only come around once a year.

I often make a big deal out of Michigan winters, complaining endlessly about how they last six months, how I hate the feeling of being unable to be outside with out the cold getting to me.

Today, my argument against Michigan winter was strengthened. Winter no longer starts in December or late November, it starts Mid October. The amount of snow that accumulated on my car on the way to work, was definitive proof. I had to read on BestofMachinery‘s list of snow blowers earlier this year because of that.

To my surprise, I almost enjoyed it. I went back to my car after reaching the warmth of my loft office, to get my camera and snap some pictures. I hardly mind the pain in my right ear from the cold air and the wetness of my hair.

This will no doubt wear off, as daily light snow showers turn into endless wet, sludge, and fridge exteriors.

Winter is hear already, awesome….

  1. LOL. I moved from MI to MN and give or take a few years, winters were way worse in Michigan. Of course, we did get a few flurries today, but no accumulation. Hey, build a snowman and send me a picture, I’ve almost forgotten what snow looks like ;-). Strange, coming from Minnesota…

  2. lol! Yeah, every time I think about how much I dislike Michigan winters I always wonder how those in Canada do it.

    Even today, with out any trace of snow walking from my car to my office (two-three blocks) I thought to myself “This kinda sucks.”

    Maybe I just need to learn to acclimate better.
