This winter has to be the warmest winter I remember since moving to Colorado 20 years ago. Today is the 1st snow I have seen all season. Apparently the weather man missed the mark and thought New Year's Eve would be better with snow instead of Christmas Eve. He was wrong, again. It has been snowing now for 45 minutes and I'm pretty much over it. I hate being cold, and snow is pretty much useless to me. I don't ski or snowboard or do any other outdoor winter activity so snow is just a nuisance. And it's cold. The only time snow is cool is when there is 6 feet of it and everything shuts down and you can't go into work because the snow plows can't even get through and you have to stay inside and drink beer and play board games and make out. That is a fun snow storm! Having just enough snow that you have to get out the boots and shovel, but you can still get to work/school/swim lessons is not fun. And it's dangerous to be out on the roads when it's like this. Surprisingly, people in Colorado who drive in the snow all the time are terrible at it! It's like they've never seen it before every.damn.time.
Thankfully I have nothing to do today but sit inside and complain so I don't have to actually face the snow but just seeing it out my dining room window makes me cold and pissed off. I'm ready for the warm weather again, and I am officially accepting trips to Mexico as late Christmas gifts.
