Some Observations on a Snowy Night
Isn't it nice to know there's someone to keep an eye on you? Bogey is my shower snoopervisor, er, supervisor. He ensures that the water temperature is comfortable, that I scrub behind my ears, and that I don't take a slippery dive to the floor. What a helpful guy!
Meanwhile, I may soon need a warm shower. There's more snow on the way. Snow...the four letter word that none of us welcomes. It seems as though we've already had more than our fair share. Tonight the streets have turned white, and according to the weatherman, the heaviest stuff won't even come until later.
I look out the window and wonder at how even a small amount of snow seems to slow life down to a crawl. Outside the temperature is frigid, but inside it's warm and snug. It feels good to sip a cup of hot chocolate without even a thought of leaving the house. Tomorrow may be a travel nightmare, but tonight, things are good. I can feel my body literally melt into the couch.
And perhaps in today's world of bad news, stress-filled schedules, and frantic racing from one place to the next, the arrival of another round of snow isn't such a bad thing after all.
