The lovely string of spring weather has left – and today, Chicago is watching the skies for the “big snow” that has been predicted. If you are 9, there is nothing more exciting than the prospect of a snowstorm. If you are 40, and trying to get Christmas shopping done and errands run, you prefer warmer weather. Such is the struggle at our house. Since it’s December tomorrow, the 9-year-old in me is hoping forsome snow. Having lived in the midwest all of my life, Christmas = cold + snow, and that is that. It’s hard to plan for the reality of the 25th when it’s 60 degrees outside. It leads to major denial and procrastination!
So, here’s to a beautiful first snow to motivate me (and thrill my son), followed by a melt that will allow me to get stuff done! We’ll see what happens ….
