Seriously Wintery

It’s seriously wintery now. In which, I’m going to need to pull some snow off the roof. How is it that snowflakes will collect facing straight down?

I will spend the day plowing and shoveling in a biting cold winter wind. This is the winter weather that is legendary for the northland. None of that wimpy global warming stuff where we barely get below freezing and snow melts soon after it falls. That is so last year.

We’re all good again, collecting stories that we can pass on to our descendants about how cold and snowy it was back in the day.

Hopefully, I’ll survive the weekend to tell about it later.
