This morning we're having our first real snow! It's the first snowfall that's more than a dusting, and I'm as excited as a little kid. It's so beautiful here, so quiet. And my backyard will stay white a whole lot longer than my New York City street did.
Here's what Cody and I did while my coffee was brewing this morning.
Cody couldn't wait to get back from our walk to romp around in the backyard.
I had been planning on going to swim before Allan takes the car to work (then I basically don't have the car all weekend). But as much as the snow is beautiful, I haven't driven in this weather in a very long time, probably not since I'm a teenager. I'm not sure it's worth the anxiety to get over to the Y.
We - er, that is, Allan - put the plastic over the windows last night. In doing so, he discovered that several windows were only closed on the inside. The outside windows that cover the screens were wide open. Duh, no wonder it was so cold in here! Between double-shutting the windows and putting the plastic up, things are far more tolerable already. If we save a little money into the bargain, that will be a bonus.
Continuing on the winter theme, do you guys use winter tires?
