Has everyone had enough snow this year?
I think I'm getting there. No, actually, I'm there. I've had enough snow to last me until next winter. I have seen so much snow this winter that I've forgotten what grass looks like. No, really, I have.
I was born and raised in Northern Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati. I lived there almost my entire life. Snow was something that arrived in an inch or two, and then melted the next day. And then, my husband and I went on an adventure. I got a new day job and we moved NORTH. *burr* *shiver*
Yes, we are now living in Madison, Wisconsin. We moved at the very end of August, so we did get to enjoy a few snow-less months in Wisconsin. What we've seen of the area is very pretty and the people seem to be quite nice. However, since the snow hit, we haven't gone exploring much. Neither of us are skiers or snowboarders. Neither of us like cold. So for most of the winter, we've huddled in our new place and watched movies, played video games, and marveled as the inches of snow accumulated at a startling rate.
There is someone in our family who ADORES the snow. That would be our puppy Max. He's going to be 2 years old this spring and we believe that he is a hound/Labrador mix. For Max, the deeper the snow, the better. Potty breaks become his opportunity to go charging through the snow like a lunatic. He has yet to pull me onto my face in the snow, but he keeps trying. He jumps through it, lays in it, and bites at it when you throw it at him. I'm beginning to think that he's hoping that the snow stays all year round. The only drawback to the snow is that he has seen less of the other dogs that live nearby, so he's had less time to play and socialize. I'm looking forward to finally taking him to some dog parks when the weather finally turns warm.
If it's still cold where you are, snuggle up with a nice blanket or someone warm while you read a new book. If your e-reader is getting a bit low, you can always try my new Asylum Tales series. I've got a few e-novellas that are just a couple of bucks (Kindle, Nook, Kobo). Or I noticed that Vicki Pettersson's entire Zodiac series is still priced only $0.99 per book. (Kindle, Nook, Kobo) Happy reading!
