I guess Winter decided not to wait for its official entry date. Michigan got hit big-time with snow yesterday and is expecting more ... and more. Being a native, I know that one has to look at the bright side.
First, it's pretty. The trees are hung with white, the ground is smoothed and uniform.
Second, it's probably necessary in some geo-scientific way. Snow is water, water is good, right?
Third, it slows everybody down, at least the intelligent ones. You'd best not be in a hurry when there's only a track to follow down a state road.
Last, it encourages me to stay home and write. Nobody's going to call and say "Let's do lunch" today, and I'm not going to invent a reason to visit Wally-world. I should get lots done in the writing department.
Unless I'm distracted by dreams of Florida.
