I staggered out of the bedroom this morning and glanced out the window over the kitchen sink. I got a mug for my morning cup of decaf and suddenly, realizing it is almost May, snapped my attention back out the window. Wait....What!? Weren't we just outside raking and digging in the garden?
I was thinking about some of the Winters I've experienced up there. The first year my family moved there, my sophomore year of high school, the graduation ceremonies had to be postponed because most everyone was snowed in and we were enduring about a week with no power. I thought that was kind of exciting at the time, but it did start to get a bit old when you had to melt snow to drink. I was grateful we could melt snow to fill the toilet tank!
