Ready for WI

Posted by – December 19, 2008

So I’m crazy, apparently, full on. Today it snowed and sleeted and hailed in Brooklyn, but mostly it started as snow, & it was beautiful to wake up with our trees – out the front window & the back – outlined so beautifully with the stuff. I really do love the snow.

I had an appointment to get my haircut, which meant I had to go out in it, too, so I put on my new winter boots (and coat, and hat, and scarf, and gloves) and walked to my appointment about a half a mile (10 blocks) away. The one thing I noticed is that I’m not so gingerly on the icy snow anymore; I walked in it so much last winter, in WI, and I find it funny to see my fellow NYers moving along very, very slowly.

The boots held up well, & Betty says I look like Wheeler, now, so I’m ready to go. I really do love the snow and the cold, love it. It makes me feel alive in a way that’s pretty astounding.

    Oh my! You are going to LOVE Wisconsin! I’m not certain of the snow depth in Appleton but there’s about 14 inches on the ground in Milwaukee with more on the way tonight. You do sound so ready!

    We’re covered in snow; it should be about as deep as you remember it by the time the next storm rolls through tonight. So, yeah. Even earlier than last year. :)

    PS. On the plus side, it will be stupidly cold. I’m even wearing my hat regularly now.

    Bah! Humbug. I lost control on the snow and ice and got in a car accident. It costs $5000 and takes 20 hours just to go down the street. Okay, nature, we get the picture! Please, no more snow!

    But yeah, my winter boots are super cute, so I guess that’s a plus.
