Okay, so apparently spring is NOT in the air. Not even remotely. It’s so cold as I type this I’m actually sitting under a heated blanket. Sure, I know it’s only February and we are still technically in winter, but it sure feels like this winter is never going to end. The good news is it WILL end, and then of course we’ll be complaining about it being too hot. We humans sure are hard to please, huh?
But when you see views like this, it’s hard to not long for the grass on the other side…
In the meantime we’ll have to make do with the snow and try to enjoy it the best we can. I see beautiful pictures of portraits in the snow but no one around here wants to get out in it – myself included! We’ve had several rounds of winter weather this week in Oklahoma, which started on Sunday when we had roughly 4 to 6 inches dropped in my area. Well, since I live off a county road and on a hill there’s no way we’d be able to get in and out of our drive way unless we dig it out each time we get snow. So, after it stopped snowing Sunday early afternoon we all went outside to dig ourselves out so we could get to school/work on Monday. That was the longest, coldest and yet most entertaining hour of my life. I took a snow/ice ball straight to the face, watched my dog run in circles eating the snow and tackled one of my brothers into the not-so-soft snow. It was great!
So, that’s how I spent my winter-y week; inside, extra blankets piled on top of me. At least so far the weather on Saturday’s has been fairly nice so I am able to make my long runs outside instead of on the treadmill (I hate running on the treadmill). I ran 6 miles again this past Saturday and a tractor passed me three times, I’m pretty sure he and the cattle he was feeding thought I was crazy. But I can’t let the winter weather get me down!
How do you handle weeks when the weather just doesn’t cooperate?
