As I was leaving to go to church this morning I discovered little white dippin dots covering the grass. I'm sad. I'm not ready for snow. We totally skipped Autumn this year. Just when the leaves were starting to change color the snow has to cover them all and kill them.
I grew up in Houston, Texas where it never snows. The one year it snowed the snow melted before it even hit the ground. I was in elementary school and I remember all the teachers letting us go outside and play before it stopped snowing. It was super awesome.
I was so excited when I moved to Utah 5 years ago just for the snow. It was awesome having a real "White Christmas" for a change. In my first winter in Utah I rapidly grew to hate the snow at the commencement of the winter season. Snow is very serene and picturesque, but very treacherous and daunting to drive in. Even after 4 winters here I'm still scared to death of driving in the snow. I'm the person driving at a snail's pace in the slow lane all winter long.
Snow wouldn't be that bad if it only lasted about 3 months instead of 8 some years. I guess Grant and I will need to move somewhere that enjoys all 4 seasons.
