Seattle was expecting about 4 inches of snow last night. Yeah, according to Seattleites, it "never" snows here. Nevertheless, this is my second winter here and I have seen it snow at least 3 times. I am not a fan. It's beautiful, I admit that. Unfortunately, it's pretty damn scary too. I don't see sledding, snow tubing, snowboarding, skiing, or snowmen and snowball fights. I see icy roads, collisions, power outages, freezing to death, avalanches, or frostbite. Kids see snow days, I see boredom!
Now take in mind, I have never driven in snow. Randomly, my sister or friends, have been the drivers. After seeing a couple of big trucks or SUVs slide down a street onto a busy traffic light, I basically took a big shit in my pants. I know that was gross, but there's no other way to describe the fear that erupted in me. Even so, I had to get out there sometime. I'm a nanny with kids to drop off or pick up from school. Today, I drove in the snow. Thankfully, the weather cooperated with me. It rained and the temperature rose. It didn't let the snow become black ice, or harden. Oh man, there IS a God, and he's obviously on my side.
Next thing I did, was pee in the snow. LMAO! I'm kidding! I don't believe in literally freezing my ass off. I got creative and decided to write a special message for the people I love and miss back home. Did you know that Florida is currently the only state without snow!? Oh sweet, Sunshine state. How do I miss thee? Let me count the ways.
P.S. I never saw myself as the kind of person who dresses up just to go to the grocery store, but I don't see anything wrong with looking good. During the winter, "looking good" is just not perceivable. You need to bundle up, in order not to freeze to death; and some coats and jackets are just an eye sore. I will never understand how you can make yourself look attractive during a cold ass winter. See example below. Oh yea, real hot stuff there. ::cat calls::
