When do adults cross over from being excited by snow to dreading it?
Let me start at the beginning. On the news last night they predicted a dusting. During rush hour this morning there was already 1/2 inch on the ground and it was still coming down. (I know I am getting NO sympathy from those north of here right now!!)
My children woke up EXCITED! Look at the snow! Isn't it pretty? Do you think there will be enough to build a snowman? Can we play in it after school? Can we go out now? They were doing the happy Snoopy dance.
I woke up, looked outside and grumbled (or probably more appropriately, whined) " I don't wanna go out...Please don't make me!!!"
I was trying to remember on the way to drop my angels off at their respective locations this morning just when I became a snow "grinch". I think it was probably when I had my first "real" job and there were no cancellations or delays for weather. Or when I realized that the worst of drivers and their driving abilities is brought about by the first 1/2 inch of white coating the ground.
Of course my reaction to it today could also have something to do with the bitter cold that is accompanying this system...
I actually love the look of SNOW on the ground outside, IF I can stay indoors until it melts!!!
How about you?
BTW - I'll start posting my favorite South Beach recipes every Monday starting this Monday, January 19th. Who said being on a diet and eating healthy couldn't be tasty?!
