Second Day of Spring
We don't get a lot of snow in Vancouver, Washington, and certainly not in the spring, so what was the deal with four inches of snow in my yard this morning? And I don't like to be the first one to slide down this hill because halfway down it drops off on either side into a creek. Add all the trees bending down in their white splendor, waiting to sink their bare branches into my car's paint, simply adds to the tension of the commute.
But worst of all, I wasn't able to drag my garbage can 200 feet through the snow to the end of my driveway. My dad would have done it. Barefoot. Uphill both ways.
I'm a weenie.
