The band of light snow
and sleet serves primarily to discombobulate the senses.
There is only one moment when snow has even a little bit
of charm. And that moment is the four or five seconds
immediately after three foot of snow has fallen. It's a
very, very, very brief moment, followed quickly by a
sure understanding of what hell might be like.
For myself I
cannot wait for this winter to be a thing of the past. I had
attempted to adopt a positive attitude, I considered
possibly taking an interest in some sort of winter sport
like jig-saw puzzling, I tried to wake up with smile and a
song, the Alleluia Chorus or something, I gave some thought
to vitamin D supplements, I even tried to give up smoking so
I didn't have to go outside every twenty minutes. All
this to no avail.
