Somebody must be spiking my coffee or something, cause my attitude towards snow has done almost a 180 in the past few weeks. Where once I cursed the cold white powder, now I think to myself, “aww, but it’s so pretty!” That could be because I was scheduled to work from home today, but still – I even went out in the snow willingly! (Normally, if given the option, I hibernate at the first sight of flakes.)
I had to return my loaner Mini and pick up Winnie Cooper today (she’s fixed and shiny and she cost me less than $40! Huzzah!), but I made some detours along the way. Instead of researching the fastest way to the dealership and muttering to myself the whole way there, I took the long way, turned the radio up, and had a little singalong. I even made it a point to drive straight into some small snow banks to have some fun, and then stopped by the side of the road and got out to take this peaceful picture. Shadyside looked pretty today. Everything looked pretty today. 🙂
I wish this change in snow attitude would stick around, but I know me, and I know that I get a little tense when the roads get dicey. I’m sure I’ll be back to my snow-cursing ways soon enough… but in the meantime, I’m going to enjoy the view.
