In my last post I spoke about the winter holiday time as a time that I love. Today my love is being tested by the first blizzard of 2015.
I live in Boston, Massachusetts and in Boston we say that if you don’t like the weather just wait a minute. Most New England residents love the four seasons and that is why we continue to live here. Weather talk is a large part of our lives. We revel in both loving and hating the conditions and temperatures. What is fascinating to me is that no matter how much weather I experience I am still able to be surprised by it.
The weather reporters have been talking about this snowstorm for several days but were afraid to commit to snowfall amounts because they know that the rest of us will complain if they are wrong. What they don’t seem to realize is that we will complain if they are right too!
I have decided that for this storm I will not complain and I will be grateful for a number of things: My family members are warm, safe, and accounted for, I have a home that I am in and I am warm, and finally, for now it looks beautiful outside.
I pray that you have all of these things as well, if not- just wait a few minutes…
