It almost never snows here. In fact, I can count on two fingers the number of times in my life it has snowed here. that means it has snowed here twice in the past 47+ years, for those of you who are number-challenged ;-)
It does snow nearby in the higher hills every couple of years or so, but you have to drive 40 minutes to the "mountain" to the west or one hour to the "mountain" to the east to see any sort of accumulation (a few inches or so). Actually snowing here... in the flatlands... super rare. Even in the lower hills it's rare. I remember it happening when I was about 10 years old. It was the cooooooolest thing ever. I know those of you in more wintry climates are thinking, "get over it, woman."
My kids have never seen snow. They are sitting by the window right now.... waiting. It isn't supposed to even be a possibility until Saturday morning. I told them that. They want to wait. And watch. They are crazy. Snow crazy :)
I hope we get snow. Of course, it might make this weekend's run a little more treacherous... especially since I am out of practice when it comes to dealing with the elements ;-) Last night it was in the 40's when I went out for my run. My husband was worried about me being too cold. So sweet. I was fine.
The run was supposed to be a speed workout. I didn't have the patience for all that stopping and starting and warming up and rest-in-between pieces jazz. I just wanted to go out and run for a bit... so that's what I did :) I stepped outside, clicked my 'start' button and off I went. I decided a few minutes into it to try what someone called a "progressive" run... I think it was Mamarunsbarefoot. I did three miles... 9:49 for the first 3/4, 8:46 for the middle mile and a half, and 8:23 for the final 3/4... followed by 1.2 miles of cooling down at about 11 min/mile. I loved that the whole thing was over in 40 minutes!
I don't think I could have waited much longer for dinner. It was already 9:30 p.m.!
Do you like snow? Did you when you were a kid?
–I love snow. Glad I don't have to deal with it every day ... especially with kids... extra especially with little kids and babies. I loved it when I was a kid because it was such a novelty.
Would you like to live where it snows or where the weather is nice all the time?
–I think getting it a little more often than we do would be nice...or I'd like to live a little closer to some place that gets a little accumulations. But I really do like our weather :)
