I could smell the snow this morning. I peeked out the bedroom window, no, not here yet, but soon. My husband Michael was already on a mission to protect. Four hours earlier, he was up securing our home and garden from the ravages of dropping temperatures and an impending snow storm. We live in the land of extremes here in the desert; one day you can be sunning on the patio and the next, knee deep in snow. This is one of those days. The weather service predicted snow by the afternoon but as I sat at the breakfast table, facing West, I could see the front as clearly as if someone had painted it on a canvas. "Here is comes, three...two...snow!"
(You can take the girl out of Michigan, but you can't take Michigan...oh well, you know!)
Thanks to my sweetie, we're ready! Time to cozy in and stay warm and stay put. New Mexico drivers freak out in the snow, so it is best to stay off the roads. It is times like these I really appreciate my Michigan heritage and the skilled drivers from all those wintry states.
Keep cozy everyone!
