Getting Serious Now
Fall is an awkward and confusing time when we are desperately trying to hold on to the last good days of summer while anxiously anticipating the approaching storm clouds which escort that glorious winter season.
Storms in October only serve to tease us. After all, we still have high school football and trick-or-treating ahead that seems to function better with good weather. So we like to see the snow … but we also want the weather to be pleasant for the kids.
But once November arrives, all bets are off. We’re done mowing lawn. For the most part all outdoor sports are over. The snow check sleds have arrived at the dealerships and it’s time for snow.
Although there is that pesky holiday near the end of the month where many hit the roads traveling to enjoy a turkey meal with family, we are willing to put up with questionable road conditions if it means we can spend the weekend out on our sleds. And each storm tends to deposit accumulative depth in the high country (read base).
So now that November is here, let it snow. Let the storms rage and the winds blow … just as long as it lets up a bit every four or five days so we can take advantage of the results. Let’s get serious about winter.
