It's been snowing and now there are a couple of inches out there. The Überhund is very eager to go out, so in a minute I am taking him out for a walk in it and we'll see how much he likes that. It's very pretty and hardly spoiled by foot tracks or tire marks. Now that it is snowing, I want it to snow more. We may as well have the real thing if we are going to have snow at all. None of this little bit of snow, I want a pack of it.
I don't know which jacket to wear. When the wind isn't blowing, the cold is not that bad, but tomorrow I have to go on my bicycle and that may be different. I'll have to wear my gloves and my scarf and an extra layer of clothes.
The Überhund is having a tremendous pity party, because I'm finishing my cigarette before I take him out. I'd like to finish my coffee too, but it seems it will have to wait. He probably wants to deposit a big damping poop in the fresh snow and make yellow patches.
Well, off we go then...
I was right about that and boy, it is cold outside, because it is a bit windy, but the weather forecast calls for warmer temperatures for tomorrow and rain. It is going to be 3 degrees Celsius. One of my fingers is white from the cold, the circulation has gone out of it. I get that very quickly, always have, even when I was a teenager on my way to school and then unable to hold my pen until the feeling came back.
It turned out that some of the snow had been walked in quite a bit and that it was turning to slush. It will freeze tonight and get slippery. I remember buses sliding across the road sideways went it had frozen the slush during the night. I remember ice skating in the streets when we had frozen sleet. Those were the days.
Well, I can't honestly say that I miss them. My grandmother broke a hip on the slippery sidewalk and suffered a stroke as a result and was never the same again until she died.
So, there you have it.
I am going to put my pajamas on now and get comfortable on the sofa like I did last night. Have something nice to eat also. I'll think of something good.
Have a great night.
