In upstate New York it's not odd to get a blizzard out-of-season, except for the fact that there IS no real out-of-season for blizzards here. We get them in October and they knock out the power, and we get them in late March and everyone goes "NOOOOO!!" and laments the spring lost to twenty-degree temperatures and white fluffies.
But I'll tell you a secret.
I like the snow.
I think it's the most beautiful thing. And even though I'm probably a colder person than your average Jane (my natural body temperature rests at 96º), I don't mind the freezing weather. I like to bundle up!
So I am thankful for this last lovely snow.
I am thankful for another chance to wear my coat and scarf.
And I am thankful for my electric blanket to keep me warm at night through my almost-favorite season!
