An Apology/Why isn't it winter yet?

You guys, I am so sorry that it's been about fifty billion years since I've posted. Thanks to those of you who stuck around, and to those of you who started following me even though I hadn't posted in forever. I don't even have an excuse for not posting. I haven't been incredibly busy. I haven't had a traumatic life experience that made me terrified of blogs. There was a brief period where I didn't have a charger for my laptop, so that kind of sucked, but it only lasted about two days, so I can't even use that as an excuse.

I hope you forgive me.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, we reach my reason for blogging today: It is December. Technically it is winter. But there is no snow.

I do not know what winter is like for those of you who live in places that don't ever get snow, although if it is anything like this, I don't know how you do it year after year. In my home town, we usually have a good six inches of snow before November even begins, let alone December. Even at school last year by this time I'm pretty sure we had had at least one snow day. So this lack of snow is getting me down.

I know I've probably mentioned this before, but there is nothing that I think is as pretty as snow. I love winter, because everything is sparkly and magical. I love driving around at night and looking at Christmas decorations in people's yards and marveling at how beautiful they are glinting off of the snow.

It's so weird not having that right now. But I guess I just have to be patient.

What is it like for those of you who never get snow? I've never lived somewhere that never snows, so I can't imagine it.

More later.

  1. WB you were missed. As to snow, spend part of a December in the Caribbean a couple of times, but here at home we get tons of it. Late or early we always get our share, it will be along.
