there was snow on the ground yesterday. it made it all the more “right” that it was thanksgiving. it made it all the more right that i was in a cozy house eating lots of food, watching movies and parades, and playing games. our house was full yesterday. but then again, you already knew that. it was a good day.

this morning my dad and i went to leave the house. we weren’t expecting it to take us ten minutes to get out of the driveway. we tried the “slow way” (driving at 1 mph), we tried driving onto “fresh” snow, we tried turning the van around. eventually we found ourselves inching up while the speedometer said we were “going” 50 mph. the smell of rubber was invigorating and the whole operation gave us a fresh love for this place we live.
snow is annoying.
