Come on, honestly

I’d like to compare and contrast yesterday and today.

I’d also like to point out the date. We’re in the latter third of April. We’re accumulating snow. Who wants this? Who chooses this?

We were in the television studio tonight watching it fall. It didn’t drift down peacefully. It didn’t flutter in the air prompting a meditative mood. It looked like the snow was being flung to the ground. Someone up there was angry with the stuff, flinging it off a shoe, dusting it off a jacket with a vengeance. I’m pretty sure no one here is pleased with it either. But, I guess, you just concede to psychological response akin to brainwashing.

This was a car parked out back of the building. It belongs to one of the evening maintenance people, and I walked out just before 8 p.m. I also have an approximate sense of when those nice people show up, so I knew it was gathering pretty quickly.

Indeed, on the drive to the house it was collecting quickly enough on the roof of my car that it was sloshing out when I cautiously accelerated through intersections. It was that melting-turning-immediately-to-ice stuff. The stuff that’s gross any time of year, but incredibly laughable for … yep, it’s still April 20th.

It’s still snowing, late into the evening. Can’t wait to see what it looks like in the morning.
