Today we had our first snowfall of the year. Even though October feels way too early, I still get excited by the idea of snow. When I was a kid in Los Angeles, snow was a place we went, not something that happened. We would say "I'm going to the snow this weekend," which meant that one was going to the mountains, where there would likely be snow. We could control how much or how little contact we had with snow. In high school I even had friends who had never seen snow! Here in Michigan, though, snow is something that happens, whether we like it or not. Fortunately, I live with a very good shoveler, though that won't be necessary today!
