Dust Off Your Sled and Pull It Indoors

25 01 2014

IMG_3691Pacific Northwesterners do not sit on the fence regarding snow and passionately stand behind personal opinions. Those who live here either bemoan a wintry forecast and hope “snow stays in the mountains where it belongs,” or anticipate weather that delivers a fairytale snowfall. I join the snow lovers who desire a frozen wonderland. You see, even though the Pacific Ocean along our Northwest coastline is ghastly frigid even in the middle of summer, it rarely ushers in the winning combination for a winter storm. We all have closets and storage bins stuffed with neglected winter clothes and accessories ready for a freak snow or ice storm, or for a trip to the mountains. So while I wait, I pull out those winter accessories, display them in my home throughout the season, and free up storage space. And, if by chance, we get a surprise storm or plan a last-minute trip to the Cascades, I’ll be ready to head out.
