|February looks like this.|
I know, I know, I know, every day is or is supposed to be a precious gift. I did not spend my whole days in bed crying or feeling sorry for myself, hoping somehow that it would all go away. I stayed busy and accomplished several things during the month. I did a lot of knitting. I read several books. And magazines. I cuddled with Smokey Rose whenever she was in the mood. I did some baking.

Last year in SLC it was cold, and my apartment was cold because the heating system did not work well, and I was sick. This year I was not sick at all, and my heating system works fine. It was also sunny a far amount which helped. Nor was there much wind.
But it snowed often. Only once was there a large accumulation, but what kept happening was that it snowed in small layers so we ended up with laminated snow. And it stayed cold. Below zero F quite often. Did I say it was cold? Often? Really cold? It was really cold, A LOT.
I only made it out to the pool a couple of times. I made it to the grocery store a few of times too. I was able to walk to the library for knitting. I did talk with people on the phone and made liberal use of texting and email to talk to people.
My friend M. took a short trip ahead of a big storm to the coast of California. I really wished I could have done that too, but it was just too close to coming home from the big SLC trip. I will have to give this a lot of thought in the future. Maybe I could go away the last week of Feb to someplace like SoCal???? Maybe.
But now it's March. We're counting down to spring. I know we probably will get at least one of those super big March / April snowstorms, but those tend not to last because things warm up pretty fast afterwards. I can live with that because it is starting to become more sunny and warm than not.
Yeah for March.
|I hope to use this more next winter instead of this one.|
