Day 10: NIMBY

I don’t know about you guys, but I get a lot of my news from facebook. It’s one of the last things I look at before I go to bed, and one of the first things I check when I wake up. Ugh. I just re-read that sentence and realized how lame it makes me sound. Anyway.

This morning, I woke up, checked my facebook, and saw several back-to-back posts about SNOW in my newsfeed. “Slippery roads out there!” warned one friend. “First snow of the season,” proclaimed another. Her update was accompanied with a photo of a powdery-white deck. There were several more posts about putting away the golf clubs, drinking hot chocolate, getting geared up for winter, etc.

The sentiment ranged from elated to disgusted. I think I fall somewhere in between, however, I am very thankful this snow is not in my backyard. Yet. I’m just not quite ready for that aspect of winter. Yet.

I’ll admit that I am crazy-excited for Christmas. I’ve already created a Christmas-themed Pandora station that I’ve been rocking out to all week. I’m thinking about getting our tree up soon. I have found tons of Christmas cookie recipes online that I’m excited to try, although after my cookie debacle yesterday, I may wait a while on those. I’ve started my shopping and have set a goal to be completely done with that daunting task by December 1. Wish me luck.

Yes, I’m ready for Christmas, but I’m not ready for snow. I know I can’t fight it; I live in Duluth, Minnesota after all. It’ll come eventually and when it does, it won’t stop ’til spring. I think that’s why I’m thankful it hasn’t started in my neck of the woods just yet. Sooner or later, I’ll need to dig out the shovels and boots, but in the meantime, I’ll savor the snow-free days as much as I can and be thankful Mother Nature hasn’t wreaked her snowy havoc in my backyard. Yet.
