Waterfalls

In the Northern Hemisphere, in the US, things have been fucked up all year, by which I mean 2021. (It was supposed to be better than 2020!) It sucks.

Those of you living on the North American continent are aware know how cold it’s been this winter, yeah? And, I don’t know about you, but our ground has been covered with snow for longer than I have, I think, ever seen. And least, in my remembered history.

And you know how I feel about winter. Well, I have Wee One (WO). Am I going to deprive my child of the chance to frolic in the snow because I am an old curmudgeon? No. I’ll put on my big girl panties (and base layer and wool sweater) and go out with her.

I’ve been having a lot of fun. I got proper snow pants in preparation for time outside with her, and waterproof gloves, so I’m considerably drier and warmer and I can sit down. I’ve been outside twice as much this month as I was in February last year. (The two years I’ve been keeping track. Tryin’ to get WO outside for 1000 hours this year.)

One thought on “Waterfalls

  1. Nothing enhances enjoyment of snow more than the company of a child. Not a snowy year here in England (it rarely is) but we’ve had our share, at least when the rain has agreed its just too cold to keep flooding us without giving us some ice to slide around on. And we don’t seem to have invented the snowplough yet. What went wrong?

Okay, your turn.
