The storm is coming; the little icons on the weather page have snowflakes all the way through Saturday. But it’s a tough forecast, and the snow totals keep changing. Last night it was 8 to 12 inches, and 50 mph winds; today they say only 3 to 5.
One winter we had no snow at all, and this would have been a major event. Now, though, I’ve gotten greedy.
I want another foot, crazy as it is. A big snowstorm makes everything seem right with the world. This is the way it is supposed to be. We are creatures of nature; we are not its masters.
