Have you ever been swept away by love? In those situations, all you can think about is the boy or the girl, everything else in life slips through the cracks. You forget to pay bills, do the laundry, you drop all your best friends because you want to spend every waking second with the object of your affection. Remember Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton? Yeah.
Yesterday's blizzard was the Angelina/Billy Bob of snowstorms. It was the weather equivalent of the moment in psychotherapy when I finally broke down and cried. I hadn't wept in years, so when I started, it was like I couldn't stop. It was quite frightening, actually, though I'm certain it was VERY good for me.
It was an iron man triathalon of snowfall, it really was!
All the snow we haven't received in two years arrived during a 24 hour period. Whoa. What was I saying the other day about knowing the difference between enough and too much? The weather gods definitely have no concept of moderation. Yesterday the snow started and did not stop. I am in awe.
