I am snowed in again this morning. I wouldn’t be snowed in if I were 10 or 15 years younger than I am. However, I have learned to be careful about going out in weather conditions, snow and ice, which could result in a fall. A fall could take away my independence, therefore, I stay home when the weather is bad.
In my younger days, this snow would not have stopped me. Many times I’ve driven to school in snowfall deeper and more daunting than this one is. Snow removal in our town is done very well and we seldom miss a day of school because of snow. That’s no different today than it was when I was a teacher in our district. What is different is me! I’ve been retired for many years now and I have no pressing need to be out and about when we have heavy snowfall.
I will miss getting to the church service today, but in several weeks the weather will be better again and I will be back in my usual place in the pew. I hope it’s next Sunday.
This picture is not from today. It is one of my photos from another year.
