Well, we had to wait a week, but, yes, it's snowing now. Whether or not one would call it proper, i'd not be willing to say. It's a nasty, wet, "a degree warmer and this would be rain" kind of snow. My first shovel-full, the handle began to tremble so i quickly put it back down, and shook about half the snow off, then proceeded carefully with regard to how much snow i picked up. It's the kind of wet, heavy snow that could snap the handle of the shovel. The temperature is low, too, near freezing, and with a nasty high wind. This is the kind of snow that kills middle-aged men who go out to shovel. I took it easy.
The weather outside today sure as hell is frightful . . .
