Winter Woes-Year Three

The first eight winters we lived in Pleasant View were pretty mild and seemed relatively snowless compared to our years in Bountiful. Well, the last three winters have more than changed my mind about snowfall totals and low temperatures in Northern Utah.

This week has just been cold that Simba has been living in the laundry room. Our garage cat is only allowed into the house during the nights it gets below 20 degrees, but we haven't even been getting above 20 degrees in the daytime, so he sticks pretty close to his 'kitty cushion' on the laundryroom floor and we have to use him like a Swiffer Sweeper to get him out for a litterbox break and to eat/drink a little.

So it finally warmed up to freezing yesterday (it felt absolutely balmy) but that was because it was snowing. It snowed ALL DAY yesterday and through the night and currently it is snowing really hard. We were supposed to be at Elder Jordan Hanks' mission report this morning, but we decided the roads are too snowpacked and scary to make the trip to Bountiful.

Every December to March for the last three years I've wondered why I live in Utah, home of the 'Greatest Snow on Earth'? We proudly advertise that on our license plates, but this morning I'm thinking Arizona, Southern California or Florida wouldn't be a bad place to winter. I must be getting old or turning into a goose.

I love to look at the snow when I am inside my cozy house by the fire or eating a bowl of soup or having hot chocolate....I do NOT like driving in the snow, or shoveling the snow or the fact that it lasts until March!! I find myself watching the weather reports closely this time of year!!
