...you are not then surprised when you step outside and see this.
It is pretty and grounding and good for your soul and Robert-Frosty, and you enjoy it. (You come, too!) And then by the end of the day it is over.
But then, the next day when you wake up and bundle up (two pairs of socks, Expedition Weight long johns, a thermal shirt under cashmere and fingerless gloves) and step outside into this...
...you are a little surprised. It's less of a "wintery mix" and more of a full-on snow storm.
And then you check the weather again, and find this.
I love that the NWS releases are in all caps. It conveys a sense of URGENCY and also vaguely suggests an old teletype machine. Highlights:
* HAZARDS... HEAVY SNOW.
* ACCUMULATIONS... 8 TO 12 INCHES OF SNOW.
Huh. Even an unreliable weather app is right, although perhaps understated, twice a week.
I wish the weather app had little icons showing you which level of Capilene to wear.
