What the… Snow?

Posted by Ken Campbell March 15, 2009 0 Comment 784 views

I got the weather on my mind, it’s true. This is the time of year when I think about it more than any other. In the dead of winter, you know it’s not going to be easy. There may not be snow, but it will be cold. And wet. And dark. It’s expected, so you go along with it and perhaps, eventually, you even pretend to like it. Likewise, summer around here is fairly predictable. Yes, there are those wet summers, long, legendary months of soggy wind and mushroom skies, but those are not common. Blue overhead and reasonable temperatures are the norm, and there are even a few hot and languid days in there from time to time.

This morning we woke up to snow. That was nowhere in the forecast. So far today, it’s snowed, rained, hailed… it’s sunny now, and it’s only 3PM. There’s still time for some sleet, and locusts. The only thing I know for sure is that it will get dark eventually.

I’ve decided to take the tent after all, when I go this week. Up till now, I’ve been telling myself that the tarp will be enough, but I no longer believe this.
