Bundle up..hood, zip, gloves. I have friends that don’t wear a coat. I can’t do that. I crave warmth.
Tiny steps. STEP, step, step, slow and solid. Take your time, there is black ice under the blanket of snow.
Leaning into the wind, turning your head sideways to avoid the 40 mph blasts.
Whirling snow, holding my computer bag and purse close to me.
Finally reaching the car. Opening the car door so, so slowly. Don’t let go and hang on tight. Throw your bags in. Slide on in. Definitely don’t open both sides of the car doors at the same time or things inside the car travel outside quite quickly.
Wow… deep breath. Turn on the ignition. Just sit for a minute before you go.
