More Snow...

We woke up to more snow today. It was beautiful, but poor Landon had to scrape his car before school because the door on the "Man Garage" isn't working. It reminded me of when I went to Ricks college in Idaho and had to scrape the windows on my Karmen Ghia every morning. Yuck! I hate the cold! My mom recently gave me some old letters that I had written during my college days and I just read some that I had written to my dad. It took me 'til now to read them because I didn't feel like crying. Anyway one of the things I talked about is how much I hated the cold and how I never wanted to live anywhere near the snow again. And here I am, living in the snow. But compared to Idaho, this isn't snow at all. I was so miserable there, weather wise, but it was a beautiful experience in many other ways. I loved reading those letters. It was kind of like being able to talk to my dad again. I loved our conversations. He was my rock and I miss him so much. I know he would have the perfect advice for me right now as I try to adjust to this new small town life of mine. If nothing else I could at least talk to him for hours like I used to, and in the end I'd be smiling and feeling like I could lasso the moon.
