Once Fall hits I get eager for a lot of things. I crave Thanksgiving Dinner and am known to make it at least twice between October and November (substituting Chicken for Turkey). I also start wishing for snow.
I moved from Michigan to Virginia 15 years ago to get away from the super cold Winter and now I want snow. It doesn't happen very often, but I hope for it anyway. I think it's gotten worse since having kids. I really want them to have all the fun I did as a child in the winter. I'm seriously trying to plan a trip to either Michigan or Chicago this winter to show them what a real Winter looks like.
I must also admit, that when it does snow, I'm often caught off guard and unprepared. In Michigan we always kept our cars in the garage or under carports and it minimized the amount of snow we had to scrape or sweep off the car each morning. Our garage now is merely storage and on the few times it has snowed, I've had to use a broom to sweep off the snow, as I do not own a scraper or snow brush. I'm sure I've purchased some over the years of living here, but they never seem to be around 3 years later when it snows again.
I will vow to be prepared this year. I will get appropriate tools to remove snow from my car and make a wish that I'll get to use them.
