And just like that, it’s winter.

At the end of February.  But we’re not complaining.  No sirreee bob.  Nuh-uh.  No way jose.  We are happy.  HAPPY!  Happy, happy, happy.  Joy, joy, happy, happy.  Happy dance, happy dance.

OK, maybe that’s a little heavy on the happiness factor, but seriously man.  It is about time.  About damn time.  And no, it’s not anything like Boston’s 100 inches of snow in the last month.  But it’s snowing now.  It snowed yesterday.  It’s forecast to snow, at least a little bit, every day til next Wednesday.  Happiness.  Pure and simple.  And it’s downright chilly out there right now.  18 degrees Fahrenheit and holding.  Which means none of it will melt any time soon.  All good, all good.

Again, it’s not a few feet of snow falling, just a few inches.  But beggars can’t be choosers right now.  You know what I mean?

We went skiing yesterday and it was cold and snowy and just like skiing is supposed to be in the winter.  A goggle-worthy, hand-and-toe-warmers kind of day.  It was fantastic.

The extension cords are covered up out front, the icicles are hanging off of the garage roof, the sage brush is sort of turning white, I can’t see the dirt on the road.  Life is good here.

Now I’ve just got to keep my happy on by not turning on the radio and hearing about the antics of Mr. Boehner-who-should-be-imagined-as-a-“Walker”, the Congress who should definitely all be reanimated and zombie-ing around the Capitol, the hysterics of one FAUX NEWS, bloviating, talking head (I see you Billo), the ridiculous number of registered Republicans who believe that dinosaurs and humans inhabited the world at the SAME time, and so on, and so on, and so on……………………………………

Blessings be.

About madranchwife

Mother, Mad Ranchwife(as in--at times-- crazy, nutso, loco, off-my-rocker insane), Veterinarian, Physical Therapist, "Liberal, pinko, gay-loving, Subaru-driving Socialist" (as I've been called), proud to be a totally tree-huggin', climate change believin', granola girl environmentalist, ObamaGirl, Pro-Choice (don't even get me started here...), and in my younger days a feminist vegetarian as a result of time spent at CU Boulder (this lasted approximately 14 months, until all the Jimmy Buffett I was listening to caused me to crave a cheeseburger). Now I just get pleasure out of swimming against the stream and ruffling a few feathers here in the wild west state of Wyoming!
