Ok, so some of you know I’m from Florida but currently living in Utah. My husband and I moved here over the summer and what I’ve been dreading is here…snow.
Now, granted, it’s only 37 degrees out right now, so the snow that is falling is not sticking. But it’s expected to get colder tonight and there are predictions of 2-4 inches of snow by morning.
I’m just…flabbergasted. It’s only October! Where I’m from in Florida the temps usually don’t get this low until December, maybe not even until January (if at all!)
I mean, I’ve never had any experience living in snow. I’ve seen snow TWICE in my life and the first time I wouldn’t even really count it. It was in June of '06 (I was 23), when I came to Utah for a visit and my husband (then boyfriend) and I went with his parents to their cabin in the mountains. It was a few miles below the snow level so they decided it would be fun to take the Florida girl up to touch some snow. There wasn’t a lot of it, and it was very obviously melting.
The second time was when I came up to Utah for two weeks in January of '07. It was so gray and cold all the time (except at night, when the moonlight reflected so bright off the snow) that I felt like I wanted to throw myself off a cliff.
Also, I have NO idea how to drive in snow, so the thought scares me to pieces. Now, right now it’s ok, my husband is used to driving in snow and can shuttle me around. But I know eventually I’m going to have to suck it up and learn.
The only (slightly) amusing thing about this whole snow issue is that my chihuahua’s reaction is funnier than my own. He keeps alternating between glaring at us and looking totally pathetic. I keep telling him I’m on his side, that we’d go back to Florida if we could, but I don’t think he quite believes me… :teehee:
