That one snowy day…

I hate snow. I hate winer. I hate being cold. Don’t get me wrong though. I like snow on the first day it falls. It’s romantic and cozy. I hate it the day after though. I hate the cold wind, shoveling out everything, the wet slush, putting on billions of layers…the after math of it […]
