This morning I woke up, slid out of my warm bed, and journeyed outside and around the house to the kitchen, where I cooked oatmeal over the stove, boiled some water for tea, and sliced a banana to eat with my breakfast.
When I left the kitchen, it was snowing outside! The first snow.
Snow is a big deal when you’ve lived in a climate like Phoenix with mild winters. I took my down winter jacket off the hanger and enjoyed my walk to work with flakes falling around me.
