The Weather In Baltimore, For My Family Out In California Where They Don’t Have “Weather”…

Looks like we’re finally going to get a good snowing in this season.  The sidewalks and streets in my little Baltimore neighborhood were covered with the white powdery stuff this morning, but not very deep.  It’s sticking though, and they’re calling for it to keep on coming down all day and into tomorrow, when for our wintery pleasure it will turn to freezing rain.  Swell.

The trick now is to not clean your car off as the snow falls, because when the freezing rain comes down on top of that it’ll be real easy to get the ice off.  Just bang your hand on the sheet of ice on top of the snow and crack it apart.  Then it’ll just slide off the snow, and off the car and you won’t have to scrape it off.  Some years ago when I lived in Cockeysville, a helpful neighbor cleaned the snow off my car one afternoon when they were calling for a freezing rain that night.  I wanted to throttle him, but I’m a wuss and I just planted a smile on my face and tried to explain to him that he’d just created a lot of ice scraping fun for both of us the next morning.  Surprisingly, the look on his face when it dawned on him was not very satisfying.

I got my winter hat in the mail, just in time for the snow.  The rabbit fur ear liner is very nice…but it seems a tad big somehow.  It fits fine and snug around my head but comes down really low to my brow.  I don’t think a smaller size would fit around my head, but I’m not used to having a hat come down that far to my brow either.  So maybe I mis-measured my head. 

The eternal problem with singleness: It’s hard to measure yourself.  Inside and out.  Which is why we need companionship.  More for the inside then the outside, although having someone to take your measure on the outside can be handy from time to time too.  It’s not good to be only seeing yourself inside of mirrors.  You need to see yourself in another person’s smile every now and then too.
