Voluntarily snowbound

Madame L continues to taunt me (but I know she means it in a nice way) with reports of how much better the weather is in the Bay Area than in my frozen neck of the woods.

However. The other day I had parked my car on the street overnight, returning the next day to find it under several inches of snow. It was a wet snow, so all of the windows were covered, including the door windows. I got in to retrieve the scraper/sweeper, but instead, without really thinking, I just closed the door and sat there. It was quiet on the street, like it usually is during a snowfall, and inside the car the snow blocking the windows made for a sort of peaceful twilight. It was very relaxing to sit there for a while in the quiet half light.

Or maybe studying for the upcoming board exam just has me entirely too stressed out.

Like Melina June asks when England will be on the travel docket, I want you and the Lady M. somewhere warm, nearby and full of it's own self-contained magic. Somewhere where breaking a hip in a weather related incident is a more rare occurrence.

I was in CA last April and almost broke a hip tripping over the homeless guy smoking doobie on the beach. Guess I'd have to fall VERY HARD to break a hip on sand but you get my meaning.

When is the board exam, anyhow?
