Weather here in Manitoba right now is not so nice. A nasty combination of freezing rain and snow. Had some tentative plans that would have me away for the weekend. I guess right now we are in a holding pattern, waiting to see what Mother Nature has in store for us today and tomorrow.
Strange how we change over the years. When I was much younger, weather wasn’t even a factor in deciding whether or not to so something. I just cursed bad weather as it would slow down travel time. Storm, no storm it didn’t much matter, if I was going somewhere off I went.
That is until my kids came along. My world was turned upside down and I suddenly became a weather fanatic. NO WAY was I taking them out if there was a chance of a storm. Now, remember I am talking winter storms here in Canada, they can be brutal.
Maybe, I became older and wiser or something but even after the kids were grown, I never regained that same sense of bravado I once had. Now, particularly in the past few years with my health, I am back to being a total wimp when it comes to strormy winter driving. At least it is early enough in the year that there won’t be that -40 temperature thing to deal with. So I may or may not be gone for a day or two. This is one of those situations I have no control over, that being Mother Nature. So I am not going to sweat it, what happens, happens and I am good either way.
