Back to the grind

Well, today was my first day back at work after two weeks of Christmas vacation. Due to the icy streets I elected to take the bus to work, and with more snow in the forecast I’ll likely take the bus to work tomorrow as well.

I’m glad I’m not a big fan of hockey or I would be horribly disappointed.

I wish it had started snowing already. I would love go for a nightime walk in the snow. We don’t see much snow here on the island, so when it happens you have to take advantage. Somehow I have managed to avoid actually seeing any snow falling, as it snowed in Comox while I was in Victoria and it snowed in Victoria while I was in Comox. So far all I’ve seen is the aftermath, which looks nice on the trees but gross and dirty on the roads. I would like nothing more than to wander about aimlessly outside with the snow falling around me, listening to the eerie silence only a fresh snowfall can bring.

Falling snow always reminds me of Song for a Winter’s Night by Sarah McLachlan.
