As of last Wednesday the story can now someday be told to my children. They will now certainly hear of how their Dad used to walk to work UPHILL in the SNOW! May the legend grow.
When I got on the bus that day I met a lady named Debra. We talked about how great the snow was, the big soft flakes steadily drifting down. She then gave me a friendly lecture on my cold weather preparedness, "Your shoes are too thin!" She told me about how she doesn't like the heat and would gladly take the cold anyday. I shared with her my Mom's love of the cold and snow and how I thought they'd get along. Debra agreed, "Oh yeah, yer Mom and I get along real good."
