"The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea." (Isak Dinesen)

"The cure for anything is salt water - sweat (eww, only a litte), tears (tons and tons), the sea (with no sharks), rain, and SNOW." (Me)

Sorry Isak/Karen, but it's true. The first snowfall of the year has hit the Washington metro region hard today. "Hard" being a relative term, of course, as Northerners scoff at our cries of Snowmageddon in regards to a projected 2 to 4 inches. But this Carolina Girl takes what she can get when it comes to wintery goodness.

Did I take the long way to grab lunch so I could be out in it longer? Perhaps. Have I been impulsively sticking my tongue out to catch a few flakes? Oh yes. Have I not realized I was doing it a few times and got caught by a co-worker and curiously eyed at by a stranger? Duh, this is me, of course I did. Do I care? Hell no, it's snowing!

(I reserve the right to take 95% of this joy back should I fall on my ass tonite or tomorrow. And by "should I fall," I of course mean when I fall.)

But for now, it's beautiful and time to head back out in it. Hooray!
