snow showers

You kind of expect it here in November – that wet, miserable dump of rain mixed with snow. But somehow, last year’s winter left everyone weakened. And so today, we complain. Seen what’s going on outside? Awful stuff…

I watch a flock of blackbirds raid the fields just at the edge of the city. Do you think birds even notice when it snows?

I’m warning you: between now and May 1st, the weather will creep into the Ocean blog in the same way that the news will be filled with Obama trivia. It’s what you do when you live through difficult days: for six months out of the year, you spend a lot of time talking about the weather. And, for balance, the White House pooch. To perk things up a bit until spring's here again.
