I’m getting ready to head out and go searching for the wild snow.
Once upon a time, perhaps thirty years ago, more than two feet of snow fell in the desert, but I’ve only seen flurries a couple of times since I’ve been here, and whatever stuck to the ground disappeared as soon as the sun came out. So, when a friend invited me to go snow hunting, I gladly accepted. Snow!! Out here, where it seldom even rains, snow seems a mythical phenomenon. Dare I believe?

We get snow sometimes here in Ohio, though it’s less common now thanks to global warming.

Huh? Gee you’re just a state away rami, were you in OH last winter? At one point I couldn’t get out of my drive due to two feet of snow with a nice coat of sleet for ‘icing’. (Pun intended.) It was really, really bad last year. So far this year, a lot milder and praying it stays that way.

Last year was an exception. Usually the snow is pretty light.
