I woke up this morning to something I didn’t expect……
There was snow on the ground.
Sure, it was in the forecast. And as a self-professed weather nerd, I knew it was in the forecast.
Sure, I live in Canada. Snow in late November isn’t unheard of….. unless you live in the banana belt.
I know… we don’t grow bananas here…. so it’s not ACTUALLY the banana belt… but the fact is, since I’ve lived where I live now, I don’t see snow all that often compared to most of the rest of Canada.
So to wake up on November 23rd to snow on the ground… well, it was unexpected. I saw the forecast and went ‘yeah right! We’ll never get snow in November.’
Side note: I am a terrible Canadian. I hate snow. I saw it, I groaned, and I went back to bed…. though since I had to go outside to let the dog out (who, incidentally, does NOT hate snow….), I had to admit that freshly fallen snow does smell a bit magical…. but if you ever call me on that in person, I’ll deny I ever said it.
So this…. this is ‘unexpected.’
