The World Is Mud-Luscious And Puddle-WonderfulThat’s a quote from e.e. cummings, and it’s true about our weather now. Yesterday, we barely made it up the hill and it’s supposed to start to rain….more. My car will make you smile. Take a look. My car used to be all shiny when I lived in Southern California. No more. I’m thinking mud facials, mud baths, mud parties… And if it’s not the mud this winter, it’s the wind and the snow — the most snow in 10 years — and the biting cold, the unusual temperatures for Asheville — it’s the coldest it has been in 30 years. Wow — I moved here from sunny California just in time to enjoy it all. As I write now, the winds are high, and the gusts are heaving huge rows of leafless trees to the left…..pause and re-group… and then to the left again. The wind is whistling. It’s quite the winnie the pooh kind of blustery day! It reminds us all, in case we should possibly forget, that Mother Nature is always in charge. This is the daily reminder that I wanted from her. This is why I moved to the mountains.
