Delayed Griswalding

It hasn’t snowed yet. Middle of November and it hasn’t snowed. I want it to snow for selfish reasons–once it snows it seems unlikely anyone will complain about lawn maintenance, which no one has complained about in months, but who knows. Someone might file a November complaint. One of the neighbors is still watering their lawn every day. With snow would–in my hopefulness–come cold. November should be colder. It gets dark at five in the afternoon, it needs to be dark. For me to mentally accept the early sunset, I need the cold. I need the snow. I want the neighbors with their attempts at Griswalding their houses.
