There’s an eighty percent chance of rain or snow today. Of course, the temperature is going to be mid-forties, so the rain or snow will not accumulate. But it might signal winter finally starting. There have been no other signs. Frost isn’t even a given any morning. I’ve been looking forward to this winter for a while now, not just the last week and a half, because it would signal some kind of return to expectation. There is snow in the winter. Even in Colorado. Traffic is bad for different reasons. Visibility is poor because of weather conditions, not because there are never any clouds and the sun’s always in your eyes. Though the sun in the eyes keeps happening through winter. And I want the garish Christmas decorations lighting the last few minutes of my commute. This fall has been endless.
