When water comes to life....

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own.
And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go.”

Today, there was snow. Finally. I was resigned to the fact that i may not see snow the winter of 08 and that was OK! They predicted 6-10 inches in the city. NOT!

When i opened my eyes at 6AM and peeked outside there it was in all its majectic beauty. OK, i know your probably saying gosh she's corny. I am, i know it. It's a character flaw of mine, but in a good way. Anyway, by 6.04AM i was back in bed, disappointed because i was unable to run today! It's ok, my body needed the rest.

I live in a 23 story apartment building so the walking paths are always cleaned right away. Cars are another story. We are on our own to clean and shovel our cars out! So, i bundled up, hat, hood, scarf, gloves, boots, i have to say i looked kinda cute. Walked out, it was amazingly warm in a wintry mix kinda way. I saw my car from afar and it didn't look quite as bad as i anticipated so i thought a quick cleaning was in order. A few minutes later i noticed an older gentleman friend of mine coming by with a younger, quite handsome (i want to say hot guy) man. He introduced him as his relative from Israel who doesn't speak english. Well, you know how that goes, i tried to initiate a conversation but without language we only had our eyes and maybe our smiles to communicate with each other. He was nice, he shoveled me out (and i don't mean that in a dirty way) i watched (he had a cute butt) and soon it was all finished.

So, now i'm thinking "hmmm, i really don't need to be there anymore* but yet i didn't leave. I figured i'd talk to my older gentleman friend and get some info. Info is, he's leaving tomorrow for DC. :O(

So, today when the water came to life in Brooklyn somehow so did i! It's really only called snow and not much of it, but it was fun while it lasted. Now, the question is will it be clean enough for me to run tomorrow???

By the way, i do not know the little joyous boy in the photo above, i just really liked his enthusiasm!!!
