Let it Snow?
It’s official. We had two inches of snow in Cedar Park on Saturday. It was a great day. I went out and did a lot of photography. I shot two rolls of film before 9:30 in the morning. It was fun getting out in the cold and snow. It’s been so long since I’ve seen snow that I’d forgotten what it feels like. I forgot that it’s wet and I got some on my camera. No big deal, I actually enjoyed the little droplets of water forming on my filter, watching them land and melt away in the glass. I forgot how quiet everything seems when it snows. Sure, it’s cold, but it makes you appreciated your nice, warm, heated home all that much more. My parents HATED the snow with a passion. My mother was like, “I moved to get away from this.” My father slept entirely through the snow storm and was happy when we hit a balmy 80 degrees on Sunday. He kept saying, “Only in Austin can it be snowing one day and 80 the next.” I heard the NH has had an especially hard winter this year, and they have all the snow to prove it. They keep getting hit with more and more of it, and the weather is just not warming up for them. Poor folks, but I guess they like it.
I sent my film away to the Fuji lab in Phoenix so I’m not sure when it will come back. I was hoping soon, but I think it’s already been 10 days. I’m not in a really big hurry but it just feels like the first rolls of film I shot have been in the mail for more than two weeks, and I’d like to start looking at them. I cleared out some old slides and got a new box to house the new stuff, once it gets here. I’m actually trying to get organized, it’s just the mass laws of entropy that are working against me at this point. Maybe someday I’ll have all my slides organized and labeled, but I doubt it. It’s too easy to go out and shoot instead.
Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in “Carol’s Little World” signing off.
