Waaaaaay Too Much White

I’m snowed in and stranded.


Please bring HELP   pizza.  Please.


Early yesterday morning  this is what we saw out the windshield:

And this:


A few hours later as I came up my road, I switched into 4-wheel-drive.  As I got to my driveway and hit the gas.  This is where I ended up.

Nope that’s not a drift, not a snowbank.  It is the depth of the snow.  About 17″.


Another view from inside a warm house.


I made my way up to the barn to check on the horses.  Here was my view:

Can we say “white-out”?


I have to be honest with you.  This has put me in a real funk.  I don’t feel like doing anything.  I don’t want to jump on my treadmill.  I don’t want to put in an Insanity video.  Nothing.  I was even trying to figure out how to get my coffee pot closer to the couch.  I considered analyzing all of it but that was too exhausting.  So here I sit.  Can you believe it?

I’m pretty sure it’s part depression and part rebellion.  As long as winter stays here, I refuse to team up with the weather.    I think that maybe I also need a goal – maybe if I register for a race – the motivation will return.

Maybe I need to be a special kind of idiot.


But what if it doesn’t return?

Oh please tell me you have been there and got back out of the funk.


Right now I feel a little like Jill.

Maybe if no one sees me…….

Well, I have made a fresh pot (of coffee) two movies to watch, fire in the fireplace, and you are all jealous, aren’t you?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!


One step at a time,

  1. You will be fine as soon as the sun comes out..oh for a week or so for all the snow to melt. I promise it will happen! I just pushed myself( conjures up a funny picture) out the door while it is raining…..just keep moving!! I am getting a lot of reading done..almost done with Away from the Dark…wow..read both books in a week!!


    Life is precious, life is fragile and life is short. Live each day with kindness & mindfulness.

  2. You will beat the funk! I highly recommend trails to roads, if you seek out new and interesting places to see it’ll keep you motivated to get out there. Works for me, anyway.
    Signing up for a race is a sure cure for the doldrums…just sayin’. And running in snow is pretty badass, so there’s that!

    1. I think you are right. And your enthusiasm really helps. I agree with you about trails – it’s so different from running the roads. I really like it. Thanks!
