I take some pride in that I do not brood over things I cannot control.
Melting snow does not make the list. Without the snow, South Dakota is painfully ugly in the winter time. High temperatures in the mid to upper 30's has turned our winter wonderland into a drab collage of carbon stained slush and the worst of earth tones. Sunshine does not even make it look good.
I would love to will the weather colder, but my will is futile.
Melting snow is for spring training time, not mid-December.
