Snow In Spring

Forecasts called for more than foot of snow on the first day of spring.

Weird. Unexpected. Bothersome.

Coats put away for the season had to be dug out from the dry-wash pile, winter boots placed up top on the shoe rack. Well-made plans are thrown out the window.

Humans adapt, we don’t have a choice but to adapt. Nature won’t listen to our puny voices, that we’ve learned. Or have we?

Guess there’s still a lot to learn.

We’re helpless in the face of changing nature. We’ve known that.

Nature’s whimsy. We’ve heard of that also.

If only we could remember and keep on remembering. And not pack the snow boots away too soon.

It’s not just nature. Everything around us changes. Economies, presidencies, policies, algorithms on Amazon.

If only we could remember and keep on remembering.

Everything changes. Anything can change. We’d be a fool to bet everything on a well-made plan.

It’s always good to keep the eggs scattered.
