Today is day four of new home ownership. It has snowed real-snow once, and I went to an empty parking lot to practice driving in the Pop. The Pop is at the dealer getting an “undercoating” to keep from rusting. It is colder than a Baton Rouge winter. I have worn everything warm that I own and winter is just beginning. Today is the day I stepped outside and said to myself, “I want to go home. What the hell did I do?” It’s only November 4. Fantasies of a snow mobile in the future brighten my day, though.
My first winter in Rhinelander draws near, and it’s only September 10th.
That calls for desperate measures.
Here are some signs that Winter is Coming:
This is the the fearsome Hodag, resident of Rhinelander in the Beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin (note: beautiful and Northwoods must be said together; these words are inseparable when referring to this part of Wisconsin). I would love to take a picture of every Hodag in town, a daunting task given the sheer number of these creatures. The magnitude of these beasts in their multitudinousness demands documented. These are the Hodags at my realtor’s office. ,,,
Given my recent move to Rhinelander, WI, I’m concerned about how my little Fiat Pop 500c will handle in the snow. By all reports, this little car should handle well,which is comforting and exciting. Drive, She Said offers a couple of videos to make the case.
