Living on the foothills of the Catskill mountains gives you a whole new appreciation for your building’s super and his snow shovels The weather forecast was always a matter of mild interest to me when I lived in the city, the bit on morning TV where I invariably tuned out. Basically all it amounted to was whether or not I needed to bring an umbrella and what shoes or boots to wear. Even if I didn’t pay attention or got it wrong, didn’t matter, worse case I got a little soggy or had to hopscotch my way to the subway station. Wipe off the raindrops, tie my hair up in a pony tail and I was good to go.

Ha, now I live by it,. Regularly checking the hourly forcast particularly in the winter and the extreme conditions that come with it. Weather patterns dramatically affect my day; should I put the horses in or out of their stalls? Will daycare be open, or will I ‘work’ (in heavily inverted commas) from home? Can I plow the driveway with the quad or are we getting so much snow that I’ll need the plow guy? Better shovel the path to the woodshed and schlepp the wood in to keep the woodstove burning, stockpile water in case the power goes out, load up on groceries in case it’s hard to get out for a couple of days. Now I dress up like the Michelin Man and take it on.

Sometimes I really miss that thermostat and the soothing sound of the Super shoveling the sidewalk!
