5-minute freewrite Day 838 prompt: virus
What a great time of year for this prompt! Seems as if half the people in our area are plagued with one virus or another right now. My youngest daughter got sick on Thursday, granddaughter on Friday, son on Saturday, son-in-law on Sunday. That represents three different households, so they may not even have the same virus. Last time I went to Walmart, I purposely avoided aisles where people were sneezing. It's tempting to just hole up at home and never go out in public, but then other family members have to go out in public and can just as well bring the virus home, so I figure I might as well avoid cabin fever and go do things. We got about 2" of fresh snow in the past 36 hours, but it's supposed to warm up now. We'll see if the forecasters got it right this time. They often don't, despite all the modern technology. Maybe we were all better off relying on Grandma's aching knees to let us know of an upcoming change in the weather. I saw a picture of a young Bighorn sheep on the computer today, and the photographer said it was already shedding its winter coat, which would indicate an early spring on its way. I wouldn't mind that at all! I am enjoying the extra hour of afternoon light we've gained in the past month, and am looking forward to even more.
