Alternatively entitled, “What to write about when there’s nothing to write about”, or possibly, “Winter blahs: yet again”. There comes a time every year when I mentally scroll through blog posting ideas and come up with nada. Zilch, zero, nothing. With the temperatures hovering in the twenties (Fahrenheit), and the gravel encrusted snow as my muse, how could I come up short, you ask.
Some of you preparedness nuts out there may remember I wrote about having a few posts on the back burner for situations just like this. A glance at my rough drafts reveals that none are quite ready. You’ll just have to wait for my soon-to-be-famous treatises on bunny boots, ice fishing, and snow shoes. Some much needed research has to happen first. I say that with heavy heart and a large dose of trepidation. Just who looks forward to spending the day on a frozen lake with a fishing pole? Perhaps my impending research will reveal the answer.
I have no inspiration to catalogue, no tours to sing the praises of, and no to-do tasks to share. If it hasn’t been done by now, it’s frozen and not getting done until spring. We’re not even in a “pretty” phase of winter, with a landscape looking as if it were dusted by white frosting. No, no. Imagine more of a blighted look, with a dash of grayish, dirty snow and complete with a repressed looking populace, clad in large coats and bad attitudes. So I ask you, what do I write about? I’ve got nothing….
What do you write about (or like to read about) in the off-season?
