It is April. There are supposed to be spring showers and the start of May flowers peeping up out of the ground. The buds on the trees are supposed to signal that leaves will pop out soon. Instead, you are waking up to a snowstorm that, according to your meteorologist, is going to drop a foot of snow on the ground. When you are nowhere near the Canadian border and you do not live in Alaska, you are probably ready to cry. Here are some of the quickest ways to happiness on snowy "spring" days.
Bundle up and Clear the Sidewalks of Snow One More Time, Then Drink Hot Cocoa
Heavy sigh. About the only good thing about snow storms like this is that you have hope that each one is the last. That, and the fact that you have one more opportunity to enjoy rich, chocolatey hot cocoa. So, bundle up and go out to shovel snow. The exercise will increase endorphins as you make the snow go away. Then come inside for hot cocoa. You should be feeling a little happier in no time.
Hire a Snow Removal Contractor
Why expose yourself to the cold and the whirling snow outside when you can pay somebody else to clear away the snow? Snow removal contractors would be thrilled to make just a little more money at this time of year because the snow is supposed to be gone, and they do not have much work to do. Make yourself happy while making someone else happy about making money. Everybody wins. Companies like C & Z Construction can help.
Go Visit a Florist
Florists have tons of beautiful, colorful, bright, and cheerful flowers, regardless of the time of year. When you want to ignore the snow falling outside, and you have hired someone else to clear the snow away from your property, you can go smell the flowers at a florist's. Then you can come home to clear sidewalks, a clear driveway, and the smells of spring still tingling your nose.
Make Plans to Build a Toasty Greenhouse
Greenhouses, regardless of the time of year, absorb what sunlight they can. They are very toasty and cozy, even if they only get a little bit of sun before the storm hits. Then you can sit in the warm greenhouse until it starts to get chilly. At least you will get a little taste of the warmth of spring before the snowstorm ruins it. If you start your plans on this snowy April day, you will be able to sit in the greenhouse on the next snowy April day.Share
