An idiot dreams of snow…

There’s a Russian saying, when someone has a misguided desire that comes to fruition: Idiot’s dream has come true.

Lately, I have been dreaming of a snow day, the way kids dream about having a day off from school. I longed for piles of snow; on ground and on the tree branches (on the brown leaves, in our case, because this has been such a warm, dry autumn that the leaves didn’t really turn colors, but rather turned brown and started falling off). I was dreaming of snow on the bushes, the fences and rooftops.
