And no, no I am not losing my mind.
At this point, after numerous floods followed by freezing rain, then dumping snow, then more flooding and some freezing thrown in for good measure, I’m going crazy enough to actually believe that perhaps the insane weather is controlled by unwitting aliens. That or whatever gods that be honestly hate me. Really it could go either way I suppose.
Honestly though, I saw someone on my Facebook describe the insane weather as being the result of someone shaking the snow globe and all I could picture was a Gary Larson comic. Thus my nod to Larson and his fabulous Far Side comic that helped shape the quasi-demented individual I grew up to be.
Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 33-year-old teacher/artist/dressage trainer/show announcer/ who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. A native Floridian, she now lives in Reno, NV, where she’s been able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless. Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She was recently able to complete her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a now beastly 7-year-old Dutch gelding, and Stormy, her friend’s nearly all white paint gelding with a penchant for finding every mud hole and pee spot in existence.
