I look forward to Tai Chi class on Tuesday. There has been snow, sleet or freezing rain on the past three Tuesdays. This week is no different. In Pennsylvania, the words “winter weather warning” creates dread in some communities. My Aunt lives in the coal regions and entire towns sit on the side of a mountain. The roads are treacherous in the snow and impossible when there is ice.
In my area, the anticipation of a winter storm is often worse than the actual storm. We often get less snow or ice than is forecasted. When a “winter weather warning” posts, people swarm to the grocery store and stock up on bread and milk. It has become a ritual regardless if they have two loaves of bread and a gallon of milk in their kitchen. If you wait too late in the day, the shelves are bare.
I am crossing my fingers that I am able to get to Tai Chi tomorrow. We are starting to work on the second section of the Tai Chi form. It is exciting to see new techniques!
