Did you ever have someone tell you they could detect the odor of snow in the air? It was a number one statement of my mother.
Whenever it got cold plus humid, she would take a sizable whiff of air plus say it odored akin to snow.
She was ecstatic if we even got a couple of snowflakes. It seemed to make it sound as if she knew what she had been talking about. The funny thing is that my mother didn’t prefer snow when she got older. She worried about slipping plus falling. She wore a jacket just in case it got cool in the house. Even before fall arrived, she was reminding myself and others to have the heating, ventilation, plus A/C system cleaned plus inspected. I would hear how mother always called the heating, ventilation, plus A/C supplier in early September. She wanted nothing to happen to our furnace in the middle of winter. She was always mindful of keeping her plus us adolescents comfortable plus safe. As soon as she mentioned having the furnace or air conditioning machine inspected, I would put it on her calendar. I wanted her to suppose that I had listened plus it would be done. She looked at the calendar every day plus I didn’t call the heating, ventilation, and A/C supplier until she mentioned it again. She would look at the calendar plus tell myself and others that today was the day to make the call. While she sat there with me, I would call the heating, ventilation, plus A/C for heating, ventilation, plus A/C inspection, plus I would mark it on the calendar. She always wanted to make sure she was up, bathed plus dressed, before the heating, ventilation, plus A/C contractor arrived. She never wanted to be caught in a less than respectable position.
