One Winter Evening

Not many people like cold weather, but this is my favorite season of the year. It makes my day snow or rain. I won’t complain if the temperature goes below zero. Somehow, I feel there is no holiday season without winter and snow. The temperature drops significantly in the windy city. Even though the scale shows a temperature of 10 degrees, it is below zero degrees.

I love everything which is caused by winter or rain or snow. However, I’m not too fond of it when it impacts the green grass and trees. Last week, I drove my car in the evening. The sky was full of clouds, and the sun had made multiple attempts to show his face between the dark clouds. I had chosen the countryside while driving from southern IL to Wisconsin. I was driving at high speed, but I was very cautious. I don’t want to kill any deer again as I did in the past. I needed to drive fast because I wanted to reach my destination before dark. There are many reasons why I don’t want to drive in the dark. I won’t be able to see nature at night, which was one of the reasons today.

Fields had been damaged due to the cold. I didn’t see anything green. Everything looked messy outside. No deer came in front of my car. But a police officer was chasing my car, though. I pulled my car to the side of the road. I thought my car stickers were going to expire in Oct. That is why the police officer was chasing me. I renewed it but have not received it yet. I did save the receipt on my phone, which was a smart thing to do. As the police officer approached the window of my car, he asked for my driving license and car insurance. The young white cop stated, “mam, you are driving 67mph, and the speed limit is 45 mph”. Oh no, this not a sticker chase, but it was a speed chase. I just said politely,” I am sorry, Officer. I want to reach my destination before dark. I have a phobia from the darkness. I am very cautious, so I will not kill any deer”. He had already looked at my car until then. The left side of the windshield still has a sticker of the emergency vehicle; I don’t know what he thought. He came after verifying my information and let me go with only a warning.

The mixture of sun setting and clouds were making the sky very scary. It was like golden and red rays on the white sheet. The view was making me so sad. I felt something pulling out of my heart. I did not feel comfortable at all. People say it is beautiful and romantic, but I have a great phobia from the sun setting. The rest of the ride was without incident. I had reached the cottage in Wisconsin before dark. This old memorial place has become my current hideout place. The cottage was so cold. The landlord lady had not turned on the heater. I don’t feel cold at all now. The number of different types of chemicals going into my body has definitely increased my body temperature. I can walk outside wearing only a shirt below the freezing point temperature.

I did not expect the dangerous combination of sun setting and clouds. I did expect the beautiful evening, but it ended up being scary. A strange fear had covered me. I wish there were rain. I wish there were only clouds. I don’t like the sun at all. Next time, I will remember to check the weather forecasting, which I am not sure how reliable it could be.
