The Last Post Complaining About Winter (and This Time I Mean It)
posted Mar 11 2014 10:10PM
It's almost like spring, which I guess makes sense because it's almost spring. Is everybody with me? All right then. As I type this, it is 10pm on March 11. Normally at this time of year the average temperature is around 40 degrees. At this moment it's almost 60. Listen, I'm not complaining. I hope it goes on and on. It's been a too-long winter and I am more than over it. I've complained here before that I think it's dumb that the calendar matches up the beginning of the seasons with the solstice and equinox. I realize that's not changing anytime soon, and so I must live with it. But I still think it's dumb. But I digress.
For whatever reason, this winter has been long and tough. And cold. Like, really cold. Colder than usual, snowier than usual, and just plain winterier than usual. And I for one am not a fan. But this here now is nice. It's probably temporary. Most years we'll get a spate of warm weather before the final cold snap before spring begins for real. I'm prepared for this. I just want to get it over with, be done with this winter for good. And as an added bonus, once winter is really over, I'll stop whining about winter. So win.
So, as a change of subject, how's the family?
