Crazy Seasons?

Where are you winter? I normally wouldn't complain, but I really do like at least 1 or 3 REALLY good snow storms. I enjoy the stark, cold on my face-turning my cheeks and nose red from the cold chill. I enjoy bundling up in sweaters and coats, and seeing the breath as I exhale. I enjoy the annoying bugs being gone! I like it! I like winter. It seems to have skipped over us this year. It's not even march, yet the daffodils are in bloom and the frogs are croaking. Have I mentioned, I don't like frogs?

I love spring, I do . . . but I love winter, too. I miss it. I wish it had been here at least a little. A good 4" snow would have been nice. 6-8" even better. A good winter storm warning, a rush to pick up more hot chocolate, and sleds careening down the hill....I need these things in my life! Instead, in the middle of winter, my son is outside playing in shorts and no shirt. This is just so starkly wrong! It looks as if Spring is here to stay, for the most part. Temps will be in the 40s here there before rebounding to the 60s and 70s. Most are loving it, but I have to wonder what this means for the coming summer months.

  1. I so agree! I love winter and always get the looks from others when I say I hope it snows. I've seen a few posts pop up on Facebook recently where snows happened at this time in the last few years. I don't ever remember it being this warm this early:(
