In your defence I have to say that you resisted beautifully the last two winters because we only had to snow shovel a couple of times and the temperatures were quite seasonal and bearable. I thought maybe you were finally over him… for good, and that I could count on you to make him behave.
SO WHAT HAPPENED LAST FALL?
Did he mesmerize you with his magical snowflakes?
Did his shimmering white smile leave you weak in the knees?
Please tell me!!! WHAT WAS IT?
When I think of you I think of animals frolicking in lush green forests, and meandering rivers with soothing waterfalls. I think of blooming flowers, and leafy trees, and warm-to-the-skin days of sun.
The only sun we’ve seen for months is when it’s 30 below. OR WORSE!!
Old Man Winter must have had a few special tricks hidden up his frosted sleeves because you obviously fell head over heels and right into his snow-filled arms… and you’ve let him have his way with you… and us… ever since.
TOTALLY… and COMPLETELY!!!
It was the first week of November my memory recalls… when we received our first of many, many, many, many, many snowfalls.
I say it’s high time you dig your way out girl, and put an end to this ridiculous polar vortex (politically correct speak for one icy affair).
From past experience you know there’s no future in it… and if you’re just having fun… well… at our expense? Comon!!!
Some of us have rooms to redecorate, furniture to paint, and wind chimes to make.
BUT IT’S TOO FREAKIN’ C-C-C-COLD!!!!!!
I’m tired of you putting your own needs ahead of the needs of us mere mortals who are shivering and shovelling.
Honestly…I’m tired of being tired of being cold.
I’m not asking for a miracle… or anything unreasonable… just temperatures that don’t make my nostrils freeze… or my fingers ache… or my breath hang in the air like a cartoon bubble when I speak.
IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?!!
I think not!
If you won’t do it for my poor bank account that’s being drained by insane propane bills… do it for the poor Robin that showed up in my mother’s backyard a week ago. What was it thinking?
WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?
SNAP OUT OF IT MOTHER NATURE!!!
Stay warm everyone!
