And Now For Something Completely Different

The news is bleak and depressing, so let's do this instead:

In local news, it's -3° F. with light snow this morning. For those who protest each winter when I use "snow" and "sub-zero temp" in the same sentence ... yes, it CAN snow when it's really cold. Don't tell me about how that can't happen where you are.

I'm not where you are. Here, we have our own climate, and it's different from yours. Get over it, and move on. I say this not in anger, but with some degree of exasperation. Every. Winter. Really?

Sigh ...


The snowflakes get smaller, but they keep on coming down. Right now, it's like the skies are sifting a light coating of flour on everything. It's powdery, and can be blown off of the cars with a puff of air. But it's still snow.

AccuHunch promises we'll have warmer temps and snow moving in, tonight or tomorrow. Could be several inches, with temps in the 20s. After several days of this cold air, that'll feel pretty warm.

LOL, depends on your definition of WARM... That ain't it to me! :-)

I know, sir, but I'm writing subjectively; it's all relative. After a week of subzero temps, a 20 degree increase feels warm.

It's chilly her in Michigan.
This temperature of few months from now will be balmy.

" The news is bleak and depressing . . "
That, my friend . . . approaches understatement.
So thank you for that hilarious joke :)
Stay cozy.
We'll be getting a killing frost here in a couple nights.
I will begin my survival mantra:
Spring is just around the corner.
You may borrow it.

Ed, unless we have another freakishly warm winter, we'll not see anything "balmy" until May. But it's okay; we're Alaskans, and we want winter.

Cathy, you're welcome - I'm glad you liked it. Re: the mantra, I'll keep it in mind, in case we have a really, really cold winter. Otherwise, we're good. :)

Too cold to snow? Hah!

I know, I know ... but I hear it from someone every year.
