It’s been a week of weather weirdness and it’s only Wednesday! Monday was warm, around 60, but the wind was terrible. Still, I wasn’t complaining because at least it wasn’t in the single digits. Yesterday dawned sunny and 55 but the wind was still gusty. Around 9 a.m. it was 61. I was supposed to go over to school at 1 p.m. and I’d heard the temperature was going to drop but I wasn’t prepared for the shock when I ventured outside. Temps had dropped about 20 degrees and the wind was making everything bitter cold. I trudged over to school and was halfway through my studio monitoring when I noticed it was snowing. Not hard enough to accumulate, but it was blowing around and it had gotten even colder. Around 4 p.m. I went to the grocery store (along with half the population, apparently) and it was getting more and more miserable as the day turned into evening. Today it’s sunny, but very cold (30 degrees as I type this). It won’t warm up much and tomorrow is looking very gloomy with a prediction of 5-8″ of snow. Ick!
It’s weird because I used to love winter. I still love the clothes, mainly my boots, but the season has lost its luster. January and February are just cold, grey and depressing. While I don’t look forward to the long, hot days of summer, I’ll take a 60 degree day over this cold crap. Hope you’re warm today. I’ll be camping out in front of the space heater!
