I love a good winter. I'd like it to stay a consistent temperature range (highs between 45 and 65), snow once a month from November thru February. One good snow that shuts us down for a couple of days (as in no school, no work) with the other snows being deep enough to cover all the grass and look pretty. I really don't ask for much.
That hasn't happened this year, it has been all over the place. We had no snow until January. We go up and down in temps from day to day. Last week we went from a bright sunny comfortable day on Friday (I saw cherry trees in full bloom) to snow and rain all day on Saturday. No wonder there are enough colds going around to give Nyquil stock a considerable bump in value this quarter!
But what are you going to do? It's not like weather is returnable. Each day brings what it is going to bring, no matter what the weather forecasters say. The only weather that is controllable is my own. My husband used to tell our kids that they had to "bring their own weather" with them. He was right (don't tell him I said that).
Today I choose a bright, clear day full of sunshine. A day of hope, productivity, and promise.
