complaining) in blogland about the weather a year ago as there is now. This seems to be a winter that has everyone wishing for an acceleration of global warming.
Early on, say back in November or so, there were a lot of wonderful snow pictures posted and praise for the beauty of the first snow of the season. In December many of us were full of the wonder and joy of a white Christmas. Even in early January there were still lots of pictures showing up of cute snowmen and kids and dogs romping in the snow.
As this winter has worn on it seems to have worn us out. There has been snow in places that haven't seen snow for many years. Temperatures in some states have dipped to rarely seen lows and sent people running to dig coats and scarves out of storage boxes. Places that are used to cold and snow seem to be having more cold and more snow than even they are used to. Snow shovels have broken and their users are worn down. Beautiful snow pictures have given way to grumblings about Winter and wishes for Spring.
Even as I sit her watching it snow yet again, I am well aware that in some parts of the world it is summer and it is hot, too hot. I wish nothing less than a cool and refreshing rain for those with too much heat. For those of us in the winter weary Northern Hemisphere, I am joining those who are saying enough is enough.
I won't be taking any pictures of the snow that is coming down here today or of the snow that is predicted for tomorrow. There will be visions of blooming flowers and budding trees dancing in my head. I am a summer person. I love little girls in summer dresses and little boys with bare feet. As I bundle up and shovel the driveway once again, (okay, Doc does most of the shoveling) I will be looking forward to the pictures you will soon be posting of the flowers in your garden and of your kids and grandkids eating a melting ice cream cone.
I will revel in your pictures of Spring.....until Summer comes and we all start complaining about the heat.
