Today, Winter has defiantly stormed in and showed us that he means business. It ain’t over till it’s over. With a brief break and the promise of warmer temperatures and sunny skies we all got excited and started to believe that Spring might actually come. But alas, it is not true. Winter is here to stay and it’s back in full force. The forecast said that we would get a dusting today — not so, we have at least three and a half inches. This morning I even sat on the deck for a few minutes and thought to myself, “Wow, it’s not that cold this morning…” Well, temperatures must have dropped since the early morning. I went to my first class and came outside to a heavy snow and white, slippery sidewalks. School was even cancelled. It’s just craziness I tell you. This winter has been unusually long and snowy without any reprieve. Normally, we have at least a couple of weeks scattered between November and March with sunshine and temperatures in the 60s. We’ve had snow almost every weekend since the first week of December. Or so it seems, there might have been a couple that didn’t see the white fluffy stuff. Well, hold on and stay strong in the face of the blustery winds, freezing temperatures and fluffy flakes!
