I am not a roller coaster rider, but I can imagine the feelings. Your anticipation mounts while you slowly go up up up, and then just when you reach the top you are whooshed back down at breakneck speeds.
Our winter has been that way so far, and to be honest I am happy with it. The old saying of "if you don't like the weather in Kentucky just wait a day" has been so true.
Last Sunday we were trying to dig our way out of a blizzard. This Sunday we will be enjoying 60 degree temperatures. It is those warm days, the days where I head out in a sweater that get me through the cold gray days.
If you have read my blog for any amount of time you will know that I have SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and each year I dread the lack of sunlight.
This year I have spent many days sitting by the window soaking up the sunlight. It has been wonderful.
I don't know what the long term forecast is for the rest of the winter (they seem to get it wrong a lot), but I do know that the closer we get to spring, the happier I am.
Tuesday is groundhog day and I have a message for him. If you think you are going to see your shadow and predict six more weeks of winter weather, then just stay down there in your hole.
