On Being Cold

It’s cold here. I mean cold. Okay so if you are reading this from northern Canada, or possibly the South Pole, you might look at my measly 21 degrees F (-5 C) with something of a sneer.  But really, when I tell you it’s cold I know what I’m talking about.  It’s freezing.  Below freezing, even.  This sucks. And it’s not going to get better anytime soon.

I’m not sure why the cold has started bothering me the last few years. Winter has always been one of my favorite times of the year. I get to wear baggy clothes, drink lots of hot beverages and hide in my house for days on end. This is my kind of thing.  But maybe I’m venturing into that stage of life where cold is no longer fun. I’m starting to see the reason the snowbirds flee to Florida and points south when the flakes start to fly.

At least the days are getting longer. Summer, maybe you are not my enemy after all.
