March Means the Winter Is Over, Right?

Hello, March! Nice to see ya!

You know, as much as I love the Winter, this year I am incredibly pleased to welcome the Spring. Heck, I'm even looking forward to Summer, and that's a huge deal. I hate hot. I hate feeling hot. I hate sweating because it's hot. Anything above 75 degrees Fahrenheit makes me miserable.

But after this Winter... Oh, this Winter... It was colder than it has been for as long as I can remember. Sure, Nashville was the tiny little speck of green surrounded by a sea of white (see below), but while we didn't get the precipitation that 80% (grumblegrumble) of the rest of the country received, we did, however, get what the meteorologists called "bitter cold." And bitter it was.

So mad. Soooooooooo so mad.
Granted, Nashville's idea of bitter cold is in the single digits (e.g. 5-6 degrees Fahrenheit) whereas in places further north like Michigan, Wisconsin, and - you know - Canada, bitterness doesn't really come around until you get into the negatives. Shut up, guys. We're not used to it. It'd be like Atlanta getting 2 inches of snow...



At the end of the day, I'm just ready for some sun and some warmth. This winter has left me chilled to my very bones, and I am in need of a good thaw.

How about you? How was the weather in your neck of the woods this past winter? I hope you and yours were safe and warm (as warm as possible, anyway).

Well, I live close to Atlanta, so you can probably imagine what it was like here. I have discovered that there is, indeed, a difference between the way 17 degrees and 7 degrees feels--formerly I just thought once you get below 20 degrees it was just cold.
