The weather has been kinda nutty, hasn’t it?
We left for Florida in early January and we took a cab to the airport to avoid having to be outside for more than a few seconds in the minus thirty temperatures. It was cold. It was so cold I didn’t want to leave the car outside for two weeks for fear that it wouldn’t start.
Then we come back and it’s warm. Unseasonably warm. Melty warm. January is not supposed to be above zero… ever. It’s just –idontknow– wrong somehow. But yet there we were last week, our biggest concern was making sure the snow melt was draining properly off the sidewalks. There we were, chipping ice off the sidewalk in huge, graceless chunks.
Yesterday morning things seemed to have swung back to normal, at least for the moment: it’s dropped back into the cold of the sub-zero teens, and the forecast for the next week seems to have leveled back out to, well… normal for January. (It left all the ice on the sidewalks, though. Thank you very much fake spring!)
So, are you enjoying this winter? Or are you looking forward to something a little warmer?
Just a note! In case you’re wondering about the somewhat, well, droll topic, here’s the thing: I’ve been playing around with selective integration of the poll plugin… for various reasons. Y’know, like, making it appear in certain spots and not others. This is pretty much a test post. Give it a vote to let me know how it works!
