Here in Minnesota we have endured a very long winter. It started this year early in November with snow and cold and never let up UNTIL.. just this week. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.. praise him MORE without the SNOW?
Anyways, the snow is melting, temps are in the 50s and my cabin fever attitude is melting too. Soon I will be firing up the grill cooking burgers as my body acclimates to springtime.
I must confess my cabin fever.. was very bad this year, as winter kept right on freezing with temps abnormally low from Valentines Day early March. But,, that was then and this is now.
This week the forecast continues to be good with highs near 60 so soon and very soon ALL the snow will be a distant memory. March arrived like a FROZEN lion and hopefully leaves like a gentle lamb. I imagine even the mosquito population is putting away it's winter gear as they ready themselves for their 2015 blood sucking buffet.
I am so sick of winter I welcome heat with humidity and mosquitoes! Ok, scratch that.. I got carried away with my spring rant. Instead I am dreaming of a summer daytime temp of 75 degrees, sunny, light breeze in the air, and low humidity. <insert reflective pause> Too bad I cannot order weather like this from a menu.
So may God bless you where you are with a Spring and Summer to follow that makes this past winter a distant BAD memory. May your attitude remain sunny and warm even when you have cabin fever sheltered this time inside an unbearable stretch of HEAT n HUMIDITY that looks like it will never end.Blessings, Jeff
