When trying to compare the last two winters, I think that although last year was snowier, this year was so much colder. I don’t know what is worse! I think I’d have to say the cold. I was miserable this year. I didn’t ever want to leave my house and that is so unlike me! I live so close to work that my car never had enough time to warm up before getting there. I would freeze from the minute I stepped out my door each day.
So today, when the temperature hit 50 degrees, I nearly jumped for joy! Normally, I would never be rejoicing for a 50 degree day, but after what we’ve been through it was glorious! Drew was outside in shorts playing hockey with friends. I am not nearly at the extreme, but I did take Emmy Lou out for her walk in just a sweatshirt so that is a step in the right direction.
That extra hour of daylight to end each day always makes me happy. We are due for a week of mild temperatures. As the snow melts, I just pray it doesn’t all find it’s way into my basement. If we can avoid that – it will be perfect! If only the rest of March could stay like this leading us right into Spring. Fingers crossed it does!
