Cloudy Days and Tuesdays
I believe that I speak for everyone when I exclaim, "What is up with this weather?!" I thought the whole point of suffering through infernal summers was that we could call our Yankee relatives in February and brag about how we are puttering around in shorts and flip-flops with pale, furry legs, sipping iced tea and planning our winter gardens.
I just wish the lakes would fill up so that we could stop feeling like we need the rain and cloudy days. I grow weary of muddy paw marks on my surfaces (floors, sofas, pant legs) and the agonized groan of worn-out wipers dragging themselves across a rain-smeared windshield. Look, I'd even make a deal. The rain can stay, but can the temps crawl up about 10 degrees. Sixty-five. That was a great year and an acceptable temperature.
Thanks for listening. I gotta go walk a dog in the wet.
