It’s been a Long Cold Lonely Winter

This morning, when I walked outside with the dog to get the morning paper, it seemed warmer. It was still thirty four degrees but after the past few mornings when the mercury hung just below 20, this morning it felt downright balmy.

How sick is that?

This has been a brutal winter. Usually, winters in Maryland are sprinkled with a sixty degree day here and there but not this winter. Since Thanksgiving it has felt like one long cold spell. I’ve even forgotten what nice weather feels like.

I am so done with winter. Even my dog has had it. Last night when we went out for our walk by the time she got to the end of the driveway she turned around and headed back towards the house. Now word comes from Mr. Foot and his forecasters that, as early as Sunday, we could see another major storm.

Arrghh!

At this point we will be lucky if we see our lawns by Easter.

Welp, stay off my site. The Weather Service has ideas that will make you shiver.

The snow makes the air cooler, but we have the snow because of the increased moisture in the air. We have increased moisture due to evaporation. What causes evaporation? Heat. Sorry, had to say it for the non-analyticals.
