The Blast of Winter

It is incredibly cold outside.

Over the past week this part of the world has had considerable snow. I believe the totals in the New England area vary between 36 and 40 inches since last Tuesday. Not only has it been incredibly cold and snowy but there have been periods of high winds as well.

If you think about it, there has been very little snow this winter until now. And the predictions have been consistent that this is supposed to be a high quantity winter as far as the snow is concerned. I would say that the weather over the past week has more than made up for any shortfalls that there would be.

As I sit writing this I am at work. Waiting for the phone to ring. Expecting nothing more than a busy day when all is said and done. And I don't feel especially well; I am tired and I'm dealing with some mild to moderate nausea. The only thing I can think is causing the nausea is the possibility that I picked up a stomach bug from my grand-daughter. She has been sick since Sunday. I am hoping, however, that she is starting to come around and feel better. At the moment she is either with her father or well enough to have gone to school. I don't know which.

There are some things that are better than winter. Actually there are many things that are better than winter. Like summer. And warm days. And the feel of the sun on your face in the morning. Also, there is nothing like a good glass of lemonade on ice when it is hot. Or a cookout. Or being in the stands at a baseball game. These are all good things.

I miss the summer, especially when the weather is a cold as it is now. I do know, however, that spring will come first. The best part is that pitchers and catchers report in a little over 2 weeks.
