Four letter words

February 18, 2014 - Brian Rowell
There’s too many four letter words being thrown around these days — namely snow and cold. This winter has been a challenge for even those of us that have called the U.P. home most of our lives. Unfortunately, there’s still a lot of winter left to go. What we all need is a healthy dose of optimism. If you want optimism, though, don’t take a look at the extend forecast. I just did. It’s more of the same. Snow... followed by a cold snap... followed by snow... I would cry, but my face would freeze. I tried to think about some good things associated with the cold and snow this morning when I was trying to find a place to put the new snow that had fallen overnight. here’s really no place left to put it anymore. Most of the real estate is already occupied by December and January snow. So, what’s good about winter? Here’s an optimistic viewpoint. - Your ice cream doesn’t melt. - No danger of tan lines. - The beaches are never crowded. - You can put off cutting the grass as long as you want. - Nobody says “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” - During a 25 below wind chill nobody is making a fashion statement. - Panicky people in Atlanta who see snow once every 20 years make us feel better about ourselves. - Using profanity becomes a socially acceptable way to describe snow. - No mosquitos out there. Who am I kidding. I’m no optimist. There’s nothing good about winter — at least not this winter. Hurry spring.
