Yep this has been a bitch of a winter. I fell down several times on the ice - hard - and should have been way more injured than I was. The back yard has either been a frozen wasteland of ice and dog poop, or more recently a swampy marsh of mud and wetness. Dusty paw prints have been everywhere for months now. More often than not hanging out on the couch watching TV has required hoodies, socks and blankets. This is an outrage!
Spring is allegedly scheduled to arrive on Thursday with the Vernal Equinox. It can't come quick enough. The wacky weather and thermometer seem to be stabilizing a bit this week (for St. Louis) and temperatures will be drifting upwards as the week goes on. At last! But alas not for me. I am going on a business trip to Cleveland, OH on Friday and the forecast is cold and a bit snowy this weekend. I just can't escape it and my toes are cold all the time. I enjoy Game of Thrones, but enough is enough is enough. Come on Spring, hit us with your best shot. At least it will be warmer.
