Winter is nature's way of saying, "Up yours."
It is almost noon here in Chicagoland, and our current temp. is -12 degrees. Yes, that is a minus sign in front of that 12. We are being told we may reach a high of -1 today. Brrrr! Tonight it is supposed to get down to near -20. I fear for my little stray kitty that I feed. I haven't seen him in a few days, although I did see some cat footprints in the snow this morning. I hope he found someplace warm to ride out the cold spell.
The weather people are saying we should be back up near 30 degrees this weekend. Well break out the kiddie pool, it'll feel downright balmy compared to now. I am counting the days until summer.
Where's Al Gore when you need him?
Summer afternoon - summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
