Please welcome author, Diane Thorne, joining us with her romance of ANOTHER GIFT TO REMEMBER.
The worst winter in 18 years
I live in the Midwest, Indiana to be exact. Usually our winters are mild. Yes, we get some snow and cold temperatures, but for the most part the temps stay in double digits and the snow isn't bad. Well, the 2013/14 winter is one for the record books.
The last time I recall getting so much snow was the year I gave birth to my daughter, late 1995. Even though the snow was deep, the Government didn't shut down. In fact, the last time the Government shut all offices was during the blizzard of 1978. Well, that changed this year.
Old man winter decided to return in a big way. He came roaring into Indiana and he hasn't left yet. He came in so strong, the Government shut down for a day in early January. It was unbelievable, and I was very thankful. But every week, it's either more snow or arctic air coming in. The piles of snow I shoveled at the corners of my driveway will last a long time.
To make matters worse, the roads have an abundance of potholes. Some roads have craters. It's ridiculous. But what can we do when it snows every week and the plows have to clear the roads? As you can imagine, the auto shops are booming with business.
I'll also admit the short days and freezing cold weather drains me. I want to stay inside or in bed where I'm warm and comfortable in my pajamas. Now doesn't that sound better than walking in single digit or below zero temperatures? I guess it's good I work out at a gym four times a week.
Okay, the snow is pretty to watch as it falls. I get mesmerized staring out the window. But I've seen enough. I've driven through too much and I almost spun my car 360 degrees one night. I can handle the cold, but enough already with the snow. Go somewhere else old man winter!
Yes, my dear readers, I truly believe this is the worst winter in 18 years. I'm ready for Spring and I'm sure everyone else who lives in Indiana is too. Thanks for stopping by and wherever you are, I hope you are warm and safe.
Come on Spring!
