This Blows!

This Blows!


Seems like it was just a few weeks ago that temperatures were in the 80’s. Probably because it was just a few weeks ago that temperatures were in the 80’s. Looks like we’re skipping fall this year and heading straight into winter. It went from the 80’s to the 40’s and keeps dropping. Went right past the 60’s and 50’s.

We should be allowed to ease into it. Like getting in a hot bath. Don’t just end summer and smack us right in the face with winter.

On Thursday the weather is calling for rain, sleet, snow and dark of night…even the mailman is saying,

“Why did I take that stupid oath? Nobody should have to go out in this!”

It didn’t take the first day of cold weather this year before people were telling me,

“They’re calling for a really bad winter with a lot of snow.”

Now, I don’t know who they are, but I hate them. If you are them, I don’t need to hear things like this in October. Why don’t you just say?

“It’s going to be an unseasonably warm winter with temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s. Then I can be disappointed when it doesn’t happen instead of dreading it in advance. I don’t know who “THEY” think they are.

The weather man tried to soften the news today by saying,

“It could be worse. At least we’re not dealing with fires like they are in California.”

Yeah, we’re not getting swarms of locusts or seas boiling red with blood either if you want to rationalize. Why don’t you just speak the truth?

“It could be a hell of a lot better. Remember a couple of weeks ago when it was in the 80’s?

If any of you complained during the 90 degree stretch and wished for cooler temperatures, this is your fault. I think the bears have it right. Crawl in a hole and sleep for a few months until the warm weather comes back.

Come to think of it, I could just crawl into bed with the remote and wait it out. But then, who would shovel the damn driveway?

If you’re one of those people who enjoy this time of year, please e-mail me so I can help you get on the right medications. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m heading out to the deck to have a cigar.

Oh, that’s right…This blows! See you in April.
