It has been cold here of late. Not merely chilly, but cold; life threatening cold. Local temperatures have touched -10 at home and -20 a bit north at the cabin. Not unusually cold for the time of the year in these parts. What is unusual is that the cold has lingered for two weeks and looks to linger a bit longer.
On top of that, local weather forecasters (the tarot card readers of the science world) have issued a winter storm warning for tomorrow. High accumulations of powdery snow combined with blowing winds; perfect for planting a huge drift in my driveway.
My idle thoughts are of summer (just as they are of winter during summer). Lawn mowing, leafy trees, Bluegrass festivals; some of what makes summer...summer. Lawnmowers fly in my daydream, and an unseen group plays Cotton-eyed Joe.
How badly do you miss summer?
