Winter's hangover

March 2, 2010 - Jennifer Brookens

"I feel so sluggish."

"Yeah. Like no motivation. Just blah."

I've had this conversation more than once lately. We're all burnt out. And I blame a burned-out subject: the weather.

But it's March now. And if I recall, on the first day of December, I was still walking outside without a coat and we had 40-degree temperatures. Yet only a week later, the parade of craptacular winter storms began. And a few years before that, we were seeing 50-degree and one time even 70-degree weather in the first week of March. Yes folks, the season will soon change!

And despite the "slug" feeling, I take heart in that there's not as much snow covering the roads anymore (though still more than plenty in snowpile form). There was also a news story on TV of people already filling sandbags in preperation for spring floods. OK, so I don't delight in that, but it's a sign that winter's almost over.

Soon my driveway, alley and yard will be mudbog city, and the car washes will be the most popular places in town. Oh, and lets not forget the potholes hiding underneath all those puddles. But after that comes the fun stuff... the flowers, the smell of fresh-cut grass, and cooking on the grill.

Ah, spring. Bring it on!
