Winter isn’t even a month old…..and I’m tired of it. We’ve already had more than our fair share of lake effect snow, high winds and single digit temps. This has resulted in numerous school closings, travel bans and power outages. And just so we don’t get bored, this morning we’re being pelted with FZRA, which is meteorologists’ code for freezing rain.
You know what else I’m tired of ? I’m tired of not being able to bend at the elbows, waist or knees because I’m wearing four layers of clothing.
So, today I’m kicking ‘Ole Man Winter right in his frosty gonads.
I’m going to crank the thermostat to 92, put on a sundress and flip flops, make a big pitcher of iced tea, dig out the red-and-white checkered picnic tablecloth and serve macaroni salad and B-B-Qued chicken for dinner. I’m going to turn on the ceiling fans, listen to The 100 Greatest Summer Songs of All Time and play a round of Wii-golf.
And if it’s still FZRAing tomorrow, I swear I’m busting out the bathing suits.
