There’s a saying about the Midwest. If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.
It’s especially true right now. It’s January 3rd and we’ve already hit 3 seasons.
Fall: the leaves are still falling from the trees. You get little wind tunnels.
Spring: It RAINED all day yesterday. But it wasn’t super cold. It felt NICE :O
Winter: It’s back today with a vengeance and we’re expecting snow tomorrow.
Hello, Winter. It’s “nice” to have you back.
This storm system has caused the next day as well to be cancelled, not just today. Oh boy!
What is the deal with Saturdays? This is the 4th Saturday in a row that we’ve had “wintry weather”. WTH? This is starting to get NUTS. Every freaking Saturday?
