you ain't fooling anybody
You see, dear readers, yours truly lives in the frozen tundra, way up north, so far north you would never even think of going there for fear of becoming a popsicle. (and thats the way we want it)
What usually happens in the frozen tundra in the winter, I say what usually happens in the frozen tundra in the winter? (shout out to Foghorn Leghorn) Thats right, all ye who read this blog, thats righ - snow, cold, ice, wind. But alas, this year we never had more than 3-4 inches of snow on the ground. No cold, some ice, little wind. Its like the universe has turned upside down and we are having fall in winter.
TODAY, MARCH 14, 2012 I ACTUALLY WENT OUT WITHOUT A COAT. NO COAT, people. It is 68 balmy degrees outside. There is no snow, no ice. The trees are budding. They too have been fooled.
Here's the thing, I am not fooled. I have lived here too long, suffered too much. I KNOW we will pay the price for this brief respite. I haven't yet put away my galoshes, my hand warmers, my shovel. YOU DON'T FOOL ME MOTHER NATURE. I am on to you. Next week I anticipate 2 feet of snow. It is basketball tournament time and we all know what happens then: blizzard.
All the other fools are gleefully frolicing through the dead grass. They have put away their moon boots. Not I. I stand ready, poised for the deluge I know is coming.
