Dark and Dreary

The past week has been an example of dark and dreary, cold and rainy days.

The word yuck comes to mind.

The rain and the chill have affected many people in different ways. Driving around the area has slowed to a crawl. Traffic snarled as drivers navigate rain clogged roads and the resultant accidents.

In a word--awful.

The four letter word associated with winter perception was used today and I think people were almost excited that the skies might be blue at the end of a snow event.

Not me--any snow is too much.

I still have not put the cinder blocks into the back of my truck for added traction. I'm in denial about the snow.

But the darkness continues. Days fade from gray into the black of night
and then back into gray again.

Ugh. Someone called me from Florida yesterday just to tell me that the sun was shining and it was 81 degrees. Definitely not gloomy.

Maybe that weather will make its way here--before July.

I was encouraged this morning though as I noticed stars in the still night sky while walking Makayla. Better weather may be ahead? 99 days until pool opening day (It is under a hundred!!)!
