No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. ~Hal Borland
I know we'll get spring eventually. I just know we will. I know this snow will melt. I know it. But sometimes knowing things and feeling things are two different things. It feels like this winter will never end.
I don't hate winter. I like the snow and the little bit of hibernation that I feel justified slipping into. But, it's now April 17th and we're on another round of 3-9 inches of snow in the forecast. Maybe it's just my Facebook newsfeed full of complaints about the weather that is bringing me down.
I need to stay away from my window, my computer, and the local weather reports for the next two days. I should keep my nose in my book, only surfacing occasionally to eat and make more coffee. I'm suffering a bit from cabin fever. But if I just keep my head down, I can escape into a book and forget about the LONGEST snow melt EVER. Did I mention that this book takes place in Virginia (the state, not the northern Minnesota city)? It's a lot more green in the book.
I'll just keep my head down.
Eventually it will stop snowing.
Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush. ~Doug Larson
