Alright, people… if you’re like me, then winter depresses you the fuck out. The short days, the cold weather, the lack of vitamin D from the sun, the beige color that seems to cover the world because there’s no greenery around. I love snow on Christmas, but after Christmas I’m like, Ok that was fun….SUMMER PLEASE!
And about this time of year, after Winter has already been around for months…. I start getting restless. I start NEEDING sun. NEEDING warmth. I start DREAMING of hot weather.
But I today, I saw the first little sprouts of tulips. The true sign that spring isn’t too far off. And, I’ve done some calculations.
It’s February 19th. That means it’s only 9 days until March 1st. March signals the death of the winter. The sun finally starts to win the battle against the dreaded cold. On April 1st, it’s relatively assured that there will be no more snow.
So, that means we only have 40 days until we can put away the winter coats and never think about them again until next November.
And then, by May 1st, the trees are in bloom once more, and the grass is getting green, and we can go back to wearing hoodies and nothing more! So, that’s only 70 days until we have green buds on trees and hoodies or sweaters.
We can do this. YOU HEAR ME? WE GOT THIS! Winter is on it’s way out!
Just remember that. Armageddon ends in 9 days
Winter coats can officially be stowed away in the closet in 40 days
And we are only 70 days away from green trees and hoodie weather.
Eye on the prize, eye on the prize, EYE ON THE PRIZE!!!!!!!
