Why I Love Winter

There's just so much energy in the air this time of year! No wait, that's static electricity. It has come to my attention that people like to become hysterical about abnormal weather, and that's fine as a form of entertainment. The Weather Channel has to make money too. 

Let's be honest--winter is inconvenient. It strands us, freezes us, and kills a vast majority of living things on Earth. Keep in mind, insects are the most numerous creatures on the planet. Poor little buggers just get annihilated.

I cannot get on Facebook this week without seeing thirty-seven pictures of something frozen. Maybe it's a freak-nasty puddle of water that has frozen in the overnight hours. Ahhhh! Icicles hanging from the side of a building might as well be road carnage--I just can't stop staring at it! It's so dramatic, isn't it? Beware of the frozen water that lurks in your neighborhood. You never know when it will jump out and get you!

Why am I being so stupid? Because I grew up in a place where snow covered the ground 7 months of the year and cold was a way of life. You prepared for it, you endured it, and you longed to see it go. Only crazy people like winter. I mean it. If that's you, you must see a doctor immediately. Cold is a curse and signifies death and forsakenness. However, being a wimp about it adds insult to injury.

I hate cold; but when the wind chills dip into single digits, I put on a sweater or sweatshirt under my jacket and suck it up. I might whine about it once in awhile--I'm human. Last time I checked our body was made to function at 98 F. Cold literally equals death. I know, heat can too; but water can usually solve that problem. 

Do I have a purpose or a goal in this post? No. I just wanted to add my two cents to the mix. Everybody else is getting traffic from all this weather hoopla--why not my blog?

I hope you stay safe and warm during these days of desolation. Warmer days are coming--sooner for some than others. Until then, don't be hysterical. Light something on fire and be warm.
