How would you answer this statement — does winter seem long this year? Personally, I like winter. I like snow. I especially like winter when the Farmers’ Almanac accurately predicts the snow we get. But this year, I’m ready for spring…now!
Here in New Jersey, we got winter early. It started a little before Christmas and came in fast and furious in January. We had at least two storms a week for about 5 weeks. February comes and the storms slowed down. We even had a 63-degree day in February! Of course it snowed three days later.
This morning I had a conversation with a friend of mine who also agreed… this winter seems long. The past few winters came late, at least here in NJ. Last year the snowy weather came in February. This year winter came earlier. Is that why I am ready for spring now? Or is it because of the many grey days we’ve had this winter. I think I can count on my one hand the number of full sunny, blue-sky days we’ve had since the beginning of January.
What do you think? Does winter seem long or no? I know two things are true: I’m really glad I live in a place that experiences a change of seasons and that the official start of spring is now less than a month away!
