Top Ten Reasons To Wish Winter Away

Spring officially arrives on March 20th but many of us have been ready for awhile. Here are the top 10 reasons why it's time to say goodbye to winter.

In the past, we’ve shared our story, Top Ten Reasons NOT to Wish Winter Away. After some big snowstorms in many areas just this past week, we decided that it IS finally time to wish winter goodbye.

Here’s why:

10. The birds are getting hungry and birdseed supply is getting low.

9. Muscles are aching from too much snow shoveling (and there’s no room to put the shoveled snow).

8. Can’t tell if that’s snow on the car or road salt.

7. Sweaty feet from wearing boots all the time.

6. More hours of daylight! Get out and enjoy.

5. Too many movie/TV nights. No more couch time. Let’s get outside and enjoy
some of nature’s entertainment.

4. Green grass is a much better and happier color.

3. The ability (and desire) to go outside without bundling up in layers.

2. Smell of spring flowers and the return of leaves.

And the number one reason to wish winter away is…

1. Fishing, Gardening, and Baseball!

I reside in the upper Midwest and the worst part of this year’s winter was the polar vortex. I live in a small older brick apt. bldg. (built prior to the advent of insulation). Even indoors you had to wear multi-layers of clothing to stay warm.
