Top Ten Reasons TO Wish Winter Away

A few weeks ago we published our Top Ten Reasons NOT to Wish Winter Away. After a big snowstorm in many areas and some “numbingly cold” temperatures, 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).

(Continued Below)

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.

1. Fishing/gardening and baseball season.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
