I know I am not alone in wanting to see an end to the longest.winter.ever. Here are a few things I will not miss when spring finally arrives:
Endless sweeping of snow-melter salt in the front hall.
Not being able to see over the mountain of snow on my lawn as I back out of my driveway.
The other mountain of snow that used to be my assigned parking spot at work. (Currently taking bets on when it will finally melt. Leaning towards May…)
My winter wardrobe.
Hands so dry my skin is cracking.
Obsessively checking the forecast for a sign the temperature is starting to rise.
Playing pass the cold germs with my family.
Worrying about what to do with the boys in the perfect storm of husband away on business+buses cancelled+schools still open (read: I have to work but have no way to get my kids to and from school).
Complaining about the cold.
Other people complaining about the cold.
People complaining about people complaining about the cold.
Not being able to complain about the heat.
*These I suspect will continue on as the snow turns to slush, and then the April showers begin. Fun times!
