Where I live – in Connecticut – we’ve had a mostly easy Winter, perhaps more easier than other parts of the country. For those of you who’ve read my past blog articles, you already know my total disdain for the Winter season, which’ll come to an end early next week (on March 20th). So far this month, we’ve had it relatively easy in terms of weather – which I hope continues into the warmer months.
However, my mother – who’s lived in Connecticut longer than I have – has predicted that there’ll be a foot of snow in our area come next month. Personally, I hope that it doesn’t happen – partly because I want to put this winter season behind me (and I’m sure others living in this part of the country would agree with me in regards to this sentiment). On the other hand, as Albert Einstein once said, “God doesn’t play dice with the universe” – and I’m sure that it also applies to Mother Nature and Old Man Winter. Connecticut has experienced a number of snowstorms in past Aprils over the state’s long history – and believe me, I’ve experienced several of them (with some of them to my personal regret). Trust me, when you want to start Spring on a positive note, the last thing that you need is a major snowstorm ruining your good mood (and especially if you live in the Midwest and Plains section of the country – where snowstorms are a occurrence at this time of year – thus making anyone living there wish that they were in a warmer climate).
Right now, I’m enjoying the weather that has come our way – and I’m hoping that it stays that way right into the Spring months. On the other hand, I can’t predict what’ll happen within the next few weeks (or even the next few months) in terms of weather – but then, that’s probably one reason why I’m a writer and not a mind-reader. Or a meteorologist.
