Battle Lines



On Wednesday it reached a whopping 70+ degrees. I told myself, it is still winter bring your coat. Naturally, I fully regretted that decision by mid afternoon when I was sweltering under my wool coat as I walked about. Or as I nicely posted on Wednesday…


The temps have since dropped steadily since Wednesday afternoon. It’s now Friday, with an expected high of 41 degrees which has already come and gone. This morning I happily pulled on my wool coat, grabbing a hat, scarf and gloves not seen since last week . Even so the temperatures continue to drop more as the day progresses.

So Ol’ Man Winter has remembered we’re still in his purlieu and has remembered with a vengeance, as tomorrow’s expected high is a brutal 19 degrees.

Tomorrow, I will be hanging out with my offspring. While I am looking forward to seeing them, I am not looking forward to Jack Frost’s rendition of Shakespeare’s Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks!

We’re smack in the lion’s jaw right now in his annual battle with the lamb for seasonal supremacy. Three days into March and it’s already looking to be a doozey. Forget what that stupid groundhog said, you can do this Lamb!

  1. Immediately, I started singing this:

    Song: “Blow, blow, thou winter wind”

    Blow, blow, thou winter wind,
    Thou art not so unkind
    As man’s ingratitude;

    Thy tooth is not so keen,
    Because thou art not seen,
    Although thy breath be rude.

    Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
    Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:
    Then, heigh-ho, the holly!
    This life is most jolly.

    Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
    That dost not bite so nigh
    As benefits forgot:

    Though thou the waters warp,
    Thy sting is not so sharp
    As friend remembered not.

    Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly…

  2. We are now at 28 degrees here. Today we had snow flurries and bright sunshine. I did not put my winter coat away and have no plans on doing so anytime soon.

    • Thanks Merlinetet78, it’s still winter, so I’m comfortable with being right, granted it’s a literal *cold* comfort, but one I’m prepared for. *smiles *

So? What do you think?
