Weirdness...

I understand that the weather isn't awfully nice in some other parts of the country, but it was 70 degrees here today! I spent half the afternoon sitting on the porch reading and watching the world go by (and around here when it hits 70, everybody is out and about).

It seems as if Winter lasted from December 14th to December 27th- and we packed a lot in in that brief span, lemme tell you- it snowed (a dusting), and it got cold for a few nights...

The Magnolia out front is about to burst into bloom. I know, I know, even talking about all this is asking for trouble from the WinterGods, and it will probably be 6 degrees with three feet of snow next week, but still, when it hits 70 in January something weird is going on.

I really am disappointed in this weather, but probably not for the reasons some think. I have leaved east of the Mississippi all of my life. For all of those years, I watched the weather reports for out west and thought that the weather was always much nicer out there.

Now I am living out west and it is colder than I ever remember it being in the east. Every day I wake up to the weather channel telling me that it is above 50 in the east and below 20 out here.

God hates me.

mike- it isn't that God hates you, it's that he apparently loves Mormons, and Mormons love their tag-team snow shoveling thing.

No, Mike, don't listen to the Colonel. It's you. Take it personally. Because this is the coldest, snowiest early winter we've had in years.

This time of year, I'm used to sunny days and highs in the 40s. Sure, we maybe get a few inches of snow here and there, but then the sun comes out the next day, and it all melts. Now, two and a half weeks later, I've STILL got a three-foot drift outside my office window. It's crazy.

And, apparently, it's all Mike's fault.

Yeah, Phoebe, I knew God had it in for me. This just proves it.

hmmm... all right, let's test this. Mike, can you be in San Diego next Sunday and turn the Patriots-Chargers game into a SnowBowl?
