The Wintertime Blues

Don't get me wrong, the winter can be a great time of the year. I'm having a lot of fun snowboarding and skiing lately. But today I found myself daydreaming about the upcoming summer. I miss biking and being out in the woods on my bike and the warm temperatures. I'm trying to line up a nice job for the summer. My parents are lending me one of their cars, so I'll actually be able to go places when I want to. Hopefully it'll be a good time...

I just have to make it through one tough semester of school and snow.

Hmmmm, kinda reminds me of the new episode of South Park. I should bury myself in a snowbank and freeze myself, then when the snow melts in spring, I'll wake up and I won't have to wait for months for warmer weather.

I freakin' hate winter. I look forward to 12/22. I start watchin' the paper for the sunrise/sunset times, and revel in the fact that the days are slowly, but oh-so-slowly gettin' longer. I know it's not a big change by day at this point, but it's more of a psychological thing. I don't like winter. I love sunshine and summer.

Winter? It hasn't even dropped below 50 during the day here. I think it may have gotten down to 30 once or twice at night. This is the warmest, dryest winter I have ever experienced. I'm still riding in shorts for Pete's sake!

Hey, mistah, it's only 37F here right now. Assuming no major rainshowers tomorrow, I'm getting my tire changed out, and then ridin' like the wind for about 30 miles. In cycling shorts.

I think it is interesting what happens in the winter. I think a lot of the winter "blues" are possibly quite normal. It's really cold here right now. It isn't supposed to break freezing until sometime next week. It's funny because our normally robust 9 month old puppy has finally decided to say "screw it."

He just lays around and would be perfectly fine to sleep all day. He spent the entire morning sleeping in a bunch of pillows on the bed, and has finally managed to walk downstairs and curl up in a bean bag. Seems sort of normal for things to slow down in winter.

I have to at least put on a wife beater and a t-shirt.

Hey, I don't care what you hippies in San Fran do or how you dress. Just don't show up commando in the U.P. and expect to get a 'warm' welcome...
