I’m not usually a winter whiner. I’m not a person who enjoys being hot, and haven’t ever really minded bundling up and trekking out in our beloved 4wd wagon. I thought that getting through changing a flat tire (thanks likely to our streets which are currently more pothole than pavement) in subzero temperatures meant that I had survived the worst of this particularly cold, snowy and grey (even for Chicago) season, but alas this winter has once again kicked my butt — literally, this time, via a fall on the ice that busted my tailbone.
So I am continuing to wince through the pain, learn how to sit in all kinds of new-fangled ways, and avoid going outside whenever not absolutely necessary.
Meanwhile, Alli, who still often views things in black and white, is actually visibly angry that the snow didn’t make way for spring when the calendar flipped to March. “But, Mommy, I don’t have to wear snowpants anymore. It’s MARCH now!”
And today’s forecast:
March 4, 2008
Rest of Today…Considerable cloudiness. A 30 percent chance of light snow late in the afternoon. Blustery. Highs in the lower 30s. Northeast winds 15 to 25 mph. Gusts up to 30 mph in the late morning and early afternoon.
Tonight…Mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of snow in the evening…then partly cloudy. Lows in the lower 20s. North winds 10 to 20 mph.
Freakin’ Jack Frost, getting his jollies at our expense.
