It’s a long winter.
That’s what we tell each other when it’s cold and we can’t wait for the snow to melt, which it started doing a couple of weeks ago. Then, this week, right after the start of spring, we got snow again. I didn’t think it was that much, and couldn’t understand why my town plowed the streets for that little accumulation, but some members of my family could be heard miles around as they cried, “NOOOOoooooooooo!” to the skies.
It pretty much all melted by two days later.
