Winter Needs the Heave-Ho

If we want to live in a northern latitude, to the winter’s weather, we must adjust our attitude. In the cold temperatures, we have to thrive. Keeping warm is what we need to stay alive. I certainly never get any joys or thrills when I have to pay higher heating bills. If I want to enjoy myself on any winter’s day, shoveling snow is certainly never the way. Fender benders make all the claims adjusters sick whenever the roads get icy and slick. I want to see the flowers in my garden grow. To ballgames and beaches is where I want to go. I want to give winter the heave-ho. January 24, 2013
