Here’s a seasonal look from here in my part of the world, Pittsburgh, PA…well, at least as I see it…
As fall comes to a close, It starts to get a bit gloomy. The sun doesn’t show up as often and when it does, it’s not around as long or as warm as it’s been not so long ago. Still, I hope it stretches out a little longer because I know what’s coming next. I fight it by holding out on wearing a jacket for as long as possible. It’s my little way of fighting back but I know I can’t win the battle.
Then mother nature can’t decide whether to rain or snow and I know it’s getting closer.
As it gets colder, I know I just have to accept that it’s coming but then I see the forecast and it might hit 60 degrees by the weekend and there’s hope. Break out the golf clubs for a bonus round…it’s not over yet!
And then one morning it hits…I wake up and look out the window and it’s all white…ugh! So there’s no more denial…it’s winter! I hope to get to the new year without any major snowfalls. I feel like that’s a win and at that point I’m on the other side of the mountain, rolling down hill to spring.
I fight thru the cold days of January and February and each day it stays light a little longer. Suddenly 35 degrees in March doesn’t feel as cold as 35 degrees in October. We get that one last heavy wet snowfall that only hangs around for a day or so and there’s a feel of having gotten thru another winter.
Pitchers and catchers report, spring is here. I like the change to spring the best…it feels more like the start of a new year to me than January 1st.
A new baseball season starts, the golf clubs come out and I know that the rain can’t last forever. Summer is right around the corner.
And before you know it, a different season starts and summer is coming to a close.
And I start the process all over again 🙂
Thanks to Tina…Travels and Trifles for this week’s Lens Artists Challenge theme.
Ah Andy, how well I remember seeing your version of seasons in the northeast. As a student in Loretto I remember it snowed at graduation in May 😫😫. Jersey wasn’t much better. Lost our largest tree in a freak April 1 wet snow. Now we only worry about hurricanes 😱😱. Enjoyed your seasonal sports analogy too
Yep, you know what it’s like Tina…although we’re a little more protected here than the Loretto area. And back in the college days, I think I remember snow being a fun thing…lol.
All the year around…but glorious it is to have our seasons!
Agree Leya, for the most part i do like the seasons 🙂
