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.
