It's all my fault, this cold weather we're having.
You see, we were having such a warm winter -- days in the high 30's and even 40's. I was afraid that our scheduled trip to Florida, to get out of freezing weather, would be in vain if that warm weather kept up.
Last year at this time, it was in the low single digits. Low. Single. Digits. Last year at this time, I was praying for some warmth, some sunshine, some reprieve from the cold weather. Last year at this time, I promised myself that next year we'd take a vacation to someplace warm during the kids' Mid-Winter break.
Which is next week.
But, last week, on Thursday, we had a really strange weather day. It was downright balmy. It was 59 degrees. Fifty-Nine. That's just about shorts weather in these parts.
So, I did it.
I made the fateful wish....I wished that the would get really, really cold....so that our trip to Florida would be worth it.
That, my friends, is why it's 12 degrees outside now, with a windchill of 6.
Now, we can go to Florida.
