Have you ever noticed that the change from summer to fall and fall to winter are much easier to bear that the change from winter to spring? Especially here in NE Ohio. After Christmas it’s dark, gray and cold and you just kind of muddle through. You get used to it. Sort of.
Then comes the mean season.
It’s that season at the end of winter and the beginning of spring where Mother Nature is, well, just kind of mean.
You’ll have balmy 45° (F) temperatures one day with sunny blue skies where everyone is out without coats and a few brave souls even drag out their motorcycles.
Then the next day is MEAN!
It’s 12° and snowing HARD. The wind is howling and ripping shingles off the roof.
Oh,wait. The shingle thing may only apply to us.
And then it rains and snows – or snains – for a few days.
You don’t feel like writing, or crafting or even DIY-ing.
(That one might only apply to me but I don’t think so!)
Not even a glimpse of sun and warm temperatures.
Mother Nature gets mean, the people get mean and I think that even the wild critters feel kind of mean.
Everyone you meet speaks in monosyllables or grunts. No one is chipper and hardly anyone smiles. Blerg.
So while the calendar says it’s spring we still have a bit of snow on the ground and people are grumpy.
But it’s almost here!
The mean season is almost over and that means warm air, sunshine and SMILES!
