The January That Just Won't Die

Thanks to global warming, or climate change, or planetary dissociative disorder, or what the hell else you want to call weather patterns we pathetic humans can't even begin to fathom, this Minnesota winter has been one of the worst in recent memory, at least going back to 2001. Of course, I predicted this (according to me), but that does little to soften the jagged, sharp edge of this most egregious winter onslaught.

We were granted a brief reprieve yesterday, with temps climbing into the 40s, with actual RAIN. That rain transmogrified into a nice treacherous sheet of ice overnight, as temps decided to mimic the housing market and plummet back into the familiar territory of a whole 5 whopping degrees. Gee, thanks, Mother Nature. Five degrees, huh? Your generosity knows no bounds.

And, to top the tater, it's snowing like crazy right now. From rain to full-fledged blizzard mode in less than 16 hours. Honestly, it's enough to make me question my sanity, and I STILL have February to endure. Great gobs of gopher guts.
