I'm officially tired of winter

Yes, it's true. Even me, eternal optimist, is getting tired of it. And you know what -- it's not winter itself, it's the uncertainty of winter.

I hate schlepping my laptop home in case it snows. I hate not being able to make plans in case it snows. I hate prefacing every conversation with "Weather permitting, I can do that."

Yep. It's getting loooonnnnng. Of course, it is useful in a way. I'm incorporating the brutal cold into a book, and it made for some interesting research... If a person freezes to death because of carelessness on the part of someone, is that person charged with reckless endangerment?

Involuntary manslaughter? There are fine lines between them all.

So I guess winter is useful after all. But it's still way too long.
