Well, according to the calendar it's Winter. It's hard to tell by any other means this season. Today is January 25. So far this season here in Kansas City, we have had an official total of 0.4 inches of snow. And that was spread out over two "snow events". And furthermore, temperatures have been consistently above normal. Many, many days in the upper 30s, 40s, and 50s. Very few days in the 20s.
I love Winter. I love cold weather and snow. Give me a season where it doesn't get above 40 between Nov. 15 and March 1, throw in lots of snow, and I'm good.
The last two Winters here we had over 30 inches of snow each season. Where are you Old Man Winter? Is it because I restocked the firewood?
It's looking like we'll be into February with less than a half inch of snow. Maybe we'll finally get a snowstorm next month. Or, we'll get one of those mid-March huge, heavy snows...
Thus endeth the Wintry Lament.
