Last Hurrah

The rain came last night. And with temps dipping into the low 30's even the 20's not a good sign.

And, as you would expect the rain turned to snow. Not as much as I was worried about, just a couple inches, but still. Rain, ice, snow.

It's almost the middle of April. I figure this is Winter's last hurrah. So I'll give him that. But Damn.

And that got me to thinkin'. In typical Tammi fashion I "personify" the seasons.

Summer? Female. I picture her in those long flowing gowns from medieval times. Dark green with a white cape. Long blond hair. Ageless, but smiling.

Fall? Male. I see him as a young man. Dressed in brown, again medieval flavor to the clothing. Almost like a scarecrow, now that I try to describe whats in my minds eye. Playful, full of fun.....

Winter? Male. Old man with long flowing white hair and beard. No - not Santa-like. "Royal" like. And, excuse the phrasing, with a cold expression his face. No smiling, a twinkle in the eye the denotes mischief, but still cold. Cruel.

Spring? Female. Young, with long dark flowing hair. A smile that lights everything. She is wearing a gown, similar to Summer but in those pastel colors.

I know, it's just weird to do this, but I've always personified "things". It's part of the active imagination I'm blessed with.

So anyway - I figure last night Winter looked at the calendar and realized his time was just about up and panicked. He hadn't created nearly enough havoc this year. He needed one last blow-out. So he locked the door - hell, barricaded it - and went to work. Pulled out some of his best stuff.

And today we pay the price. I can just see him, sittin' in his chair, satisfaction written on his face.


I just hope he enjoyed himself, cause this is IT for this winter. I'm puttin' my foot down!!!

Boo on winter!

But Grau...since it is Old Man Winter, aren't you afraid that your foot might get *frozen* and stuck in his backside???

My calluses can cut through ice just fine. And flesh, drywall, carpet, socks, and mattress tops :)
