Dear Mr. Winter

Dear Mr. Winter:

I know that you've had a wonderful time this season.  You've been able to stop entire cities from doing normal business.  There have been more 'snow days' from work than I remember ever having in the last 10 years.  Folks are still wearing winter coats and leg warmers and sweaters and socks even though Spring is just around the corner. And I am way more familiar with internet weather sites than I ever aspired to know.

Today is the 16th of March and that means Spring is just a few days away.  It appears you decided to make one more attempt to conquer the world.  I awoke to freezing rain stuck to the windows, making it appear like icicles on the glass.

I suspect we got a total of 2 inches of snow today.  And tomorrow it's supposed to get to the mid 50's.  So your feeble attempt to make us all aware of you is wasted. Now, don't get your knickers in a twist, that was NOT a challenge to you...just an observation.

I'm hoping you had a fun time, but most of the people I know, including myself, think you have outlasted your welcome from last November.  It's time to pack up your playthings and make room for Miss Spring to arrive  on Friday.  

And Gilligan is just plain bored with you!
