An Open Letter to February

Dear February,

Please take your snow, your ice, your sleet, your cold winds, your gray skies, your slick roads, and your nasty, dirty slushy crud. We no longer have any use for any of it.

We'd like you to return our blue skies, our green grass, our delicately unfurling leaves, our sunny yellow daffodils and our softly scented lilacs. We miss them.

(and probably most of the midwest)

Oh, hell yeah. *watches as the temp slowly creeps above 0F*

Love Dar Williams. :)

Bronwyn Green said...

I should have known you were a Dar girl. :D Her live shows are great - she's so funny. I've seen her four times now and would go again in a heartbeat.

How do you feel about Ani Difranco?

Chris said...

I haven't seen Dar perform, alas.

I definitely have some favorite (older) Ani, but I usually have to be in the right mood to listen to her.

Janna said...

Do you think you'll get a response ;)
I do like the pictures in the video though!

I hope you have time for a meme, because I've tagged you:

Bronwyn Green said...

@ Chris - older Ani is always preferable. Much like older Tori. It's just the way of things.

@ Janna - Of course there will be no response from February, because February is a rude and hateful month. (Yeah...I *really* need it to be spring)

I'd love to build a BBF - I think it sounds like fun. :) It might take me a day or so, but I'm on it!

Janna said...

Lol, re February! I wouldn't mind if it was Spring again, but I'm born in the Winter so maybe that helps...

Wonderful that you'll build your book boyfriend!

@Chris: see, that's how you be a good sport about memes ;)

Chris said...

@Janna: :p

Unknown said...

Hell yes!

My daughter informed me the other day that she has only gone to school 4 days this month. 5 counting today. And if this snow doesn't go the f' away, she won't be there tomorrow either.

Stupid February


Kris Norris said...

Ya know... you could just move out west... no snow and plus ten... was out riding my mountain bike today.

Are you jealous... there's a reason I don't live in Toronto anymore.

Hope winter leaves soon. I remember the February blues well.


Chris said...

Altho... Toronto's had barely any snow this winter (from what friends tell me) - mostly rain.

Molly Daniels said...

I'm ready to move to a more tropical climate. And Janna, I'm a winter baby too, but I think the temps were mild that day (giggle). I'm happy with temps no colder than 50 and no hotter than 100:)

Margaret Yang said...

"And then the snow came, we were always out shoveling, and we dropped to sleep exhausted and we wake up...and it's snowing."

Yes. This. All freaking month long. I am soooooo done.

Genella deGrey said...

Thank Gawd Feb is the shortest month.

Simone Anderson said...

I'm so with you. I'm done with February too.
