TEN REASONS WHY I DON’T MISS NORTHERN WINTERS

1. Chapped Lips
Scabby, swollen, bleeding lips are not becoming.

2. Having to scrape a car windshield with a cheap piece of plastic.

3. Scooping the driveway and sidewalks & then scooping your elderly neighbor’s driveway and sidewalks because you’ll feel guilty if you don’t.

4. Slush
If one little iota of a pant leg touches the slush you’re done for.
Pant leg verses Kotex – and the winner is?

5. Grey skies and bare trees.
Nothing makes you feel more alive and productive than dead leaves and a dismal skyline. All those “think good thoughts/law of attraction” preachers must live in the south.

6. Closed toe shoes.
A new pair of boots can only keep you happy for so long.

7. Leather upholstery
Is an explanation even needed here?

8. Snake scales for skin

9. Dressing in layers
Cold outside, cold in car, suddenly hot in car, freeze when leaving car, hot again at destination, rinse & repeat several more times throughout the day.

10. Wearing trash bags to keep socks dry.
Trust me – Paris won’t be calling for those sketches anytime soon.

This is so so true. You have obviously lived thru a cold winter or two. One thing I really hate is when it's slushy and you run out of windshield wiper fluid-- it happened today and it sucks!!! But anyways, loved your thoughts on the subject and I hope you are enjoying the warm weather where you are.
