There are a lot of things I love about Idaho. . .however, winter has not been one of them for a while now. It was actually pretty nice here and I though spring was just around the corner, but I was very wrong. The main reasons I dislike Idaho winters is the length of them. It has been cold and miserable now for over 4 months. The closer we get to March it did seem that at least the roads were staying dry and the sun would make an appearance a couple of times a week. My lungs don't really like this cold weather. I don't get out much due to the lengthy cold and flu season and the cold air is just not enjoyable. I was betting on that dumb groundhog to be right but he let me down. Today (and the rest of the week) is snowy, cold and blizzard warnings.
I just hate the road conditions. It keeps me from wanting to drive anywhere and I worry about the people I love who have to be out driving on the crummy roads. So to combat my "winter blues" Bryan and I took a short vacation to warmer climate. We drove to Phoenix, AZ and soaked up their 80 degree weather and hiked in the sunshine. It was heavenly. I hoped that by the time we returned the weather would be tolerable. ummmm, nope. worse actually. Oh well, I got to enjoy Phoenix and my lungs also enjoyed it. I'm hoping this is the last of winter and this snow storm will melt off soon and stay off. . .but I know better. Winter refuses to leave. So I might resort to reverse psychology . . . ."I hope it snows forever. . ." I'm willing to try anything at this point. lol
