The groundhogs lied to us!

frozen_windowsill.jpgAccording to both Punxsutawney Phil and Staten Island Chuck we were supposed to get an early Spring this year. Well, it’s March 19th and it’s not Spring yet! Based on early last week’s 60 degree start, I thought we had turned the corner, but apparently I was wrong.

What makes it worse is the frozen rain I just experienced on my walk home. Frozen rain plus a slight breeze plus no umbrella equals what feels like thousands of razor blades on your face. I can honestly say that I’m over Winter and just want Spring to get here already.

And to add insult to injury, those wonderful folks at Dunkin’ Donuts are giving away a free cup of iced coffee on Wednesday. Iced Coffee? When it’s going to be 40? Who was the brilliant marketing person that thought that one up?

There is one advantage to the cold lasting this long…you can defrost your freezer and not lose any frozen items by placing them on you kitchen windowsill, as my neighbor has done. Well done 3A, well done.
