If I wanted to live in a winter wonderland, I’d move to Buffalo, Michigan, or one of the Dakotas. Between the polar vortexes (vortices?) and what seems like unending snow storms, I’m this close to packing all my shit up and moving to Florida.
At least this most recent storm had the decency to ruin the commute, causing just about everything to shut down, including my shopping center (the only other time it has closed in the almost 6 years I’ve worked there was during Hurricane Sandy because there was no power). Mr. qSS also called it a day, so we lounged around (once the driveway and walkways were cleared, of course) and watched bad TV all day. It was nice to have a day together, but I’d much prefer to play hooky when it’s sunny and 75.
If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, how are you handling this winter? Are you silently (or not so silently) cursing Punxsutawny Phil for seeing his shadow?
