The February Blues

     Stuck in the February blues, also known as, the when is this winter going to end blues. Winter starts out some time in November and just goes on and on.

      It is nice in December when we get snow for Christmas and everything is  postcard white. Then January comes along and it still seems alright. Then February arrives and it just seems like the longest month of the year.

  In reality, February is the shortest month, but I guess the anticipation of March only makes it seem longer. People that live in Montreal, know what I mean. February can be a crazy month weather wise. Last Friday was a perfect example of this, we had snow, sleet, freezing rain, and 100 Kmh winds. People were holding onto trees, the sidewalks were a skating rink, it was a perfect mess.

  What is hard about February is that it seems like a huge bump in the road and you can almost smell spring on the other side. The smell of spring seems to be in the air, it is just being hidden by the snow and the cold.

  I have decided that today is the time to get out of the February funk, I am officially starting the one week countdown today. We are into the homestrectch as they say, next Wednesday, it will be March, YOUPPI !!!
