Hello February

It seems like everyone hates February. I often hear people say that the only good thing about is that it's short. It's true that we have had some of our worst weather ever in February but to me February feels sort of... I'm not sure this is the word I really want to use but sort of hopeful. This is because the days are getting noticeably longer. It's a little less dark. It's increasingly possible to imagine spring. (March, on the other hand, makes me impatient because it's usually still cold in March and it starts to feel like winter will never end.)

Saturday it was 80F. Today it's gray and cold, more like February is "supposed to be" but that's okay. I had Saturday and today it's still not freezing and the sun will come out and it will warm up again soon. February is okay.

I took the picture in this post a few minutes ago, between 8:15 and 8:30.


  1. It's not freezing here but it sure feels close. (it's in the 40s with a cold rain). And my office is cold. And the classrooms are cold. And everywhere is cold. And if I'm complaining about the cold, you know it's pretty cold.

    I need to finish my work so I can go home to my nice warm house.

    1. It stayed in the low 40s here today but I don't mind too much. We needed the rain.

  2. Oh, yeah, so did we. And I wouldn't mind it being in the 40s outside if it was warmer than the low 60s in the building where I work.
