Sick of winter

October 15, 2009 - Karin Elton
What is going on as far as a) all these sicknesses and b) the stupid weather?

It’s too early for mass quantities of people to be sick. Everyone is either sick or has a kid who is sick.

I’m already sick of winter.

I used to be boiling mad if I saw a flake fall from the sky at the end of October. I feel that winter has its place — November through March is more than enough time for wind chills, windshield scraping and frozen fingers. But Oct. 9?

It seems like last winter lasted forever with a brief pause for summer and now it's winter again. I know it's supposed to be almost 60 degrees this weekend. I want a little more of that kind of weather.

That guy, Al Nino, better show up as promised this winter. I want those mild winters we had a few years back. One or two blizzards in November and the rest was relatively pleasant. Come back to Minnesota, Al!
