Goodbye Winter, my dear friend!

I've been meaning to write this post all month, but things have been really crazy since I ended up in the hospital, and when I came home from the hospital I wanted to document all about what had happened, so this post got pushed to the back burner.

As crazy as it sounds to most people, I absolutely hate the month of March! I hate the weather, and I'm always sad when the seasons change from winter to spring. Most people are overjoyed when March hits and the temperatures start to warm up, but I'm always sad to see winter go because I know it will be nine whole months until winter rolls around again! I love snow and I love cold weather!

Although I don't hate spring, it's definitely my least favorite season! The reason I hate the weather in March is because I don't like temperatures in the 40's and 50's. I either want cold weather or hot weather, none of this "middle of the road" business! I start enjoying the weather again around the end of April when the temperatures are warm enough so that I can sit outside in the sun. (I absolutely love sitting in the sun because it feels so good to feel the warm sun on me! Especially since I spend about six months of the year being perpetually cold!)

When March 1 rolled around a few weeks ago I was fully intending on writing my "Why I Hate March" post, but I ended up having to go to the hospital because I was sick with complications from infectious kidney stones. This resulted in a one week stay in the ICU at St. Anthony Hospital. This impromptu hospitalization didn't help March's reputation any, either!

Now winter is gone for another year. Too bad! Every winter I always excitedly wait for snow, but sadly we don't get much where I live, or not as much as I would like! We had several (about four or five) snowfalls this past winter, but none of them were that substantial. The biggest one we got was probably only 4 or 5 inches. Personally, I think it would be nice to save up all of the little snowfalls and just lump them all together in one big snowfall of 8 to 12 inches! I know that most people don't like snow, but I think it's so beautiful and I love it! (Except when I have to cancel my plans because of it!)

Here's a picture of my house after the snowfall I mentioned in my previous paragraph:
(At least it was enough snow to completely cover the grass!)

We're agreed about March being the worst month of the year. And we agree about snow. I often look on a snowfall and say, "God has given us a gift of snow!" I look on it as a gift because it is so beautiful and it causes us all to slow down...and if we're lucky, we become childlike and play in it!
