I'm sorry. It's over between us.


(Pictures taken at noon, today, Wednesday, March 5, from my front door, during a snowstorm)

Dear Winter,

Although it hurts me to do this, I have to tell you that it's over between us. This relationship has gone on for too long now and I just don't feel the same way about you that I used to. Don't be sad, we had fun. Remember how it started off so romantically in December -- the long walks in the snow, the snowball fights, the ice skating, the tobogganing, the nights by the fireplace? I will always treasure the memories, but the love is gone, and I can't get it back.

It's stale now -- always the same thing over and over again: blizzard, shovelling, blizzard, shovelling. It's March, for Christ's sake, and we're still stuck in the same old pattern: blizzard, shovelling, blizzard, shovelling. I can't take it any more. Neither of us is happy. I want to start seeing other people. Like Spring, and Summer.

It's not you, it's me. I hope we can still be friends.

Alison

  3. Alissa - yep, those are my Christmas lights. They went up near the end of November and they're not coming down until the snow's gone and I can climb up a ladder in temperatures above zero. The way things are going, that should be mid-July.

  5. I thought winters around here sucked. I would totally hate to have that much snow all the time. Even though we don't have all the ice and snow, I'm done with winter too.

  11. You had to do it, Alison. He's really been coming on too strong, crowding you, trying to keep you housebound, freezing out your friends and family. Be careful, though. He may not take it well. I've heard a rumour he's planning some sort of revenge for Saturday.
