The Winter of My Discontent

Dear Winter,

Just as I started to cheer up, and feel more energetic, you decide to come back in full force. As soon as I got used to wearing sandals, and started to think that heavy jackets were a thing of the past, you dump snow on us, and up the windchill. Maybe I'm wrong in thinking this is a personal attack, but I just can't help but feel that you just don't want me to be happy. Or warm. Or maybe, you heard that Al Gore is coming to town and you want to show him that global warming has nothing on Saskatchewan weather, and can't bring you down. You are tough and stubborn, and are just trying to make a point, right?

Whatever the reason is for your triumphant return, please, just stop and think for a minute about the people you are affecting. The people who just want to have a nice visit with Summer. She only visits for a couple months a year, when you get to hang out with us the rest of the time. You are being selfish. It can't always be about you.

Take a well deserved holiday, get a good rest, and come back in the Fall. Please, I'm begging you.

Yours truly,
