I hope everyone had a good break from the regular cantankerosity and enjoyed Heathers work. She has some good rants on things us other Coots don’t think about.
Is anyone else out there getting tired of winter? I know it has been very erratic around much of the US and still continues to be…strange weather to say the least. Next Wednesday the weather prognosticator of all prognosticators will make his debut and tell us all whether we can look forward to 6 more weeks of winter or not.
Puxatawney Phil, that groundhog of groundhogs will pop his little furry but out of his burrow and tell us what’s what. Personally, I don’t care. I want winter to be over already, I have bulbs to plant so they will bloom in the spring, and I have roses to prune.
Winter can be over for all I care. And don’t give me any crap about, “If you don’t like winter why do you live in Utah?”, I like winter, it just gets old around the end of January. These are the days here when the weather can be cold and cold or just a little cold with extensive pollution and unhealthy air.
There is a unique topography of valleys that is true here as well as in say Los Angeles, valleys trap air and therefore pollution. I am sure Ralph will weigh in on the LA gunk but here it is my turn. See cold air gets trapped in the valley with the pollution. The valley stays at around 30 degrees while it is nicer up higher. I can go up in the mountains 20-30 minutes from my house and gain 15-20 degrees just by getting out of the trapped air. Then, coming home you have to chop your way through the crap to get back into the valley.
Not ideal, but it only really happens in the winter. That is why I will be just fine if old Phil tells us Spring is around the corner.
