As the Polar Vortex Swirls

22 Jan

Ugh.  I don’t know about any of you, but I’m so sick of this arctic air, aka “Polar Vortex”.  I’m telling you, Mother Nature is a cruel bitch.  Why, you may ask?  Well, let me fill you in (vent).

We’ve been blasted with subzero temperatures and wind, forcing schools to close and us to get fat and hibernate.  Mother Nature then decides to tease us with a day or two above zero.  Great!  I can get outside, inhale some fresh air without pain, take a walk without fear of frostbite or death.

The next day, smack!  We’re once again hit with arctic cold, snow and howling wind.  She’s up there in her heavenly retreat, chuckling at what idiots we are to live here.  “Let’s torture these poor souls”, she thinks to herself, “who are foolish enough to think where they live is habitable.”

In the meantime (until June), I’ll lumber around looking like a Yeti outside, then retreating inside to crock pots of casseroles and cable television.  This is the life.
