Well, it has been a while… It’s almost March, and soon it will be spring. But not quite yet. Not here, anyway. I think winter is not going anywhere soon.
Maybe I’m being nostalgic, but it seems to me that winters used to be more predictable (for lack of a better word). I mean, you knew what to expect from December till March: it was cold (as in below freezing), and there was always snow.
Now it seems that the weather changes almost daily: first it’s snowing, then it’s getting cold, then all the snow starts thawing, then freezes over again. Which makes for very slippery footpaths, as my left knee can (painfully) attest…
But it’s not really cold, if you know what I mean. Or maybe you don’t, especially if you live somewhere warm…
What I mean is that with the temperatures seesawing between just-below-freezing and just-above-freezing, I never really know what to wear. I always feel as if I’m either going to be freezing my butt off or sweating in my big, bulky coat.
So, I got a new jacket: this one is perfect for that 0°C weather, and it keeps me dry when Mother Nature cannot decide whether she likes rain or snow (or both at the same time). And it has a hood, which is a must when you live by the sea.
And I have been wearing this jacket non-stop for months. Or what seems like months. If I have to go out, that is. Given that I’m not really a winter person, and I can work from home, there’s always the option to stay indoors and wait for the blizzard to pass.
On the other hand, Professor M keeps dragging me out for walks. He ‘needs fresh air’, or that’s what he says. Oh well, a little bit of fresh air might be good for me, too, in spite of that nasty wind from the sea…
