Man, I am so tired of winter. I think Mother Nature hates all of us humans and is trying to kill us.
Blizzards to the east of me, drought to the west of me and I’m stuck here in the middle with ewwww. (Icky weather). Yes, we are forecast to get snow, sleet and freezing foulness raining from the sky this weekend.
