Elderly Ladies and the Farmers Almanac

(c) Misty DawnS

A few days ago, a student came into our office to meet with my office partner. We got to talking about the weather... more specifically winter. My office partner said she doesn't mind the snow, she just doesn't like to be cold. The student replied that the cold doesn't really bother him either, only when the wind is blowing (which is pretty constant out here). My reply was simply, "I don't like it, and I hate driving in it."

That's when the student decided to tell us there is another blizzard coming. What??? "Yes," he replied "I guess it's in the Farmer's Almanac." Really??? "Yes, and all the old ladies at church are talking about it, and you KNOW that if all the elderly ladies at church are sayin' it's gonna happen, then it's GONNA happen!" We all then laughed. The student headed to class, and we went about our work.

I certainly hope the Farmer's Almanac and the elderly ladies are wrong this time! I've had enough of winter!

Shoveling snow... it's the new quick weight loss diet

Well I don't know about the almanac, but I have been looking at the weather models and it looks as if a large storm is going to be hanging out in the center of the country for a while in a few days/week.

I'm with you... my fun in the snow is over and I am ready for spring!

So have I Misty, so have i!!!
But unfortunately, we are about to get another 6 inches tonight. Bitter cold also.
Hopefully this will be over soon!
Love this photograph, even though it does look pretty cold there too!

Oh please please be wrong, elderly ladies and farmers. I NEED spring to come. The one day's taste we had last week was so fleeting....

Well, I dunno, old church ladies have been around for a long time, and have seen many winters, so maybe they're speaking from experience.
I hope for your sake they're wrong, however. LOL
