This region does indeed have four distinct seasons.
I can deal with Spring and Autumn. Temperatures and precipitation are tolerable.
Summer is challenging. We’ve had a few weeks of temperatures hovering around 110F.
But Winter — it angers me.
We’ve endured -10F, which about what we’d endured in Soap Lake a few years ago. Fortunately, we’re not living in a 5th Wheel RV as we were then. It had its drawbacks. But it also had its benefits, like the ability to head to warmer climes.
But, presently, I’m disliking this whole “winter” thing.
No, that’s not quite right.
I don’t mind Winter, but I suppose I dislike most isn’t the cold or the precipitation — I’m disliking the current condition (existence? non-existence?) of the shelter, equipment, and gear to cope with it.
Switch off yours.
If we all, together, would’ve just dealt with the necessary issues early on, then this would’ve been only a few months’ worth of inconvenience and we’d all be back to normal.
But, nope… here we are, about two-years on… and we’ve seen… **checks numbers** 816,609 deaths from some “made-up” virus (those were sarcasm-quotes).
Worsened further by the continuing and growing obliviousness of humanity. Mostly American, to be frank, who like to scream about “Muh rights!” but, let’s be honest, it’s not only here in the USA. There seems a steadfast refusal to acknowledge reality and that’s given the virus a strong enough foothold to continually mutate.
Yep, we’re surrounded by breathing Dunning-Kruger Graphs aplenty.
Only because it’s funny:
Funny when twisted appropriately on an iPad as well:
