Let me introduce myself. I'm apparently the last person in the Northeast to know a monster is returning, beginning tomorrow. The "Return of the Polar Vortex". I had no idea. Not that it would make any difference. It's coming again regardless of an invitation from moi. And quite honestly...haven't we had cold weather like this before? It's not usual...but it isn't all that UN-usual...is it? I don't remember it having a scary name like POLAR VORTEX before. I just always called it "unfreakin'believably COLD"!
Weekends just aren't made for the Weather Channel as far as I'm concerned. Weekends are made for ignorance and bliss, and warmth of family, friends and...coffee. Actually, everyday is made for that in my book. I can only get away with it on the weekends.
It's also made for finally taking down the last of the Christmas decorations. I accomplished this right before the "White Trash Deadline" of leaving my stuff up too long and annoying the neighbors. Well, almost. There IS this one...
I COULD tell ya that I left it up because snow doesn't magically end when Christmas is done.
Truth is...I forgot to look UP. Completely missed it. Just like the weather reports. So out it stays til the spring thaw, post Polar Vortex the sequel. I'm kinda done with traipsing up and down the stairs to the basement. I'm just going to call it a happy decorating accident.
Just like I'm gonna call this alleged Polar Vortex "Hey! It's winter in the Northeast moron...waddaya expect?!?!". But I AM glad I finally got let in on the secret...at least I ran out and got some more coffee. Weekends are made for that too!
Here's where I'm linking up today ..."The Party's On"
Please join me on Sundays for Song-ography.
