We have been having the most wonderful mild winter this year. We got some snow, but not nearly as much as we usually do. And when it did snow, it melted within a day or two. I'm looking out the window now at beautiful sunshine and a bright blue sky. It's actually supposed to get close to 60 degrees tomorrow... in February... in Erie...! Awesome!!!
There are naysayers out there worrying that we're going to have to pay for this when summer comes along. They think that we will either have a cooler than normal summer, a rainy summer, or both as a payback for this mild winter.
Worry is wasted energy. We don't know what the summer will be like until it gets here. There is no sense worrying about it because there is nothing we can do about it. It's going to be what it's going to be. My favorite prayer is the Serenity Prayer.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
Well, weather is something we cannot change. There is really nothing we can do about it. So let's just enjoy these beautiful days while we have them. Live each day to the fullest. And deal with whatever comes along when it gets here.
