I'm not going to lie. This winter has been tough on me. Getting used to the harshness of Midwestern winters has been an adjustment. Juneau boasts a beautiful temperate climate. It stays between 30-60 year-round. It's just a nice, predictable climate. I was completely used to it.
Before living in Juneau I had spent four years living in/going to school in Southern Illinois. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Southern Illinois, just know the climate is NOTHING like typical Illinois. Snow is a rarity. The first year I lived down there I never wore anything heavier than a hooded sweatshirt in the winter. It's dominated by warm weather.
Moving back to my roots has been rough on me because of the climate. It's been 6+ years since I lived somewhere with harsh winters. Believe me, this one has been one for the record books.
Long strings of cold. No sign of the grass since early December. I am ready for the thaw. Ready for spring. I don't know about you guys, but this winter stuff has got my praying for the warmth.
Your turn...What has your weather been like?
