Winter in Lander is not harsh, but it is long. By now the sun is up eleven hours a day, the days alternate between warm (40 degrees) and cold (10 degrees), and the city has decided they have enough budget left for the year to plow the roads promptly when it snows. But we could all use a change.
This morning Jacinta hopefully commented that “It’s almost summer!”
“No,” I replied, “It’s February. You can’t say it’s almost summer when it’s February.”
“But it will be March on Friday!” she countered.
“But today is TUESDAY!” I objected, “Aren’t you getting a bit hopeful?”
“Yes,” she admitted, laughing.
But you know? I am, too.
