I qualify this because I know picky ol’ me and I find technicalities all the time. (I’m surprised I spelled that right on the first try.) So, my technicality today is going to be about the seasons.
Let’s see, where do I start? Winter (my favorite). Winter is December, January, and February. Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!!! Wrong! Winter is December 21st-ish to March 20-ish. So, in all actuality, officially, there are more days of winter in March than there are in December. But…but…but…yeah, it’s true. So, winter really could be looked at as Jan-Mar while fall would be Oct-Dec. Well, winter in Utah is more like Oct-Apr/May. And it snows in the mountain even long. (Yes, Casey, I’m absolutely certain you’re going to post something about how Colorado’s winters are way worse than Utah’s or something along those lines. We all know. Well, now you might not. You’ll probably just stick your tongue out me.)
So, I think it’s funny when people tell me, “It’s March 4th, it shouldn’t be cold!” (March 4th was chosen since it’s my friend Kirsten’s birthday.) Well, it’s supposed to be cold. The calendar people said so. “It’s September 5th, it’s too hot!” (chosen for my grandmother’s birthday.) Well, guess what, September 5th is still a part of summer. Summer ends on September 21st-ish. So, the next time I hear that it’s December 14th (my mom’s birthday) and that it’s a Winter Wonderland….I’m going to say, “wait a week. Winter’s not officially here yet.
Of course, anyone that’s gone to Utah State knows when winter is. Before ‘winter break’ there really isn’t much snow on the ground (NORMALLY!!!!). After winter break you go back to school and you ask yourself, “Hey! Where’d the road go?”
