Burt has been catching up on his reading during those recent winter days when the high temperature stayed firmly below zero. Although our weather hasn't been really all that bad, relatively speaking.
Of course there was always an ongoing project or two to keep everyone occupied.
Like building pinhole cameras from all those empty boxes that keep accumulating.
Then one day, when we least expected it, the dreaded Cabin Fever set in.
The overwhelming urge to laugh at the fickle gods of climate change overcame us. We put down our drinks, bundled up and went out to take full advantage of the frozen stuff. At least it was a sunny day!
Our top layer of snow was the dry, powdery variety, sadly making building a snow person or a decent fort impossible. Luckily, by using our bare hands it did melt just enough to stick together for snowballs! We were determined to have a proper snowball fight and quickly built up an arsenal.
Who won? Good question.
Probably the one who was least affected by the cold. So if your stuck inside, buried in snow,
trapped by the cold or just plain bored with winter here's some advice from Burt.
Make a few snow angels.
Try a new or old sport, you'll only hurt for a few days afterward.
Write your name in the snow.
Or if all else fails, take a road trip.
Thanks for stopping by!
How is your winter going? What's your favorite cure for Cabin Fever?
