Complaining About The Weather
In the midst of all this, I was reminded of a poem I first read many decades ago. It goes like this:
It ain't no use to grumble and complain; It's jest as cheap and easy to rejoice; When God sorts out the weather and sends rain, Why, rain's my choice. - James Whitcomb Riley, Rain, 1849 - 1916
To those of you still suffering through difficult condition, you have my sympathy. To those now enjoying better weather, I hope you'll rejoice. As Riley said, it's just as cheap and easy to do that.
How's the weather affected you this winter? Let us know.
