While the rest of the country has been experiencing crazy, unusual weather, so has eastern Oklahoma. Only, ours is a good kind of unusual. I was hoping for mild weather for my last winter as a mail carrier and my hopes have been realized. (so far) We've had two snows without significant accumulations so there's been no slipping and sliding on the way to work; just bone chilling cold, and even that has been relieved every few days with 60 degree temperatures.
I wonder how the winters will be, post retirement. I think I might sit on the porch swing and watch it snow, all bundled up against the cold and sipping hot chocolate, with the luxury of going inside whenever the mood strikes me. And summers; just think, I can work in the garden in the morning and spend the heat of the day in air conditioned comfort. What a life that's going to be!
