Winters in NC tend to be short and mild, and this year was no exception. We got a few cold spells and some snow, but overall, it’s been pretty nice. It’s certainly a lot better than where I grew up in Cincinnati, OH, where they’ve been stuck in some polar vortex for the past month with a snowstorm every week. That’s bad enough, but what I always hated about winters in the Midwest was the clouds. It seemed like from November to April, the skies were an unrelenting, dismal gray.
In NC, our winters tend to be sunny, and we usually get a break from the cold every few weeks with temperatures in the 50s (that’s in the 10s for those who use Celsius). It makes winters far more tolerable and not so depressing.
All that said, I’m looking forward to leaves on the trees.
