Time To Revamp The Calendar

I’m not real sure how to go about starting a world-wide movement to revamp the whole seasons calendar, but I think it’s time.

Since Mother Nature went and hit menopause, things have just not fallen nicely into the neat little packages they used to. You know, where Spring was Spring and Winter was Winter. And let’s not forget Fall and Summer. They did what they were supposed to.

But not anymore. Mother Nature got her prescription to be bitchy and now it’s a big ole craps shoot as to which season you’re going to get on any given day.

Take for example, this Winter. Tornadoes in January? No freezing days in weeks. Bleh!

The entire country laughed out loud when that Groundhog said 6 more weeks of winter. The country collectively said, “What Winter? Has Winter even started?”

Seriously. Twitter blew up with people from all over — Georgia, Texas, California, Minnesota, Upstate NY, and even that crazy area above us, CANADA — asking where the hell Winter is.

It’s 70 here in Georgia today. That? That is crap, man. Our low tonight is what our average high should be — 58.

Not cool, Mother Nature. Not cool.

Here’s what I want to propose.

  • Seasons should be determined by the states. Give power back to the states (hear that Congress?). Georgia’s seasons obviously need to be different from Wisconsin’s.
  • Consider moving to a 3 season calendar instead of 4 since 12 is still equally divisible by 3.
  • Think about using the wisdom that Phineas and Ferb have imparted to most of us moms out there. MAKE SWINTER A SEASON. Spring + Winter = sheer brilliance. Then we could have Sprummer (Spring/Summer) and Summerall (Summer/Fall). Three seasons right there.

So let’s say we’re in Georgia (because I am).

Here’s how the calendar should look.

Swinter = December, January, February

Sprummer = March, April, May

Summerall = June, July, August, September, October, November

Or, we could go to a two-season plan and have it look like this.

Fawintering = 3 weeks in December and January

Summer = The other 49 weeks

The second option is probably the best for Georgia.

What would revamping of the calendar look like for where you live?

 

 

SOC Sunday: My Favorite Season

This year, Fadra decided that for Stream of Consciousness Sunday she would throw out a prompt for you to use if you wanted to. Otherwise, it could continue to be a total brain dump on something you just wanted to get out of your head. Today I decided to use her prompt.

How does winter make you feel and what do you do with those feelings?

I love winter.

There, I said it. I think sometimes I’m the only one who does. I’ve never liked summer or spring. They just don’t do it for me. Give me a full year of (real) fall and winter weather and I’m a happy camper!

Besides the fact that the clothes are cuter and cover more, that there’s football and soup, the trees seem so elegant and delicate with not leaves. On the rare occasion that we get snow or snice here in Georgia, they glisten and shine in a way that makes me happy.

The crispness of the air on a day like today, where it’s around 50 and sunny with a slight breeze is absolutely perfect. Dip down into the 40′s as a high and my mood goes WAY up! Add some snow and I’m a super happy camper. Unless it means school is out for 10 days like it did last year! Then, send beer. Or fruity pebbles. Or both.

I think I have seasonal affective disorder in the summer, actually. Because I don’t leave home unless it’s ABSOLUTELY necessary. The heat gives me a migraine and I swell like mad.

So here’s to Winter, my favorite season of all!
