Ready for summer

Feather Wilson

Winter is the season of discontent.
Winter is dreary, depressive, dark, desolate, dead, decadent, dormant and worst of all cold.
Divorce, depression, death, drought, despair and alcoholism are more prevalent in winter than other times of the year,
Bears have it right. They hibernate in the winter. Birds have it right, they fly south in the winter.
What can we do about the winter?
Republicans should impeach winter for crimes against US and Texas citizens or compromise and state winter should only last from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31. Congress has a duty.
Winter does have its advocates. Retailors love the winter. Coat manufactures love the winter. Heater manufacturers love the winter. Santa Claus loves the winter. Deer hunters love the winter.
The rest of us just endure the winter.
Winter is so bad that global warming is a welcome respite. Global warming is actually the cause of increasingly bad winter storms according to some climatologists so even that does not work.
