Hoag: I want spring

Madison Hoag

With this back-and-forth weather — nice one day, snowing the next — it can be draining.

Waking up at 7 a.m. just to find your windshield frosted over makes you want to crawl back in bed.

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I want it to be spring. I’m tired of this endless winter.

I want warmer weather, brighter skies and colorful nature. We’re done with 18 degree days with sleet off and on.

High winds make it feel like the Arctic. You have to bundle up, then just to shed it off in your weirdly hot English class.

Not only is the weather horrible, but you have a limited amount of daylight to do things. This makes it feel like 9 p.m. comes at 6:30 p.m.

When you wake up for school, it’s dark.

When you get home after tryouts, it’s dark.

It’s also usually cloudy so it’s never really bright.

The first day of spring is March 20, which can’t come soon enough.

With spring break moved up a week this year, it could be a gamble if it’ll even be nice enough to enjoy our days off.
