What the hell is going on? Even in the interior of Alaska it's not supposed to be -20F in March! I'm disgusted! I'm fed up! I went for a walk in the woods with my dog yesterday evening even though it was about -5F. I don't care! I want to be outside! Damn it!
(And that felt warm. An hour later it was -15 F as I went out to use the outhouse. An unsuccessful trip, I might add. Too cold. De sphincter say "NO! We won't go!")
Everyone up here is getting pissed off and fed up. Fairbanks is a huge, spreading glob of angry people, reaching far out into the borough. We WANT MELT! We deserve break-up! We WANT SPRING!
We see pictures of grass, trees with leaves, and flowers on the TV news broacdcasts from Outside. Meanwhile I put on a parka and bunny boots to take the dogs out! Grrrrrrrr!!!! Hey, keep those pictures to yourself! Have some consideration for us up here!
There's snow on the goddamn bird feeder! We got an inch of snow yesterday! That was added to the nearly 3 feet of snow still standing there. What the fuck?
Oh yes, you who don't live in Alaska may think that we deserve this for moving up here. "What did you expect?" you say. Well, I'm here to tell you, this isn't usual, and we are mad as hell about it! Even VERMONT is into mud season, and they get far more snow than we do.
Yes, yes, you say that Spring will happen. Right. We'll see. Right now I'm seeing Ice Age animals (moose) all around, (some circled the cabin on Sunday) and expect to see a mammoth at any moment...
