LAKE AREA – Sure, there are many folks who look forward to winter for skiing, ice fishing, building snowmen, whatever. But, let’s face it, most of us who love boating, swimming, and long, hot summer days hate winter and have certainly had enough of it by February. In fact, here’s the Beacon staff’s Top 10 list of why winter stinks: 10. Indoor recess 9. Heating’s more expensive than air conditioning. 8. Frozen nose hairs 7. Too much chapping 6. Too many calamity days 5. Making payments on a snow covered boat that’s in dry dock. 4. Car’s always covered with snow, ice, or salt. 3. Dark before and after work 2. Tough driving conditions
And, the number one reason winter stinks is: 1. It’s cold!
Here’s to hoping Punxsutawney Phil was right!
