System Shock – D110

5 Oct

Dear Master and Controller of the Weather,

Could you please keep your sick, sadistic jokes to a minimum?  I just about died this morning and it is completely your fault.

First of all, it is cruel and unfair to take a beautiful start to fall and rain down cold, sticky, white crap all over the delicate, gold dusted leaves.  In a single day you obliterated the picturesque autumn landscape and took with it my joy and anticipation for this soul rejuvenating season.

Thirty degrees? Seriously?!? In one day???

Secondly, my system needs a least a few weeks to adjust to any significant or prolonged drop in temperature.  As I mentioned previously, I just about died this morning while trying to complete my morning run in this frigid weather.  May I suggest two or three degrees per day instead of the thirty degree plummet you thrust upon the unsuspecting residents of the greater Denver area?  While we are a hearty bunch, accustom to foul weather and treacherous driving conditions, we are also easily damaged by the early onset of cold temperatures.  The neighbors have not even turned their sprinklers off yet, they were watering their snow-covered lawn this morning!

Finally, and I feel it is necessary to point this out, Winter needs to wait its turn.  You are supposed to be in control here, please do not let Winter bully you into releasing it earlier then absolutely necessary.  Fall has been extremely patient and only got started a few days ago.  It is incredibly rude for Winter to force itself upon the area and, quite honestly, it shows a real lack of character that you would allow this.  I know that it can be difficult to stand up to a bully, but seriously, if you can not handle Winter then maybe you are not qualified for your current position.  Just saying…

Thank you for your consideration and immediate attention to this matter.

    Haha great post! I know how you feel, the master and controller of the weather is dragging winter out for us rather than letting spring have its turn.
