To whom should I complain?

Trust me, I'm a doctor.

Since September it's been mild, overcast, occasionally wet and occasionally windy. It's boring. The seasons have merged into one grey blandness. We didn't have an autumn and now we're not having a winter.

Damn it, I want frost and I want snow. I want seasons.

Wombat Towers is uncomfortably stuffy - despite the cannon ball holes in the west wing. Of course, the flywheels and furnaces are running but that's for a very necessary project (the items Hobbes procured from the village won't stay fresh indefinitely) and we'll need the power should another pitchfork-and-torch-wielding mob try to force one of the drawbridges and portcullises again.

So, where do I submit my complaint form? It's just not good enough.

There actually isn't much snow here. The ground is covered, but only about an inch.

I have yet to wear my winter coat. So far a hoodie has done the job.

It's really boring, it genuinely has been grey and mild for bloody months.

I'd settle for a hoar frost.

I cannot say it has been gray as most of the fall and the winter so far was and has been fairly green and warm. We had some beautiful snow yesterday that melted already but was quite fun and enjoyable for a few hours. I love the silence and peace that comes with the snow fall.

Sorry you are having a gray season, at least you are not blue, well maybe you are.

Cheer up, spring is just two months away!

But that's the problem - it's almost spring and I want some winter. Decent, cold, snowy/frosty/chilly weather! I like spring but I want my winter first!!!

We got  that one storm in Oct, it's so bad that even the kids want more snow, even if they re the ones that will do most of the shoveling

Didn't we speak already about this spelling issue?
In any case, I hear your cry of anguish, and will see what I can do.

griffin rummages through a large beat up wooden box with 'wedder' written on the front in crayon. The box holds paper sachets which contain powder. They look sort of like soup packets.
He ruffles through a line of them. They are all labelled 'boring'.
"No, no, no, no. Shit I saw it here yesterday."
He plucks out a sachet which has a skull and crossbones on the front, and a slight tear in the corner, which leaks a light drizzle of powder. The powder emits a faint hum as it falls, which if you listen carefully, is actually made up of weeping and mourning. griffin folds over the leaky corner and fixes it with a few inches of red electrician's tape, and puts it back into the box.
griffin peers at another labelled 'wet Sunday' and throws it back into the box. He pulls out a fist full of sachets and goes through them one at a time, casually tossing the rejects back into the box.
"Mild weekend" *flip*
"Overcast all weak, rainy all weakend" *toss*
"A few flakes, but no snow that sticks" *chuck*
"Drizzle, then fogge, then more drizzle" *toss*
"Windy with light rain" *flip*
griffin pauses, and strikes a pose. He strokes his chin in apparent contemplation, and if you didn't know better you'd imagine he was actually thinking. Something resembling a thought must somehow have found it's way into his skull, as he suddenly returns to the box with renewed vigour.
He sweeps aside several sachets painted black and marked "oh hell noes" aside. He lifts one labelled "globel warming" up to the light for inspection.
"Empty. Hmm, not sure of that's good or bad. Oh well."
He crumples the empty packet into a ball, and throws it to the wastebasket and misses by a mile. He returns to the box, and from the back right corner pulls out one with no label, merely a half inch of multi-coloured tinsel taped to the front.
"Yes, yes" he mutters. "This will do nicely."
griffin tears it open along the 'open other end' notice and holding the packet high in the air, he shakes it vigourously. Powder sprays everywhere, then disappears in a shimmery sparkly cloud of shimmery sparkly things, and a sound that goes 'bonk'.
Satisfied, griffin closes the lid on the box and wanders off to find more porn.

without some good winter the mosquitoes will be unstoppable this year.

but not really cold, gray and wet is typically how kentucky does winters

Isn't that status quo for England?

How rude! You're going on the 'the list.' (Regardless of whether you're right or not!)

It's the same with germs - a good cold spell kills off a lot of the nasties but this winter isn't killing off anything at all. Except my patience!

Thanks awfully old bean. If we don't have six feet of snow this time next week then my lawyers will be in touch.
