Indiana Weather

Less than a month ago my neighbor fired up his backyard barbecue.   My husband rode around town on his motorcycle.  Our jackets were hung in the closet and we never once thought of getting even a sweater.  

Yet it looks like cold weather and snow might stick around for a while. 

It is winter time.  Yes, we have snow and ice.  After all, this is Indiana.  If you want warmer weather day after day visit Hawaii. 

Weather is the topic at the shopping malls, restaurants, even grocery stores.  You can’t go anywhere where the weather isn’t the center of conversation.  True, I am as guilty as anyone else. 

Aren’t we Hoosiers?  We should expect it.  If you listen to some people, you’d believe it was something new.  If you have switched from “heat” to “A/C” on the same day and back again, you may live in Indiana.  

Perhaps a mild winter can spoil us.   My sister recalls “old-fashioned” winters, when the days and nights were cold, with ferocious winds day after day a week. 

The combined lack of sunshine with below average temperatures will amount to a formula for feeling under the weather.  Thus, everyone will talk about the weather.  Although some welcome any postponement of hot, humid Indiana summer, others foresee a more ominous forecast for area temperatures.  

Each person you meet on the street has an opinion about the weather and they will tell you. 

Get with the program people, this is Indiana weather!  

Indiana High School Basketball sectional time is nearing and some of the worst winter snowstorms have struck during this time period.  The snow may close schools, stop work and halt traffic.  You can bet the basketball sectionals will be played as scheduled. 

It is winter in Indiana.  Deal with it.

    A great read for a cold day with Indiana vs Ohio State on the TV.
