Last week’s poll asked whether you used cash or plastic more often and, not surprisingly, most people responded that they use plastic more often with some people even agreeing that it’s a bit ridiculous that in 2011 businesses are still mandating cash. The only really interesting comments came from Kassie who said that she’s going back to using cash more often because it helps her budget better.
This week’s poll comes courtesy of Old Man Winter, an individual who I can honestly say I’ve seen more than my fair share of this winter. While I grew up through some tough winters with frequent snow piled over my head, this year has been the worst I have ever remembered. I’m tired of the cold, the snow, the long and dreary days, and especially the fact that it is so frequent. With the lows all this week reach into the negative teens and the highs in the single digits above 0, I have to admit that I am more than ready for this weather to go away–forever.
But some people seem to feel that winter, even ones like this one, are one of the best parts of living here in Minnesota (“Oh I love the changing of the seasons!”). To those who think that way I want to hear from you. What about this weather makes you love it so much? Why do you put up with this year after year after year and why do you complain when the winters are unseasonably warm with little snow? How about those of you that are in the same camp as me and are already tired of this year’s weather long before the groundhog has shown his furry little face to the cameras? Whatever you have to say about the snow and cold this year go and and vote on the sidebar and then comment on below as I’d love to hear what you have to say.
