Well, I am hoping for some kind of Doomasday anyway. It does not take much for Doomsday to come in winter here, as I sadly know too well. but this year, as I am stuck in England anyway, it might as well come: I want it to snow. A lot. Now that is what they have been announcing, what they are announcing now as I am typing this: severe wintery weather. It rained a lot last night, today it was warm in the morning, then it got colder during the day. There were dark clouds, heavy with... rain? Snow? I don't know, the winter storm they have been announcing, that I was hoping, never really materialised.
Maybe I am tempting Fate. Maybe I should not hope for severe weather and a real winter here. Yet, it would be darn ironic that now that I know I will spend Christmas here and there is no snow, while there was plenty last year. Maybe I just want to laugh at the way they deal with winter here, with all my Northerner's pride (arrogance?). Maybe I just want to live winter as it should be, to enjoy it as it should be: cold, windy, snowy. I enjoy more a season when it is seasonal. In any case, if Doomsday comes, I am prepared.
