I’ll admit, this winter’s been incredibly mild and only in recent weeks have we had any cold weather.
Right now, the temperature is a balmy six degrees above zero. The recent cold snap is kicking me into want-to-hibernate mode – I’m in a constant state of tired, despite my sleep schedule not changing at all, combined with a strong urge to stay in bed under warm covers and sleep most of the day.
No espresso shots will get my blood flowing; once the temps rise to about 20 above zero, or warmer, the sleepies will ebb off.
Animals have the right idea when it gets cold – they snooze until it warms up and the snow is melting.
Clearly, animals are smarter than us.
