Hibernation sounds good right now

December 30, 2013 - Linda Lobeck
I wish I was like a bear or other animal that goes into hibernation, especially during the frigid cold weather we are having right now. With below-zero temperatures and wind chill warnings, hibernation or an extended nap sounds pretty good.

Wouldn't it be nice to sleep through the cold weather and awaken just in time to enjoy spring? I think these animals have the right idea. They certainly don’t have to deal with cars not starting in the cold temperatures, having to bundle up to go outside, or get depression during the winter due to a lack of sunshine.

No, they get much need rest and avoid all the negative things associated with the extreme cold in winter. And wouldn't it be nice to wake up and discover winter was over and spring was in the in the air?

This is why I also envy the ‘snowbirds’ who have retired and head to warmer weather in the winter. Like the hibernating bear, they don’t return usually until the snow has gone and spring is in the air.

Since I’m not an animal that hibernates or close to retirement age, I’ll guess I have to deal with the weather and quit whining about the cold. Or I can just plug in my heated blanket (best Christmas present ever) and dream I’m on a beach lying in the sun.
