Promises, Promises...

A week after Spring officially began (3-27).
So, last November (or thereabouts) I promised my Facebook world that I would limit my Minnesota Weather Complaints to ONE. Meaning, I would not have as a status update anything negative about the cold, the snow, the ice, the cold, the snow, the driving conditions, the absofrickinlutely horrifying state of existence that is six months of the year here.

I kept my promise. Albeit, there were probably two or three passive-aggressive complaints, but they were, for all practical purposes, merely statements of fact. And while I complained in comments on OTHER people's complainy weather posts, I didn't outright come out with a negative post myself. Instead, I kept a journal (of sorts) in the form of badly-drawn cartoons--sometimes with words--of my angst. Now that it is supposedly not winter anymore (currently, it is 40F and snowing, thank you very much, Mother Nature), I have decided to share my cartoonish complaints all in one place.

Enjoy! And remember: these are not masterpieces. I did not intend for them to be critiqued for their artistic amazingness. They are for your amusement. Or Bemusement. Or whatever. Some have dates; some do not. They are out of order because I dropped them in the process of scanning them. My bad.

Oh, and the eyeball one. I don't know what it symbolizes. It's what I was feeling. Maybe one of those 50 below 0 evenings when I was outside trying to enjoy a cigarette, and the resultant frozen eyeballs had something to do with it.
