winter is overMy frosty heart is saddened, for today is the final full day of Winter. I knew this day would come, as it always does. To everything there is a season, and all that. And today, we bid farewell to one of the most misunderstood and wrongly reviled Seasons of the Big Four. Tomorrow the impending Spring Equinox shall plunge its smiley, happy dagger into the hearty chest of Winter, once again unseating him as the Seasonal Ruler, until Summer rears its ugly head once again.

So, to celebrate the passing of Winter, I boldly raise my goblet full of the fermented urine of the Kraphlar Beast (what you hu-mons refer to as “Mountain Dew”) and toast thee, oh bringer of the cold and natural death. Without you, no one can truly appreciate life. I shall spend the rest of the day proudly cranking the proper soundtrack to Winter: Horde’s Hellig Usvart. Cheers.
