Hyperbole

I saw a headline yesterday which read “Wild Winter Weather: Is There Any End in Sight?”

Yes. Yes there is an end in sight.  It’s called Spring, and it begins March 21. Every year.  At least they used sight instead of site. Thanks to the Internet, that one is becoming almost as bad as your/you’re.

I know Atlanta got snow and looked like a scene from the Walking Dead. I know Chicago suffered a long spell of serious cold. I also know that I haven’t had to shovel my flat roof yet, the house doesn’t have ice dams, and I haven’t had to hire a Bobcat to remove the snowbanks in my yard. I’ve done all of those things in recent winters.  So far it’s just another February here.
