Today is cold here in Texas. In fact for the Gulf Coast area, one could conceivably say that it's bitterly cold. February is usually our winter with more bleak, overcast days than usual.
American writer Shirley Jackson described this month perfectly when she said, "February, when the days of winter seem endless and no amount of wistful recollecting can bring back any air of summer."
The cold winds and gray days of February make me long for the torrid Texas summer.
