Lazy Weekend Music: Blizzards, Downpours, and other Such Miseries
Posted January 23, 2016on:
Looks like Winter Storm Jonas is a nasty one, dumping 2 feet or so of fluffy white material liberally down the Eastern Seaboard from New York through North Carolina, hugging the Appalachians through to Kentucky and Northern Georgia. As for those of us down here Where America Ends, we are, have been, and will be treading water, It had rained and rained, followed by brief cold fronts of 36 hours or so, then it warms up and rains and rains and rains, add cold front and repeat. Rain is atypical at this time in SoFla – El Niño has a muy picante sense of humor.
I’m certain that those Widdershins who are covered with snow would gladly trade place with the wet Widdershins to your South, and I can somewhat see why, but ask yourself if you would enjoy three weeks worth of virtually unremitting rains interspersed with wildly fluctuating temperatures. At any rate, the weather appears to be miserable for all in a variety of torments, so we make the best of it.
I’ve found a lot of songs about Winter, and any number about rain. For the most part I’ve found them in Classic Rock, but I’m good with that. Post your tunes as well as anything else that might strike your fancy in this absolutely open thread.
Stay warm and dry, Widdershins.
