Fall Bitter Friday Giftures

  Early next week, somehow we will officially start fall, which means that all fires will stop, all hurricanes will cease, and all disease will go away and pumpkin spice everything will come back. That is so crazy since it seems like all these weird things have been happening all year. It's weird how it … Continue reading Fall Bitter Friday Giftures

The Inversion Bitter Friday Giftures

  There is this weird epidemic of weather here in Utah that I'm not sure exists anywhere else.  Since we live in these valleys that are surrounded by mountain ranges, when it's cold and doesn't snow for a while, we get this thing called The Inversion.  It's one of those made-up weather words like the … Continue reading The Inversion Bitter Friday Giftures

Weather or Not Bitter Friday Giftures

  For some reason, Al Roker seems to be getting more attention this year. Yeah, his glasses are weird colors and he is extremely short compared to his co-workers, but that doesn't seem to be it. It's because he is a meteorologist on the Today show and well, the weather has been a little wackadoodle … Continue reading Weather or Not Bitter Friday Giftures

February – A Bitter Person’s Dream

Bitter Review of the Summer

Contrary to popular belief the summer didn't end when the kids went back to school.  Nor did it end when the weather started being rainy, cloudy and coldy.  Or when all the over budgeted, under storied movies started leaving the multiplexes.  Summer's bitter reign of terror ended when the clock struck midnight and her slipper … Continue reading Bitter Review of the Summer

The Bitter Cold

I don't mean to brag, but I'm pretty sure I have been outside in a temperature that was colder than you. I know that sounds really lame to some people who live in Arizona or California or Saudi Arabia. Why would you even care? And why would that ever be something to brag about? Well, … Continue reading The Bitter Cold

Bitter Picture of the Week – Darkness

The Dark Cloud of Doom or as we call it in Seattle not August, starts for most people around October and could last until late March/early April (except for the aforementioned Seattleites). This Doom Cloud is made worse as the days creep closer to December 21st or so, which is the beginning of winter/winter equinox which … Continue reading Bitter Picture of the Week – Darkness
