It's absurd to insist that the lion act like a lamb, even if the lamb is content not to play the lion.
A steady rain with temperatures in the mid-thirties feels colder than snow in the teens. Brrrrr. On the other hand, if this keeps up, actual flakes may be falling from the sky at 4am right here at our house. And that would more than compensate me for the shivering I just did at the gas pump.
