Beethoven, Bolero, Beer
Normally our winter starts with a bang in late Nov, then continues through Dec and Jan. Normally Feb is fading toward spring. This winter we got only a little snow in the usual period, then Feb overcompensated.
I'd been thinking of a musical analogy. Normally we get Beethoven, this year we got Bolero.
Some anonymous genius hit a vastly superior metaphor.
Can't top it!
