I am so done with WINTER!!!!

This has been the strangest winter I have encountered in many many years (yes I am old and I remember lots of past winters).  I have lived in places of great snow and enjoyed getting through those winters.  Now I live in a place where it rarely snows, and if it does it is never more than a dusting.  This winter however has been different!  We had our first snow early in the winter, and yes it was just a dusting.  Our second snow came on January 29/30 and it was "7" inches!  That snow was followed by a day of freezing rain, so then we had an inch of ice on top of the snow.  It closed all the schools (for 3 days) and almost everything else for a couple of days since the roads were a hazard.  The street that leads to my driveway was finally plowed on February 4th, that is 5 days later.  Okay, so we had our 'big' storm, now on to spring, I thought.  Not so fast, we got another storm last night, it was not as bad as the one two weeks ago, but it was snow.  It varied from 2 to 7 inches depending on where you are located.  I am so done with winter.

Looking out my front door this morning.  

Looking out my back door this morning. 

I heard on the news earlier that there is snow on the ground in 49 of the 50 states (you are lucky if you live in Hawaii) for the first time ever.  What's up with that?

So how is your weather, are you snowed in? 


  1. oh, I hear ya! I'm so done, too!

  2. I love snow, just won't ever live in it. Visit, yes.

    I have something for you at my blog.

  3. Our snow is slowly melting - which is good or we would have major flooding. I'm ready for spring too :)

  4. Hi Keli, we got teased last weekend with gorgeous weather but this weekend, it's going to be cold and wet again. Total boo. At least I took pictures when it was sunny!

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. You are a sweet one. Stay that way, okay!
