The "I hate winter" thread

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Fortunately we DID NOT have a white Christmas in my area! :D :D

I'm so glad. Although I know it's coming, I'll take whatever reprieve I can get.

It snowed here last night, and rained. With lots of thunder and lightning to make it impossible to sleep.

I hate Winter.

We are caught in the middle of an Arctic Freeze here, so I'm REALLY hating winter at this point.

I would do so gladly if I could, but I don't think you want it quite THIS cold.

It was 8 below zero Fahrenheit air temp with wind chills of 20 below zero F.

When I said arctic freeze I wasn't kidding,

Well Punxsutawney Phil DID NOT see his shadow today, so supposedly that means an early spring.

Let's hope the little rodent got it right this time.

It's been really cold here, too. It snowed sunday night, so the drive monday morning was a little worrisome. The snow plows do a good job, but they don't get it all, including the snow the wind drifts across the road. Today wasn't so bad.

We had about a foot of snow here yesterday. We've had a very cold winter. We had a couple of days where it was around -23F not including the wind chill. It's not close to being over. DIE WINTER! DIE!

We have been getting snow for the last week along with very cold weather in the low teens which we don't usually get. Here on the West Coast of Washington we usually do not get much snow to speak of over the entire winter unless you are up in the mountains. Well so far we have gotten at least 15 inches in our coastal area alone. Seattle has set records from way back in like the 20s or something like that. I have been unable to get to work now due to a very bad viral issue with my lungs and the fact I can not get out of my long driveway to get to the street. It started to melt some yesterday and tonight it is raining. I am so very very ready for Spring even if it means lots of rain. I can still get out and do things in the rain.

I have never been a snow bunny and will not be starting now. I hate winter!!!
