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!!!

After an entire month of snow and temperatures ranging from a bone-busting -30C to a toasty -14C (that would be -22F to 7F for you US folks ;) ) with wind chills that would make the planet of Hoth look tropical, that image pretty much sums it up, yep.

Must steal that picture . . .

So, where I'm at, we've had lots and LOTS of snow this winter. Will be good in the spring for the farmers, I guess. :x But March is just around the corner, and that's spring, right? Right?

It is snowing AGAIN! I can not take much more of this winter and we are already in March. I was told this will not stick nor stay around. I now have almost an inch on the ground and it is falling like crazy.

I need warm weather and sunshine!!!!

We just had snow on the weekend, then it warmed up and half of it melted. Then it got cold again. :( And now they're predicting either snow or rain this weekend... Only trouble with melting (and rain) at this time of year is that overnight it turns to ice. I'd rather have the snow!

A fellow Connecticut dweller who can sympathize with the plight of living in this perpetually wintry state! I've got snow and ice all around here still.

We've got a 25°F temperature swing (downwards) from yesterday to today. That's more of a spring (and autumn) weather thing in Maryland, though we had some substantial swings back in January too, before it decided to start snowing a little more (relatively speaking).

Yea.... same here a few miles north of you, Eldy. (I'm in Southcentral PA).

The mid-70s was nice the one day, but that only means the ticks were also out. I found one on the dog. :P

Okay so it is summer now and so many are already wishing for fall and winter! (
I just got my summer here and it is August so I am in no rush for it to go away! I hope it lasts here till at least mid September. I will be going to Canada the first weekend of September.
