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.

If a blizzard or even a heavy snow is forecast here, people go crazy.

Before we got hit with all the snow a week or so ago, my sister and I went to the grocery store.

It was packed. People were buying everything. The lines were ridiculous.

I looked at my sister, and said: "Did they announce the end of the world, and we didn't get the memo?" :D

Glad your horses and other "livestock" were OK Witchy.

Our snow has melted and good riddance. But now we have the deluge that is typical for here. The wind and the rain are loud and not something I want to tackle right now. The sun does peek out now and then but it is gloomy though I just stay inside and watch movies and snuggle with China kitty! We are definitely green and I love that. The hummingbirds are here chirping at me if I try to go outside. LOL Temps in the mid 40s.

At least we had power when it was snowing! :rofl:

But it was kind nice, as power outages go. I finally finished the book I've been reading!

February is half over and most of what we've had here is rain, some partly sunny days, temps in the 30s-40s. We've had very little snow so far this winter; I'm just waiting for that shoe to drop...

It ain't over yet but I can always hope it is. We have cold temperatures and rain,(either drizzly, showers or downright rain). Just living life with fingers crossed right now and praying the rest of winter is without the dreaded snow !!

I've checked the long range forecast... still no sign of real snow for the rest of the month.

I think Phil was right this time. And I did see another groundhog yesterday, snuffling around outside his burrow. :D

Drove home last night and the car thermometer kept dropping for the entire drive - went from 13 to 3 in ten minutes. Brr. Had to go out again with it sitting at a very pretty ZERO this morning, but it did warm up to about 20 degrees by midday. Would still rather have the cold weather now than in mid-March like last year.
