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.

The weather twits are saying this is "the last blast of winter."

I don't know if they know what they're talking about, or if they're just trying to make us feel better. :angry:

Every few years we get a spring like this. I remember one that drove me up the wall because there was a lovely 80+ degree day that caused all my beautiful lilacs to bloom along the driveway in the old house . . . and then the next day was subzero and killed all the blossoms. :angry:

Now, we're just going up and down a bit. Hope it doesn't kill the Iris we planted in the front yard this time. They won't bloom, but I don't want them to die either.

The snow is finally gone, but it's still cold.

Hope it doesn't come back.

They keep saying it's going to warm up here, too.

I'll believe it when it happens.

And right about the time we see 90 degree days, we'll all be flocking to the "I hate summer!" thread. :P

No, not really, not me anyway.

What I can't stand is the high humidity, and we get that sometimes even with lower temps.

Up until yesterday, autumn was unnaturally sunny. Good to see normal service has been resumed.

LadyKat I too do not ever wish for winter. I am no snow bunny nor do I like being cold or having to go out in it. Others can have winter and play and do things in the snow that once I might have enjoyed as a child, but these old bones hate the cold now and do not like winters chill.

I do agree that for some reason we must endure winter in order to reach Spring again and the renewal of life to the creation. But I am a spring and summer person and am never ready for winter.

Same here, although I don't mind autumn, as long as it doesn't get TOO cold.

About the time they start using the words "freezing rain," that's when I want to crawl into bed and hibernate.

Well we have been threatened with a frigid cold front coming down from Canada that will be bringing snow. I am not thrilled in the least but will survive. I just have to learn to drink hot tea without sugar or honey. This is not going to be a fun winter!

Okay winter official sucks!!! Someone gave me a bad cold for Christmas. I don't want it and it makes it hard to breath again! My nose is so sore from blowing it all day yesterday and I could not use my c-pap last night so I did not sleep well. My head feels like it needs to pop and I am living in a fog. Oh and it snowed last night! I hate snow! I just want to cuddle with my kittie and sip hot chocolate and watch movies today. I want to feel normal again! :P :cry2: :lightening: :bang:

We've been having temps in the mid to upper 40's F and rain.

Not freezing rain. Just rain.

No snow. No ice. No bad roads or slippery sidewalks.

It could stay like this the rest of the winter as far as I'm concerned.

Of course I know it WON'T!

Very little snow here to date. (I probably just jinxed things by saying that! :Q )

I just hope Mother Nature doesn't decide to make up for it by dumping three feet or so on us in April.

We have gotten so much snow in the last three days. :x

I just hope it's over and done with by the end of February.

I don't want snow in March. I definitely don't want it in April.

Not to poke an open wound, but NJ at least seems to have dodged the snow bullet. We've gotten a few waves of snow that never really amount to more than an inch in most spots, though I think we had one storm with more than that. The temperatures have generally been warm enough that it's not terrible to be out and about.

Color me happy that this winter isn't so bad and for the love of all that is good knock on wood!

Temps are going up tomorrow, and rain.

Then temps will drop drastically so said rain will probably freeze.

I hate ice as much as snow.

Not looking forward to the icy sidewalks.

Our weather has been back to more normal temps in the 40 and then yesterday early morning we got dumped on. About 4 inches of snow and it was colder then the arctic or so it felt. I HATE SNOW! Then last night after I get home it decides to snow more! But it was apparently just a flurry because it stopped after several hours of a light snow fall and here it is at 3:35 am and it is 35 degrees outside and I can hear the snow melting as it drips off the roof. I understand that later it is suppose to be freezing rain. Egads I hate winter! Give me back my Spring and warmth!

I am aware that 4 inches may not be much to most folks, but here we don't have the winter equipment to keep the roads clear and drivers tend to forget how to drive safely in snow. I for one, learned how to drive in 3 feet of snow and know to just allow more time to get to work and to slow down and take my time getting to work. But people here scare the hell out of me with their driving. I had 2 cars fly past me when I was headed home last night well over the speed limit by 10 miles an hour. So they were doing at least 70 on the freeway in snow and icy conditions.

Spring where are you?? Come quickly!!

Vana: I agree with you on the drivers bit. No matter where you are, there's always an idiot who thinks he can drive in the snow at 70 miles per hour and ends up causing enormous problems for everybody else. Somebody always does it.
