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.

I have heard about the deep freeze hitting the midwest and how the lake snow effects are hitting my sweet friend in Michigan. Keep warm all of you.

I myself am not dreading winter this year. I do not have to go to work in it and other then going to spend time with my mom or driving up to get my oxygen tanks replaced, Ryan will drive me. :D I have never felt any joy in Winter but hope to find some this year so that I can be thankful for all seasons in some way. The weather here is definitely dreary and damp but not terrible and I discern little if any breeze. Though we have had our fair share of winds already this last month.

I am going to go get myself a large cup of Hot Chocolate with mini
marshmallows and a good book. Love you all!!

Vana, I agree..winter would be just fine if I didn't have to go outside twice a day to feed animals..but alas, this is what I've chosen, this life, so put on my big girl pants and cowgirl up!

Meanwhile, tonight, I swept out some hay from the water trough, then put my hand on the metal cow sanctions in the barn and promptly became stuck to the the sanction..lol...I'm ripping my glove off the metal, feeling rather foolish..burrrrrr

Witchy, it's awful.. the cold.. isn't it? I hate it even more than the snow, but about the same as ice. Ice is dangerous. I'm already tired of winter. Too much too soon.

I know I'm going to regret it big-time, but I must admit I was a little disappointed that it didn't snow yesterday, despite the weather forecasts saying it would. It just doesn't feel like November to me until there's a little bit of frost at least.

I hate hate ice, way worse than snow..I have "gators" that I put on the bottom of my boots and pretty much wear them all winter, because with my two left feet, I have gone down too many times to count.

Thor..I think snow is always pretty, I really like it when it's coming down, especially when I don't have to work and can just enjoy the scenery...but alas, often I'm working and snow/ice means very busy work day..ugh.

Hear Hear! Couldn't agree more!

I'm no fan of ice either. I've gone down several times myself, once even managing to break my arm.

My right arm of course, I'm right handed. :roll:

Rose, Witchwench I agree. Winter wouldn't be too terribly bad if it weren't for the blasted cold. Can't stand the cold. That Arctic wind blowing ughhhhh! "shivers & shakes"

LK , I've fallen and busted my right wrist a few years ago and I'm right handed ! Was on light duty for almost 2 moths. Have a plate, 3 screws, & 5 pins now !!!!

I'm with you guys....I actually like winter but not yet. I do a lot of work outside and I'm trying to get some inspections done at work and waited till this week (50 degrees and sunny) to do a few. Really bummed there has been snow already. But, living in the north country is a choice and as Witchy says....gotta put my big gal pants on. :) We are travelling for the holidays and hopefully will beat the Sunday snow driving home. May just drive home Saturday night.....we can drive in snow just fine...but it's the others. :shock:

stay safe Wench! and have a great Holiday. Do you still have chickens? I have a small flock of 15 or so that live here


Our "blizzard" was a whimp..only lasted a few hours and only dumped about 6 inches of snow..it was a baby, barely made it into the blizzard category ..I'm not complaining, esp since not working today and just get to nestle inside..but alas..to whimpy, I have to go out and run some errands afterall. :D

I think Wenchie's chickens need these sweaters....

Today the temps will probably not even go above freezing. :P
Well, as long as the wind is not too bad, a dog walk should still be enjoyable.

Our winter finally hit on Sunday with a snow storm and cold front pushing down from the north. Temps are now in the teens and the snow has continued to fall of the last few days.

But the sun just came out and it looks so pretty outside. Too cold for me to go out but I can appreciate the sight! My husband tells me that the streets are terrible.

Weather's been gloomy and murky up here for the most part: glimpses of sunlight, followed by interminable swathes of snow, blustery wind, and even the occasional sprinkling of hail.

It's Blizzard time..and thankfully, I'm just sitting by my messing dining room table, with a cup of coffee, looking out the window at a wall of white while I type this...I overfed the horses last night, so I didn't have to go marching out there first thing this morning..but alas, I'll have to put my big girl boots on here soon and head on out!

Currently warm and dry, but surrounded by snow.

Little kitty on the back porch is cozy as all get-out, though, in her fleece lined basket with overhead heat lamp and food deliveries twice a day. She might as well be at a spa!

Had quite a bit of snow here a few days ago. It all seems to have disappeared now, except for the piles the snow plows made.

But they say we can expect more in the next day or so. :x

Does NOT make me happy! >-O

Well we have just been having superb weather (for MN)..been in the upper 20's, overcast but no snow..a bit of fog. Next sunday supposed to be sunny and 37 :shock:

Last time this happened, we ended up with a once in a lifetime blizzard from hell....I hope we don't have a repeat of that one..had such high winds and so much snow, it was almost a blizzard hurricane it was ridiculous. We all knew it was coming so just before the winds started to pick up, I way overfed the horses their hay, made sure they had plenty of water didn't see them for another 15 hours...when I came into the barn, horses were just fine, along with several wild rabbits that decided the barn was good, a skunk and a flock of sparrow..looked like Noahs Ark..lol
