Talk about Karma smacking me in the ass. My last post I made the mistake of saying it had been unseasonably warm and thus I was not yet into the holiday spirit.
It’s here and I’m not ready. There is a big pile of leaves in my backyard that were supposed to be raked the day this storm hit. I should actually be thankful for that, now I don’t have to nag the teen until spring.
Of course, now I have to nag him to shovel.
I’m not ready for winter, I still have pumpkins on the front steps and I haven’t gotten the winter clothes out of storage. I can’t find the mittens, hats or gloves.
I am ready to slow down a bit and just chill, quite literally because my windows are pretty drafty and I haven’t covered all the windows in 3M plastic yet.
As snowfalls go, this was not the monster storm that the media made it out to be. We did get about 8 inches but the ground was warm so it turned to slush, the driving was not that difficult. However, I was not one of the 100,000 people to lose power so what do I know?
It’s here, more snow is falling as I write this, and more is expected throughout the week. I don’t think I will see my lawn again for at least five months. I’m not ready to write my annual bitch about the cold post but my guess is it’s going to come sooner than it usually does. I’m getting too old for snow and cold, I don’t like it anymore. I want to have year round fall or spring, or I need to move to San Diego, or just suck it up.
Ugh! I am so NOT ready for the winter or snow AT ALL. Thankfully, it’s only been raining over here. Hopefully, it stays that way.
It’s not that bad, it just means a different ‘outfit’.
It has been snowing here for about a week straight now. I have had enough of winter and it isn’t even technically winter yet!
Preaching to the choir, sister.
You can keep it. I don’t like snow. No self respecting goat does.
It builds character!
I still haven’t gotten the leaves up, and it hasn’t snowed. Yet. I despise the winter and the cold temperatures, and I can’t wait until retirement and a warm climate.
I can’t wait for retirement either but I don’t think I will be moving to a warm climate anytime soon. As much as I hate the cold and snow, at least after Christmas, I don’t like earthquakes, hurricanes or tropical humidity all year long. But, I am pretty sure I could be a snow bird.
Oh you big sissy. Earthquakes ain’t nothin’!
No winter weather here yet, but rain today – and leaves. I’ve been blowing leaves off and on since early last month. We had our first city leaf collection last week.
I’m not a big fan of winter, but I do like a good snow or two, then spring!
All the leaves haven’t finished falling yet, which is really strange. Getting snow at this time of year is not weird and pretty much right on schedule. It is still a bit of a shock when you go from 70 degrees to nearly a foot of snow overnight.
Yeah, but the snow covers all your sofas and stuff that you put out on the lawn, right? It’s a good thing!
Ha ha! Those are in the garage, still….
What is it with you people and your snow? Do you all live in Canada or something?
No, but I can see it from my backyard!
Sssshhhhh! Don’t say the “S” word!! It hasn’t happened here…yet.
It will darling Nicky, it’s coming, make no mistake. And it will be here for months and months. Good thing you have all that cheese and that fabulous calender to keep track of the days, http://www.zazzle.com/we_work_for_cheese_calendar-158242662801472045.
Your product placement is making me buy plastic I don’t need, Miss 3M!
Really? That’s never worked before. Woohoo!!!
It’s still warm here in the east. Oops. Now I’ve done it. Just jinxed the warm streak. Tomorrow it will probably drop thirty degrees.
I hate the cold and yet it seems to like me, returning every six months to visit but then it never leaves.
The good news is that my leaves are history, jack. I’ve been OCD about raking so that’s been tied up in a neat little bow for the last week and the trucks just came and sucked them all up.
The bad news is that I absolutely hate winter and have since I was a small child. And since I’m east of you this junk is on its way to Motown.
So this means that you and I need to start saving our pennies so we can be neighbors in the same retirement community somewhere in the South. We won’t actually hang out together, but we’ll IM each other from our respective apartments.
There’ll be someone to gossip about in that community. Better yet! We’ll be the ones blogging about the real side of old age while those hens in the club house talk about how wonderful life is as a senior.
I heard about your plight in the news, wondered about you. I still like the cold (I’m a hardy Upstate NYer) and I like the snow. But I HATE HATE HATE the high heating bills!
See what happens when you complain? Because, obviously, your thoughts control the weather. Can you fix global warming while you’re at it?
You seem to go from heat to snow in no time. I’m not sure I could cope with the sudden change in seasons. We still have autumn weather here. It’s cold and rainy at the moment but still plenty of sunshine in between.
That photo makes me feel cold.
I feel you, sister. 😉 I live in the Northeast, but I’m not ready for winter. We keep delaying putting on our studded snow tires, but soon that might come back to bite us in the butt. I’ve lived here all my life, but I like to complain about the weather anyway. It’s what we who live in the cold climes do. 🙂
Funny… We rejoice at snow because we never get it…. But I will take summer over winter ANY day!
I love winter, and that picture is beautiful. I’m sorry you don’t like it, though. San Diego is very nice, and people can–and often do–wear swimsuits there pretty much year-round.
Too cold for this California weather weenie.
Beautiful images of winter season…something that comes few and far between for us Texans…
I was beginning to think my mom was lying when she said she used to have to walk to school in 10 feet of snow all year long when she grew up in Minnesota. I need to move north – It’s been a few years since we’ve had a holiday with cold weather and I just can’t get in the mood when it’s 65-80 outside.
Great blog! Have bookmarked and will visit again soon for more information.
Looks like the holiday season hits back=)
Great post I must say.. Simple but yet interesting and engaging.. Keep up the good work!
I have given up on winter and have decided to cancel it this year.
