Winter: the season that won’t surrender

This picture?


That’s what’s happening outside my front door right this very minute.

I know this winter is going to end eventually, but seriously? It feels like I’m never going to see the garden again.

    Seriously? Ugh. We are expecting a “wintry mix” by morning.
    Hang in there. I’ve never known winter not to end eventually.

    You’re not the only one feeling the effects of a never ending winter…

    I know! I’m so tired of snow. I was walking around Iowa City earlier just grumbling under my breath (so if you saw me, yeah, that was me – I’m tired of walking in the snow!).

    Woke up to no snow. By 7 am, it was snowing blizzard force. Four inches later, it stopped; the plows came through and snow started melting off the cars in the parking lot. Then it started again. There’s another inch and a-half out there. It’s only 1:30 pm.

    Stop shaking the flippin’ snow globe!

    It’s Friday afternoon and I’m so very cold my fingers can hardly move. At least it’s not snowing here…but then, that would at least make the cold pretty.

    I just keep thinking, “next week is the flower show…next week is the flower show.”

    The best solution is to visit Arizona! Our temperature will be 82 degrees today, and everything is starting to bloom!

    I think it’s scheduled to arrive in May…right after the floods…
    Welcome to the Midwest!

    Carol, it will end…but barely soon enough!

    CJ, I’m coming over to check that out right now.

    Jen(aside), how could I have picked you out from the rest of the people walking around and grumbling? ;-)

    Joy, hang in there….as will I.

    Curtis, it was pretty…and pretty frustrating.

    Hotfessional, that’s craziness!

    Robin, a flower show sounds fabulous right now.

    Aiyana, 82 degrees? Ohhh…that sounds perfect!

    Katie, no doubt. We’re definitely in for some flooding with all this snowpack.
