I want Spring to arrive, but this is what I have. What do you have?

Yeap, that could almost be a picture taken from my deck. We got an inch or so Friday night, it melted, and then it snowed again. I have maybe an inch or two on the ground.

Of course, people from Montana and South Dakota and Michigan are going to think we're crazy for talking about an inch of snow.

My sister, near Philly, just got 14 inches! We only have 3. I want real snow!

I'm one of the weird ones. I love winter for the snow. It looks so beautiful outside, I just might go walking this afternoon.

I love winter snow, too. I just wish the weather would make up its mind. If it's gonna snow, then by golly snow me in! I'd like that, but only if hubby was home. If we are only going to get teased with spatterings of snow, then go ahead on with Spring, pretty please???

I will keep this short so as not to offend anyone. I live in southern Arizona where it is sunny and warm. My heart goes out to you in the colder parts of the world.

I hear ya, Carole. I'm dying for a heavy storm. They said we'd get hit with this one, then it went just a little too far south to really get us. I heard, though, that we might be getting round two tonight. I hope it's a heavy one!

Carole, we have snow here too on the east coast. The stupid weather guys kept saying it was going to arrive yesterday but it never did. Panicked Rhode Islanders were out there hoarding milk and bread at the stores. I shopped early yesterday morning to get my food in time, when I would have had all day to get it.

The snow arrived overnight while we were sleeping. My Sunday paper is out there buried in snow.

I WANT SPRING, TOO!!!

That's alright. There are few things better than the first day of spring here when you first notice the trees budding out and the dogwoods blooming. Then in fall the tree are beauiful with their fall foliage. Every place has its good points and its bad points.

I live on the NY/CT border and it is snowing like crazy.

Ok, now...see? The skies are laughing at me. The sun is shining brightly now...and it's still snowing!

It started snowing here around 3:30pm yesterday, and I believe....wait...yeah, I think it finally just now stopped (10:10 am). I'm guessing six inches, even though I haven't been outside yet this morning. Gorgeous, fluffy white stuff all over the trees and cars.

I have those tall, skinny pine trees right outside of my second-story window. The weight of the snow has tipped one of those trees sideways, and it is now resting on my ledge. It looks like a land bridge of some sort. :tongue

And let me tell you, I'd still be in bed snoozing away if my cat hadn't been freaked out by the snow outside her window. What a wimp....

I haven't looked yet. I think I'll wait for tomorrow. The light leaking in isn't very bright so I doubt it's sunny.

Yeah, I'm gonna wait til tomorrow.

I've got the giggles from looking out my window. A pair of morons trudged by, braving the elements, armed with ski-poles no less. Now a morning constitutional is resepctable and not letting the weather get you down, well now, that's the American Way, isn't it? So, bravo goofballs! Hope we don't have to send a team of huskies to rescue your dumb as$es in this half-inch of melting slush...

Honestly.

Carole, we got about four inches overnight, and it's snowing again now. Hubby said that when he left the jail in Holden last night that there was at least six inches on the ground. Thank goodness he doesn't have to go out tonight.

Having lived in southern Arizona and where there's real winter, I'll take four seasons.

My friend Dolly and I had a deal when I lived in Arizona. The first time a grey, rainy day was forecast--not passing showers but a day when it stayed overcast all day--without even checking with each other, we were going to call in sick and spend the day getting the most out of the break from the daily sunshine. I remember we planned two meals and some imbibing at restaurants and bars that featured a lot of glass. The only exception was if it fell on a Monday, the real busy day at work. (See how conscientious we were?)

We never got to do it, in four years.

That doesn't mean I won't be visiting Wendy in, say, early March, when spring is still a month or more distant and I'll have had it with winter. And she's invited here for August!

Maryn, hospitable

Oh, my. Now doesn't that just look like home? Thanks, Linley :)

By the way. I am going to be back home for a short visit in April. We should do coffee!!

We have 20 inches so far in Central Park and more expected. We actually might break the record.


The amount of snow would be fine, if the wind wasn't so fierce! The dog loves it, though.

As for me, I'll gladly take the 115 degree summer days here in Phoenix if it means no snow in the winter.

Although I do wish we'd get some rain. We're in the worst drought in decades. A little rain might wash some of the gunk out of the air.

Well, here in Oakland, it's topping 70 today, which is nuts. But I slept in and now I have to get some work done, so I won't be out there. Honestly, I'd rather have rain or snow out my window today than gorgeous weather. And, as an east-coaster, I really do miss those big snow storms. I'm totally jealous of you folks who have snow.

Heck yeah! Let me know via email or something the date you'll be here and we'll set it up. I'll even cook for you if you like, if you're going to your mom's! *grin*

I miss the sun...I miss tropical foliage that isn't forced to survive (barely) indoors

That tree seems so natural in my pic, but really, it was planted there just about six months ago. It does give my view a very CA look, but I'm still getting used to it.

But, as you say, I'm in a place where a palm can survive unwatered and left alone outdoors.

What's happening outside my window? People's toes are rotting off. Whole flocks of ducks are ice-shackled to their duck ponds. Bunnies are doing it like the world is going down in flames!

Why are there ducks in Buffalo in February? Shouldn't they be somewhere a tad warmer?

A) I live in some countrified suburbs on the outskirts of Buffalo. B) Those ducks have been there since a December cold snap!

What a foul end for those stupid, stupid fowl!

Here's some late arvo summer sunshine for you (taken a few minutes ago) and the view from my desk, looking towards the hills of Fraser Island:

It's rainy today, but give it a minute. We might have a small bit of snow or perhaps sunny (as we have had both this week). I'm in Ohio. There is currently no snow on the ground.

Close to 70 degrees today. Just loverly. A few daffodils were blooming when I took the dog for a walk.

I can't wait for spring! :D

Although I'm in the middle of the city, my building backs up to this nice thick wooded park. I see the trees and blue sky. But it is windy. so the tops of the trees are swaying back and forth like 'Lovecraftian fingers' reaching for the sky.

(I could also have said they are swaying approximately 30 degrees to either side of the center line of the window in my office....big gust..maybe 40 degrees. . .)

I thought that since the last time this thread was looked at was February and we were all cold and ice-bound (well, a lot of us, anyway) that I would give you a burst of mountain spring and show you what my back yard looks like now, without all the snow:

It's been sun or rain here. The flowers are in bloom. The catmint too. Which might explain that outside MY window is an orange stray cat (terrorizing my cats).

I too live where it is sunny and warm.

Right now, itís dark out and it was in the 80s until the afternoon storms came. The only photos I can find are on my photobucket.com albums and I would say the weather was about the same on these I took on the Kennedy Space Centers camp ground where I launched my boat.

This is a scene with the Air Force launch pads on the Cape.

This is where I was about to launch my boat.
