The White Stuff

A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water. ~ Carl Reiner

I'm speechless. I got up and looked outside my window (with the porch light on, cuz I get up early) and there was well over a foot of snow outside.

Spring has sprung with a vengeance.

Last weekend, I raked leaves out of my gardens, and oooohed and aaahhhed over all the sweet little baby plants poking their heads above ground. I figured this week or weekend I would turn my garden (carefully with a pitchfork, to avoid cutting up my earthworms who are rising to the surface as the ground thaws) and plant a few cold weather crops: swiss chard, peas, etc.

Now? Now I can't even find the garden.

Excuse me for a moment.


Have I mentioned, lately, how much I dislike living in the Northeast?

Worst part? DH will work from home in our shared office with music blasting. He can't work without it, and I can't work with it. So... zero productivity on the calendar today.

When the sun comes up, I'll take a couple pictures and post them here, just so you can thank your lucky stars you don't live here (my apologies and sincere condolences to those of you who do).

How are you?

If I saw snow I might have to run screaming. We lived in Boston before we moved to Vancouver. Sometimes the winters full of rain get to me- but then I am reminded- no one ever had to shovel rain.

Your dh needs some headphones.

As for snow, they're saying even WE could get some tonight! To channel Queen Victoria, I am not amused.

The weather here is dismal, but at least the snow isn't sticking (or accumulating). I hope your weather improves sooner than it looks like ours will.

Since we're going to be taking off on another ski trip for the kids' upcoming spring break next week, I'd love to wake up to snow.

Hugs though for not wanting it. Have you happened to take a look at the weather in the PNW. Here in WA state, it's 70.
