Fireplace on. Bourbon in my hand and wearing my sweats. Not bad. Why can't you just be happy for us in the snow?

I would be depressed in the never ending warmth.

Who needs a snowblower when you got a T-Rex?

About to come down in Denver. Can't wait. At least the 5th time it's snowed here this year and I still get excited.

I'm happy you're happy with your snow. I'm also happy I don't have to deal with snow.

OMG. We just had an hour of sleet and freezing rain and it's horrible out there. Thankfully it is supposed to actually get warmer between now (4 pm) and 6 pm and it should melt. Thank goodness.

My husband turned around to me when it started sleeting and said, "Honey, do we have enough bread and milk and toilet paper for the next three hours? Because you know, we might get stuck at home."

It did NOT melt and we had another round of sleet. Icicles everywhere! It's supposed to be mostly sunny and in the low fifties today - one can only hope. Yesterday was worse than I thought it would be. But this week looks like it should be fine - only one day of rain possibilities and only one night below freezing and not in the same 24 hour period thank goodness.

Speaking of changes of seasons, in spite of the wide range of temps in February and March (it's hard to say whether it will be warm and balmy or sleeting from one day to the next) I do love the capricious ways of spring! We had a fire going last night but by Wednesday I should be able to dig around in the yard in a T shirt. I just hope the sleet didn't hurt any buds that have been trying to sneak out around my yard.

Nope. I am the same way. I am sorry I actually like the holiday season and they are best served cold

We have SO much snow but its melting. Its 41 and sunny and feels sooooo warm. Spring is almost here in a few days. March is pretty unstable but still much milder. Early spring here means melting snow, not budding trees, but I am fine with that. Its maple syrup season!

One thing I was pondering was that when you grow up WITHOUT seasons, your memories feel more blurry. For example I have a really good memory. I was just remembering the after school park I played with my cousin in when I was in first grade. I remember a day he got mad at me because I threw sand in his face. I know I was in first grade in the 2000-2001 school year but because Florida has no seasons I have no clue what month or time of year this was... just that it was before the summer. (We moved to a new house and school summer 2001) Its not THAT big a deal but I feel if you grow up with distinct seasons your memories will be more vivid and easier to pinpoint. The only thing that helps me with that when it comes to childhood memories is birthdays, holidays, summer vacations and special events. The seasons are like nature's time stamps.

I never thought I would see 41 and warm in the same sentence....
