I hate winter, but I wouldn't mind it half as much if it weren't so long, and so dark. The entire month of November has no redeeming value whatsoever...the pretty foliage is gone and you're stuck with sleet, freezing rain, and other slop. It's a dark, miserable month. The subsequent snow and cold would be OK if they didn't drag on into April.

I like winter. Consider: no ticks, and hiking on frozen ground is mud free; when the sleet and ice comes, out come the snowshoes; the crampons really work; deeper snow and the snowshoes or the nordic skiis are in their element, as am I.

We have lots of trails around us, and the landscape is beautiful. Besides, once the leaves come down, we see folks houses.

Too cold, wet or whatever? That's why people have fireplaces.

What's not to like?

Well, I would gladly exchange my weather for yours. LOL!! The high here yesterday was 88 degrees. I was in shorts and sleeveless shirt. Something just isn't right about that in Feb. We can't wait to move north again.

We've lived north and south - Dallas and Wash DC, as well as Minneapolis, Boston and here. I'm convinced every place has three or four bad months, where you don't go outside much. Here it's December, January and February. Add March for Mpls. Dallas? June to September. DC, June to August.

Of course southerners don't seem to understand that we have central heating, garages and heated car seats up here.

We need the snow anyway, will help with the drought conditions when it melts.

I like that the cold weather tends to kills nasty stuff off. I always put my pillows outside to kill the dust mites inside them. It slows or stops weeds from growing. It stops mold from taking over too.

But it really could end right after Christmas and would be better. Too many long dark months of nothingness. Most of winter is a waste of time when we could be out doing things. Instead, our schools get called off, our medical appointments get postponed, we can't get out to the grocery store, and our cars turn to rust. (yes, I am sick of it.)

So did anyone get that projected 18-24" out of last night's snowfall? Here in southern NH, we got a fresh coating of 3-4 inches. I like to think of it as Mother Nature's way of keeping things pretty & white

We got about a foot. That's a foot+ x 3 in the past week. Do the math.

We only ended up with about an inch, I think. Looks like there is no snow on the horizon for the coming week.
