Anybody else feel like me that winter is done and over with? I know in my head that I shouldn't think that way but I think it's psychological that we had this big snow, bitter cold, etc. (even though it's usually in Jan/Feb here) - I don't think my head can handle another (pretty wimpy, huh?)

Yeah, I feel the same way. The real key is depends on whether or not that groundhog sees his shadow. I'd feel a lot better if we could just take him out this year... Does anyone know Bill Murray's (or Tonya Harding's) phone number?

Just don't whack the groundhog before he gets a chance to see his shadow. It's part of his secret protection clause--if he gets whacked before shadow-time we'll have snow until June!

Saw lots of people in shorts today. OK, what the heck I may even surrender to it myself and put on a pair of shorts. But I'm not going jogging, I'm just going to stand outside for ten minutes and then realize it's still crazy to wear shorts in January.

That's one problem I have with the weather around here, this has happened before.. It's cold and then it gets warm and feels like spring. I dig out all the spring clothes out and BOOM it's snowing again. So I'm not letting myself think this is spring because it will get colder. I'm also a big wimp when it comes to winter weather..

Absolutely right, this isn't spring--it's winter. The way Virginia winter's are supposed to be!

Anyway, it's a good thing you didn't go to Santa Barbara, EuroExpat. We've got nicer weather than they do right now.

Saw my first daffodil sprouts today. Hunndreds of them poking through, all up and down the garden. Now that's a cheerful sight.

Oh, and you know what else is a cheerful sight? The giant snow mountain that the snowplow created during the blizzard finally melted almost all the way down to the pavement. There's still about an inch of ice, but by tomorrow that will be gone too. It was once 4 feet high and I thought that thing would be there until May!

I still have a dirty brown mountain on my corner, though it is shrinking. Hopefully it'll be gone by the end of this week.

LOL, we may need to have a contest to see whose "snow mountain" lasts the longest.

I saw some too! Having seen what this house looked like before they "flipped" it and we bought it, I would've never dreamed of seeing daffodils sprouting in the flower bed. My 4 1/2 yo and I were quite excited at the sight. Our family enjoyed organizing the garage today (finally all boxes are unpacked) with a late afternoon visit to the park. It was a beautiful day!
