Rain, Dear? At Christmas????

Posted on

We’re starting to get seasonal weather…as in very cold. But on Christmas that wasn’t the case. It was anything but “wintery”. We had rain and broke a record for being the warmest Christmas ever. What snow there was had pretty well disappeared.

Much as I hate winter, I think Christmas is when snow and cold weather is appropriate (as long as it melts and warms up the next day).

However this year Santa didn’t need reindeer, he needed rain wear.

Breaking my silence

I haven’t been blogging much lately and I blame the weather.

We’ve had snow and freezing rain almost every day since November. It’s been brutally cold since November. There have been about 5 sunny days since November. Okay these might be slight exaggerations but they’re not too far off. People who actually like winter are fed up!

If this keeps up I’m going to throw myself under a snowplow and end things once and for all!

I can’t believe it’s that time of year again, the time has gone by so fast.  I’m still waiting for the leaves to fall!  There just never seemed to be enough time to do anything so a lot of New Year’s resolutions are in order!

Bad weather and under it…

Posted on

I’m just getting over a cold and it’s all because of the crazy weather we’ve been having.  One minute it’s mild and raining, the next it’s bitter cold and snow.  I just can’t seem to get warm these days.  With everything I wear you’d think I’d be nice and toasty, but no I’m always freezing.   And all that clothing weighs me down, holding my dog up on his walks.

Bye bye birdy…for now

Posted on

About a week ago I saw my first robin of the year.  That usually cheers me up because it means the onset of spring.  However on this particular day it was snowing heavily and the little fellow was shivering under a tree.  So I picked him up, put him on a southbound plane and told him to wait a bit.

Too much…

Posted on

This has been the worst winter I have ever experienced.  It’s been unbelievably cold with strong winds making it worse.  We’ve had more freezing rain than I can remember.  And snow…don’t get me started!  It seems to snow almost every day.  At the moment we are being hit with one of the biggest storms yet.  The snow is so deep you can’t even walk your dog…

Embracing the Enemy

Posted on

I’ve been trying really hard to like winter…and failing miserably in my attempts. I try not to complain about the cold or length of time to put on outdoor clothing or the safety risks of icy sidewalks and roads or the expense of winterizing everything…but every day I find a reason to sound off about one or all of the above…
I have to admit though that the scenery can be beautiful…if it’s on a post card you receive while sitting on the beach in the Caribbean.
