Default Winter doesn't want to leave yet.

Almost all the snow that had been on the ground has melted since we had a few days of above freezing temps and sunshine. Today is the last of that reprieve. We're expecting 3-5 inches of snow during the day tomorrow. Uggh.

I know many of you are still under a blanket of snow and will be for some weeks to come. I don't know how you do it.

VJ, I know you're sick of it, but I'd love to live in a place that was colder. I live in Florida, and it's already getting warm. I hate the heat.

I'm sure I'd get sick of the snow, too****

I don't generally mind the snow, though I have minded that we've gotten 16+ inches in just two weeks -- well, one week, really, with a foot of it in back-to-back storms. But I'd rather deal with that then fire ants and huge snakes and incessant humidity.

You have that right. Fire ants, snakes, alligators, sharks, and humidity that frizzes the hair and steals your soul.

I grew up in the Colorado mountains back in the 50's and early 60's! I recall winters where we had snow 60" to 100" over the winter. It also was below 0 most to the time in the morning, up to -40 below...and yes I did have to walk to school, but I was not barefoot! I had warm close and rubber clip on boots...actually it was a winter wonderland for a kid! Skating, Sledding, Skiing, building snow forts and having snowball fights! ...could not do it now!

It's all white outside again!!! They're saying up to 5 inches, but we're on the edge of the system so hopefully only an inch or two.

Another "at-home" day.

We got about a foot of snow on Wednesday and it's supposed to rain here on the weekend - it's been a real strange winter - deep freeze - snow - rain seems to be this years pattern. Many of my neighbors have spent thousands of dollars on snowmobiles and they have only been able to go out once or twice because it seems to rain after every big snow fall.

I sure will be glad for the spring to get here.

I so love Texas, even though she (Mother Nature) forgets her meds sometimes.
