Please God, Let The Snow Melt, Already!

The girls have been out of school since last Wednesday! Snow day turned into snow days - and insane boredom has set in.

I went to work, finally, for a few hours on Friday. Only to be faced with a three day weekend after an already unexpected three days off. It was cold and the snow refused to melt until Monday showed a glimmer of warmth. (That is to say three hours of 34 degrees.)

Tuesday finally came with it's promise of back to school and work....

And we woke up to MORE SNOW!

It is insane. We never have this amount of persistant cold and snow. If only the torrential downpours would return with their liquidity and predicability.

We almost made it to four entire days without any type of precipitation. Almost. If we would have made it, those four days, it would have been the first four day period since October that we have had no precipitation of any kind.

Doesn't that seem a bit excessive?

I normally enjoy the gray and drizzly winters. But I am ready for a bit of sun and temperatures above 40 degrees.

Hmmm, we're not about to witness a version of the Shining are we?

Geez, that's a loooooooooong time for snow days. I don't think we've had off for a stretch like that since some blizzard ten years ago in the dirty Jerz.

But the comment about not going more than four days without some precipitation, I will remember it for the day when I think to myself, well self, why don't you try living in Seattle.

Yeah, that would be what you call the down side. When it snows down here, it's almost always gone by the next day or the day after that.

i hear ya! the only good thing about the snow for me is that my landlord leaves the front gate open so i don't have to get out of my car twice every time i want to go somewhere.

oh, and christine-self... you get used to the rain. the west coast is soooo beautiful and totally worth the drizzly winters.

It is supposed to snow/rain/sleet here tomorrow. During rush hour.

That is going to be one FUN commute.

I do not envy you, my friend.

By the way, thanks for the Dave Barry tip. I shall purchase the book to read to Nooze as soon as we are finished with the Little House series!

Holy girly, send all that water and snow down here to Australia - we're in a HUGE drought you know. My town has just on 10% of water capacity in its dam and we're now restricted on even the length of showers and how many loads of washing we do a week. (3 days a row in the same undies to save water? No way Jose!).

So... um. Send us some snow, and we'll send you some sunshine. It's a deal :)
