So, I spent yesterday digging out from yet another 6" of snow.  That makes an official total of nearly 44" in the past 4 wks (pretty much our average snowfall for a season)...and, it's mostly all still on the ground; along with whatever we had before as it's been so friggin' cold for the past 6 wks.  We set a record monthly total for February of 39" (13" above the previous record).  I've got piles at either end of my driveway that are at least 7' tall.  Had to snow-blow paths around the yard so the dogs can get out and take care of business.  And, to add insult to injury, we tied a record low for the date this morning of -13F and a record low high for the day of +2F.  It's only going to gradually get warmer this week...and, by Saturday, we might finally approach our avg for this time of year of +34F.  Of course, with that mild warming trend comes yet another shot of significant snow.   I'm just about spent dealing with this at my age.   Find myself thinking of moving to warmer climes. Hard to imagine Spring (and cruisin' season) is around the corner.  Anyone else feeling my pain?

I feel your pain sir. Of course I too live here in Minnesota. It's so bad around here that you have to creep half way into intersections before you can see if a car is approaching. Global warming my butt! I want to know where that's at so I can go there. lol

I can somewhat understand. Though I'M not in Minnesota and not cold as many days and less snow.
Here in Indy , -16 with wind chill this a.m. . With a couple of inches of snow yesterday.

But , keep in mind , I'm originally from Nashville ,TN.. So ANY amount of snow is a nuisance. And the cold is hateable! And it seems as I remember , in Nashville this time of year....we were getting the lawn mower ready when I was a kid.

Ha! That's one of the down sides to living in the deep south. I've already mowed my lawn this year. But ironically, we are 30 degrees today. Not much grows at that temp.

I hear you about the winter blues. We have double the snow fall of a typical winter and it's also been colder than normal. If we have a fast melt, it's going to be a big mess and people may have flooding issues on their property. I have been itching to get the Malibu back out and drive it, but at this rate, by the times the roads are clean and clear, it might almost be May!

It really hasn't been a bad winter here but I'm done with the cold and dirty roads and cold mornings.

Ha...love the pic of it peeking out of it's shelter.  Like a ground hog on Ground Hog Day!

And, yes...we got flocked yet again overnight with about 5" of wet, sticky snow up here in south metro.  Went out last night around 10:00 p.m. and cleaned everything off as it appeared it had all but ended.  But, nooooo...woke up this morning with more cleanup ahead.  And, the plow hasn't made it's massive deposit in front of the driveway yet, either.  I swear I'm going to have these piles at the end of my driveway until June...sigh.
