Winter Sucks!

Post by Mcarlo77 on Tue Mar 19, 2013 2:33 pm

Just had another few inches of snow...followed by an Arctic cold front with windchills below zero. We've got snow up the arse and still no real signs of a significant warmup for the foreseeable future. We aren't going to get rid of the snow piles for weeks at this rate! I, for one, have just about reached my tolerance limit with winter. Thinking about moving to the desert and forming a G3 commune. Who's with me?!! Laughing

At least you guys have had a little taste of Spring here and there...haven't you? I don't think we've seen 40 degrees but once or twice the past 6 wks. Hell, it's been all it could do to get above freezing for a few days. I'm about to go smack the neighbor's snowman right in the face!

Yeah, march 10th was 69 degrees. We've been getting warn up's (40's) just to get really cold again. Plus the city i live in is right on the lake erie shoreline, we usually miss the brunt of the snow which usually starts getting bad 2 or 3 miles further south.

It was in the 40's & even hit 50 here last week & it was a welcome break.

Won't be long now though. Usually by the 2nd week of April we see mid 50's sometimes even low 60's. Man I can't wait.

Here's a little summer for everyone that needs it.

And, if any of you guys in AZ or TX start talking about how bad your sunburns are, I'm going to send a dump truck full of snow down your way and fill your driveways! LOL

Still want to go over and kick the neighbor kid's snowman right in the snowballs!

I don't know how you guys put up w/ that either. A couple years ago my car thermometer hit 105 in a really freak week long heat wave up here...I was very happy there is this thing called air conditioning. But it's not really the heat, it's the humidity Wink ... Why can't it just be 80-85 with a cool breeze all the time? I can't imagine what 119 feels like, nor do I want to know.Laughing

My brother lives in Houston, he says this is the Time of the year everyone likes. Because even if you live there its to hot and humid in the summer to do anything outside.

I know I am tired of it. Went out to the garage last night and lit my woodstove so I could install the gas tank and fuel pump last night. Went in the house to have dinner and still froze my a$$ off. Could only stay out there for 2 hours. I am ready for spring.
