Snow and more snow

The last two weeks have proved that winter is definitely here and with a bit of an attitude. Last week we had a mini blizzard with about zero visibility for one entire day leaving high snow drifts. Yesterday it snowed all day and blew the snow everywhere again into snow drifts.

Now this sucks for small dogs like Freddie who are very close to the ground to start with and it makes it no fun for the owner (me) that has to go out and shovel a path to the yard so the poor dog can do his business. Wasn’t much fun yesterday in 5 degrees with a –12 degree wind chill.

I wonder if I can teach Freddie to use stilts?

Wishing for Snow…Yeah, I’m Crazy…

I have come to the conclusion that I hate cold weather. Just absolutely hate it…

Well, at least what we have here in Kansas at least. The weather in Kansas can’t make up it’s mind what it wants to do and is just all over the place. Now if it would just snow instead of attempting to snow I think it would be better.

Right now it is grey, cloudy and plain miserable looking outside. Do we have any snow to show for it? Nope, and I  bet it will, as Hubby puts it, “spit snow” at us today or tonight and we won’t have the pretty snowfall that others get.

Here is our weather forecast for the week:

“Snow Showers?” Yeah, that means spitting snow not snowing.  If it looked like this then I wouldn’t mind the cold:

At least with the snow you can make snowmen, have snowball fights, something fun anyway and it looks great.

Instead, we have this:

Isn’t that a pretty back yard? No? I don’t think so either. How about this one?

003

Naw, out front doesn’t look too whoopee either. Not enough snow to have fun but enough to just make it cold and miserable,  not pretty and fun. Snowy weather kind of walks a thin line between good and yucky around here and right now it is yucky.

Now before you get all “yeah, you should see what it is like back here” mode on me let me just state that I have been all over this country in winter when Hubby was a long haul truck driver and I have been in Wisconsin and Michigan in the dead of winter. The snow was up to the middle of the semi-truck’s door and it wasn’t that fun getting out and getting into the truck terminals or service stations but the roads get cleared quickly and they know how to deal with snow. Here? Most folks don’t and drive like there isn’t snow when we get wet, drab days like today and the roads can be slicker than usual. Plus if it is going to be wintery then I want the pretty along with it.

I know, I sound like a petulant child but darn it all, that’s how I feel and I’m sticking to it!

Delaney’s World Chuckle for the Day #130

Seasons Greetings!

Seasons Greetings!

I am now officially ready for the wet/cold weather to give us a break for a day or two. I still have Christmas shopping to finish up and I don’t want to wait until the weekend but I don’t want to go out in this either. I don’t mind the snow, I don’t like the sleet/ice type of weather that we always seem to get for a few days after it snows.

Speaking of snow, what is up with snow in Las Vegas?? Potato Chef, if you are out there and stop by, speak up and let me know the scoop!

Let It Snow!

We have had a couple of snow days while here in Colorado, not a ton, but enough to know it snowed. Winter is definitely here even though the temperatures around here are up and down like a yo-yo.

I decided to dedicate today’s post to all things snow. Like it or not, if you live in an area that gets snow, it’s coming. If you live where it doesn’t snow then this will give you something to appreciate about the beauty of snow and the pain in the kesster it can be.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Snow can be breath taking in the literal sense and in it’s beauty

Animals can have either fun in the snow or it can be a real pain

Kids can get out of school for snow days…yippee!

It can be difficult to get to work….or maybe not at all

Or you can just have some fun in the snow

Love it or hate, wintertime is here! Happy Holidays!
