The Never Ending Winter



Okay winter, I give up. You win. It snowed back home on Sunday. I can't wait any longer. I'm going to make the final push to the north. Should be at my daughter's late Monday. She's letting us stay with her until we can open up the house.

We plan on camping out in the van in her driveway for a couple days. I'm buying a new electric heater on the way home. We burned out the last one on the way south. Once we made it to Florida, we really didn't need a heater. I was hoping we wouldn't need one now, but so it goes.

In a few days we should have a warming trend up north. That's not to say it's going to be warm, just warmer. It's all relative.

By the way, a friend of mine just put away his snowshoes for the season. Other friends are still hitting the ski slopes. That's not unusual as local ski areas have been known to run Mother's Day specials.

Oh yeah, even down here in Massachusetts, I'm freezing. Yep, winter wins.

  2. Warm/cold, warm/cold here in GA. Don't know when it will finally be a good time to plant.

    1. Pretty tough to figure out when the old rules don't work anymore.

  3. Sunday was the coldest recorded in history this late in the season. I wish we could have some of that confounded global warming they keep blaming me for.

    1. Funny thing, it's actually been warmer over the rest of the planet. Our bad luck to have the one unusually cold spot.

    2. There's a reason they don't call it "local warming."

  4. Its Al Gore's fault :0 . You know your not a Yankee but true Northerner when you use a phrase like "Oh yeah, even down here in Massachusetts" Lol.

  5. Not necessarily warmer over the rest of the Sixbears. Just returned from Ireland, where the have had snow for the first time in many years. Yorkshire in northern UK was extremely cold, and planting was delayed due to the cold. Cooler than usual down her on the Gulf Coast, too. 45 this morning. I'm not complaining .
