Can't wait for spring! We had a LOT of snow earlier in the season & now it's just plain cold!!

Temps in the minus numbers & when it finally gets above zero the wind chill drives it right down again. -43 wind chill the other day.

I would much rather have snow than the ice we had yesterday. You can keep those deep freeze temps up there. Most of the ice was gone by noon in our neighborhood. I did enjoy the free day off... Now let's get this school year over with.

Holy cow, it like snowed in Ireland for 2 days in a row, and we didnt know what to do... like the slippy roads were a pain in the ***..... the Arabs would do better in the snow then the Irish..... We are spoilt with a moderate climate, and I would hate to see a 3rd day of snow, it would be a national emergency.....

Well, needless to say I didnt crash my car and I didnt fall on my ***.. but falling on your *** when snow and ice are around seems to be our new national passtime....

And a good pastime it is. Now you know how we in Wisconsin, USA have to live for 3 or months a year or longer. Global warming - you gotta love it. Although today it's warm, 52F right now. Makes a good change from below zero temps that we had a week ago with wind chills down to minus 48. They even closed schools for two days so the kiddies didn't have to wait outside for the school bus when the diesel school buses wouldn't even start due to the cold.

CAN'T WAIT FOR SPRING!!!
