Okay, I've Had Just About Enough of This...

No, I'm not talking about Congress and the Supreme Court, although they're up there on the list. I'm talking about winter.

Last weekend we had six inches of snow, just as the 18 inches we had a few weeks ago had finally mostly melted away. Tonight and tomorrow we're supposed to get another 1 or 2 inches. Then this coming Friday and Saturday, we're supposed to get another storm...in the words of Rico the Meteorological Prognosticator (whose thoughts are shared with the rest of us by local blogging sensation lacochran), "...we could be in line for another big one come Friday and Saturday. It looks impressive but I don't want to jinx it by talking about it."

Okay, that's enough, already! No more snow! Send it to Amanda ... she needs it to help educate Aaron and Adrian about the various states of water, not to mention giving her an excuse to wear something other than the shorts and tank tops that are evidently standard in Indonesia and Australia. Agnes is supposed to fly back to Germany on Friday evening to visit her parents...let the snow wait until Saturday morning if it has to come at all. AARRGGHH!!

You'd think that someone who grew up in Pittsburgh would be a bit more able to handle snow. I can handle snow. I just don't want to. I want warm temperatures. I want to walk down the street and admire beautiful ladies in skimpy clothes. I want to sit on the front steps and sip my gin and tonic.

I WANT SPRING!!

And when my friend Debbie reads this and sends me another snarky e-mail reminding me that I'm a wuss who couldn't handle living in Buffalo ... well ... so be it. Debbie, I still love you, but you can have the snow.

I WANT SPRING!!

Okay, I'm done now. I have to go and check my supply of deicer, the condition of my snow shovels (yes, plural), and the windshield washer fluid levels in the cars. I need to make sure the refrigerator is stocked, the propane tank for the fireplace is full, and we have plenty of toilet paper.

Yes, I've had just about enough of this. Want snow? Send your address...I'll ship you as much as you want.

No charge.

Have a good day. Stay warm.

More thoughts tomorrow.

There is a reason half the population of the Northeast takes vacation in the southeast (read: FL) in Feb or Mar each year. It's too darn depressing! Not only the snow, but the winter blahs from lack of sunshine. Go buy yourself a sun lamp when you next stock up on deicer--you need a mood enhancer!

We haven't had nearly as much as you have but I'm still in total agreement. Bring on the Spring!!!!

Snow? It's invigorating. One of the spices of life. It makes for beautiful photos.

Okay, I can say these things because we have a snow removal service. I'm such a spoiled brat.

I wouldn't mind the snow if was just a little warmer. 70 degrees and snow. I could handle that.

I want to know that I can make it to Studio One on Friday for my lesson and stay and enjoy the practice party without it taking 2 hours for me to get home afterwards like it did in Decembeer which was dumbass on my part but I was having such a good time.
