Oh Wendy. I'm in California. I can't feel your pain. Except that in October, two of my (California) daughters moved to the Midwest, so they endured this cold, cold winter as their first taste of living-with-snow. It was pretty hard on them and, as a mother, my heart broke for them.

One daughter works for a film company, so they did a one-minute documentary on her experience. Enjoy!

You know, having all you Canadian forum friends has really changed my perception of Canada. I think it must stem from my teenage years--when Canada was seen as a refuge from the Draft and the Vietnam War--but I used to perceive Canada as this sunshiny paradise. Now, hearing about the winters you endure, I've come to realize that you are a very strong people. Your winters are TOUGH!!! I always liked Canada, but now I think I've come to appreciate it more appropriately.

You Rock!

Wendy, I sooo agree!! I just hate the teasing weather. It was so warm yesterday some of the snow melted and I can see grass. Today it says it will go as low as -8c and possibility of rain and snow. Ugh! For now I'll enjoy the warm weather, lol.

I have felt that way for some time now. I say put the d**m snowman under a heat lamp.

I am with you. We aren't that far from you in upstate NY and have a summer cottage in Dwight on Lake of Bays. I spent three hours this morning digging my car out from the storm yesterday. We have a plow contract for the driveway but the sidewalk and cars are ours. It was getting where I didn't have anywhere else to put the snow. Spring cannot come soon enough.

Ha, ha. She soon changed her tune Toni, bless her.

We've been lucky in the UK so far, at least where I live anyway. Lots and lots of rain and wind and some parts of the UK have been battered, but no snow here.

I was overjoyed last night when I seen flowers starting to peek through the soil. Today was the first time since October that we had gotten to have our Thursday Park Day for the children. It was awesome to be outside.

I am right there with you! Spring might actually show up at some point - or we will jump right into Summer!

She sure did. It's pretty funny, isn't it?

Of course, I'm sitting here saying that from California where we've just had the driest winter in recorded history!

I can't wait for the snow to go away. I'm in West Michigan, a couple of miles from Lake Michigan. I currently have at least 2 feet of snow across my lawn and I can barely find my front steps. This is not including the areas where the snow was piled to clear the driveway. Those piles are still like 4 foot high. I seem the remember that there was something under all that it that was green, but it was so long ago I'm not sure. We have sun right now, but not much is melting. Tomorrow night is supposed to be 6 degrees not including wind chill, but the next day is supposed to be 50 during the day. The way it is going, I won't find out what is under the snow till July!

We are having a lovely day.....sunny, and not mild.... But tomorrow it there will be what the forecasters like to call a "wintry mix".. Yuck, we are SO ready for spring... It's bern a long, cold, snowy winter... And it is time for winter to GO.

Hey Wendy - I bet you are sick of the snow!! I spent the first 20 years of my life in Rhode Island so know what that feels like. Last month we had a snow "event" as the TV weathermen referred to it and these photos were a result of said "event" in my yard. They closed all the surrounding school districts that day and some for the following day. I know, hard to believe. I do have to say that it was freezing temps for a few days and no one here knows how to drive on anything other than dry pavement.
