Seriously, my area of the country is normally very nice. We get:
Change of seasons
Our bugs die during the cold weather
Minimal tornado activity
Gorgeous fall foliage
Beautiful spring flowers
Ok......I'll stop bitching. It just seems like this winter will.not.end.
Seriously, why do you guys all live up there?
Garrison Keillor said Minnesota was settled because the Swedes and Norwegians were looking for a place to settle and live in that was just as miserable as their home countries.
We got at least 7 inches on Monday. Our snow blower broke after blowing out about 20 ft. of our driveway. Which is an uphill driveway. Poor MisterSister had to shovel the heavy snow and now his elbow is bothering him. More snow Thursday. Temps in the 0 degree's again, next week. Thanks for the heads up, tesla!
Yes, I want to throat punch winter, too. I always hate winter but super hate this winter. I hate it, hate it, hate it. *stomping feet*
Supposed to get to 37 degrees today. T-shirt and shorts weather. I'll take it, but I really hate the teasing, Mother Fucking Nature!

Unlike you, FP, I would take the super hot and AC over winter all. the. time. We are all so different in our likes/dislikes. It is so interesting.
Spring lasts about one week in April and it has tornados, thunderstorms, flooding and a few flowers.
Summer lasts six months and is HOT HOT HOT. But it's a "dry heat." We don't have that many bugs because hey, bugs need water right?
Fall lasts two months and is WONDERFUL. College Football, 50 degrees at night, 75 in the daytime, leaves changing (yes, we have trees they just ALL had to be planted first); it's wonderful
Winter is generally FOUR months of blah. Usually the lows in the teens to 20s and highs in the 30s to 40s; lots of wind; lots of dust storms; and God forbid if we are in a La Nina we get creamed with snow that NO ONE knows what to do with. Seriously, six inches paralyzes this place.
