Laughing through the changes and accepting what life has for me after retirement. My elevator might be going down, but I plan to get off on every floor, even if it's just for plumbing supplies.
Your snowy pictures make me nostalgic.
I feel the same way about sun and warmth.
It looks pretty though. X
If it was January or February, Jules, I would appreciate it’s beauty. At the end of March, a foot and a half of snow is not what I want to see.
It looks lovely to my snow deprived self - but I hope that Spring pushes winter out the door for you. Soon.
EC, I am hoping that a week from now I will see flowers in bloom. I have seen enough of this cold, white stuff this year.
Been a long, long winter!
You can add another ‘long’ to that. They are calling for another snow shower on Sunday.
I've had eough of it too....I gues it is an age thing.
Snow is for kids, not for us who might fall down and can’t get up.
You must be getting your 4th nor'easter this year - I am so sorry - that is a lot of snow! sandie
Yep, and I think it is the 4th in four weeks. It has to be the last (I hope).
You folks have had a wild winter. And that just gets old by this time of the year. I hope it melts fast. (That's always what I hope for when we get a late snowstorm.) Be careful with all that shovelling. Take lots of breaks.
In a few weeks this will all seem like a distance memory, Jenny. That’s the plan and I intend to start my gardens even if I have to push some snow out of the way.
I have put in a work order for sunshine in your area. When I gardened for this city, they always responded to my work orders. Retired 9 years ago but things can't have changed much. You may expect pleasant weather soon or, by golly, I'll follow up with a complaint and speak to the union.
Thank you so much Geo. Now I am sure that sunny, warm days are in my future.
We had two or three days of snow in south-east England. Panic ensued as always! It's fairly rare in London - about every two years. Although, as I get older, I like it less and less, I do prefer a sunny cold day to cloud and rain. CLICK HERE for Bazza’s mostly harmless Blog ‘To Discover Ice’
Our weather has not been bad this year. We have had May temperatures in January and February and a few small snow showers intermixed. They all melted the next day. However, March has been horrid with Nor Easters hitting us week after week. Yesterday was a doozy. We are hoping for a kinder April.
I retired 27 years ago i am now running on a reconditioned body. A sort of new spring in my steps some repaired rust but could do with a paint job.. some snow on top But all with a functioning noddle.
I realized I was old, Vest, when I began to spend more time with specialized doctors than my own GP. My still functioning noodle might have some sauce on it, but it still serves me well. Thanks for stopping by.
I know I've been in the minority on this one, but I love winter and the snow, but I live in a town that gets little of it. (lol) I adore your pictures though, and hope warmth comes your way soon. Hugs...RO
I know that I enjoyed snow when I was young, Ro. Add years, add accidents, add your kids accidents, add the 24 hr news of doom and gloom and you too, would not appreciate snow. One of the pluses of not having a job is that you no longer have to drive in foul weather. However new fallen snow is a beautiful thing to see - in the movies.
March is rough, but this year you northerner's have really had a bad time of it with all that snow and cold. I hope for a warmer and more colorful April for you!
In January and February we had days of only wearing sweaters and also being able to eat outside. March came in like an angry lion and I hope when it leaves, it takes its nastiness with it. April will be kinder, I hope.o
Oooh, I had to put my hands over my ears not to hear your choice words lol...but I admit they'd be coming out of my mouth too if we get more snow!! :) We're due for a storm by next week...too much snow now. My body hates shoveling too. I kind of just want to wait it out now and see how much melts so we don't have to shovel it! :)
Yes, Rain, I said all those things and more. Yesterday, we had over a foot of snow; today, most of it has melted. I see green grass popping out. I am happier now.
My old body's gone off snow as well. Keep warm xxx
Oh, Molly, my fireplace has been on for days and that seldom happens this time of year. March, has been the cruelest month. However, I planted some seeds indoors in starter kits and I am hoping for some sprouts of green in April.
I have a love/hate relationship with snow and winter weather. Fun as a kid and with my kids. Driving in it is now terrifying for me. I nearly died in a car accident when I was sixteen. Snow and ice was the cause. Hard to imagine I still enjoy a pretty downfall. Maybe just when its pretty.be safe and don't try to do more than you can. :)Jane xxxx
I have had the same experiences in the snow as you, Blondie, and am so glad that I no longer have to drive over a mountain in the snow to get to work. The snow we got the other day is almost gone now. Hopefully, it will be the last we see until next winter.
All I can say is Mother Nature must have a wicked sense of humor to tease y'all with spring-like temperatures to start out the year and then dump on you with a vengeance in March. FOUR big storms! That's unbelievable. But this, too, will pass... Soon, I hope! I don't envy you all of that shoveling.
This morning we got a snow shower that lasted about an hour and melted in about the same amount of time. I am hoping that was winter’s last cough and that April will be kinder to us up north.
Oh my goodness........so much SNOW! I know you are tired of it and so needing spring. Hang in there....it WILL ARRIVE!
I have planted seeds indoors which give me hope for better weather days ahead.
The grand-children are hoping for more snow, but me no thanks.Your photo's do look great though.Roll on better Spring-like weather.All the best Jan
Kids always want snow days especially if it means a day offfrom school.Thank you for the compliment. A family member helped with photoshopping the falling snow and Picassa gave me the tools to enhance the others. Photography is so much fun.
It does look beautiful though - I haven't seen snow for many years - over 40.
It is lovely when it first lays, but it’s not as pretty two days later.
Dear Penny, two questions: how much snowfall did you end up with and how do you get the snow to fall on those first two pictures?????Peace.
We got about a foot of heavy snow, which was better than they predicted. My granddaughter photo shopped the snow falling in the pictures for me. I played around with shading on the others. Take care, Dee.
Dear Arleen, I apologize for addressing my comment to "Penny." I follow another blog by Penny O'Neill and I must have just finished visiting hers when I came to yours. The mind didn't catch up with my hands when I typed!!!!! Peace.
I hope it's melted by now. I am just sick and tired of winter. A foot of snow sounds like a foot too far! I like your new header!
It mostly melted in a day. Only some big piles remain. The buds are on the trees and all we need are some warm days and sun. Warmer days are here, but the sun has been shy. We are two weeks behind a normal year.
Awwww-thank you so much, yes, I think Miss Bindie is so pretty too! I have fallen head over heels in love with her and her and Tammie are sure helping my sorrow fade away over losing our sweet and faithful Gypsy. I will never stop missing her but opening our home to a new pack member is healing and bringing so many smiles. Hopefully spring is arriving to your area by this weekend and I hope you've had a good week.
Spring arrived and we rejoiced. However, it snowed again today and they are predicting another storm from the west next weekend. I hope you had a lovely Easter.
We had another spring snow storm last night. It looks lovely, but warmer weather would certainly be welcome.Blessings~
We had a backwards winter with warm days in January and colder days in March and, so far, April.
Another snow? Your photos are great, esp. that first one with falling snow.
We had a short snow storm yesterday and more coming from the west this weekend. This has been a very strange year. So far no real damage has occurred here, except, of course, our minds
Seven inches here yesterday. Another relapse followed into "Cabin Fever."....
Cabin Fever it is. If it is not snowing, it is raining. They are predicting more snow this weekend and I am praying that they are wrong.
Just peeking in to admire the lovely pictures of snow, and hope you are doing well. Hugs...RO
The sun is shinning and the flowers are beginning to bloom. Better days are ahead, Ro.
After living without snow for so long here in California, I really enjoyed it for the first 10 years or so up here. But now, I'm with you and I really feel for all the people who have had to deal with so much of it this winter.
I am hoping that I don’t have to see anymore snow for at least nine months. I hope you are doing well, Inger and enjoying your new ride.
Yep. It is the same horizon here.. or it was so on Sunday. However we have a warm 7-day forecast, says Alexa. Fingers crossed!
I hope Alexa was right for you. I listen to anyone who will give me good news.
How are you doing that way? Hope you have some warm spring weather headed your way soon! Did you get to go to the dog movie and if so...was it good?
We had some lovely days, but now we are having strong thunder storms. My Daisy gets very frightened so she slept in my room last night.
We are often asked by Friends and Family how we can live in the harshness of a Desert... my answer is simply, "We don't have to shovel Sunshine..."
Good one, Dawn.
Enough is enough. We had an appointment yesterday early afternoon at Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN.8 inches of snow didn't make the drive any easier...
Oh my, I hope the wretched, never ending winter is gone soon. May you have some sunny days in the near future.
I remember days like that. I'm very thankful they're only faded memories now and no longer a reality. I moved from Maine to Florida long ago (I traded blizzards for hurricanes), but I do feel your pain. Winters can be brutal, unpredictable and way too long. Hang in there! Spring is on its way.
Spring came and I am hoping it is here for the long run. The spring flowers are in bloom and the trees are magnificent (like they should have been three weeks ago). I am enjoying it so much and maybe appreciate it even more.
Glad the flowers are starting to pop up for your viewing pleasure, and that you're enjoying them. I'm still loving the pics of the snow(lol) Hugs...RO
