Default It happens every year...

AAAAAAaaaargh! Cursed snow!!!!

I do not think I will ever get over this. Every year, it starts getting really warm (30°-40°F) and the snow is pretty much all gone. Robins are about and other signs of spring. Then

BAM!

Sometime in April (or May, or June!!!!) SNOW!!!

really depressing. Snowing as I type and a friend told me 10" expected tonight. I am going to sleep. Wake me up in August.

You live in Vermont. That's like, right next to the Arctic Circle isn't it? Sheesh. Come closer to the equator where the temperature is tolerable for humans.

Well, yeah, but then I would miss winter, and fall, and spring...

No fun having only one season!

nothing to complain about. Humans need to complain too, we were not really made to live in comfort.

See, these snowstorms don't bother me, because I know they'll be gone in a couple days. We'll get two feet of snow in March and it's all melted before the end of the weekend. In January, though, you know that you still have eight or ten weeks to go, that's when the storms get tough...

I was going to mention this earlier today, but work of course happened.

Can't you guys north of the border keep these Canadian Highs where they belong?

That would be CANADA.

No snow, but after 2 weeks in the upper 60's low 70's, 20's at night with 30's and 40's during the day and brutal winds....

This sucks.

Yeah, I know it won't last, but it still bums me out to see it. Hard to get out of bed in the morning when it is white and you are expecting to look out and see brown.

Well, down here in not so sunny southern Connecticut, the snow you're getting is coming down as buckets of rain. Flooded streets and loads of mud, and I think I left my bedroom window open this morning, fun for all...

High temps or high presure zones?

Our perceived cold weather is the only thing that keeps a certain texan from invading us.
