Default Darn snowstorm!

I'm so depressed. It started snowing Sunday night, just a little bit. And today it's STILL snowing. Alot. It snowed about 6 inches yesterday, and we got about 8 inches last night, and it's still knowing. It's a heavy, wet snow, too.

I thought spring was on its way. I was wrong. I hate winter.

That's the way it ALWAYS is in Indiana (never that much snow though). You get two days of good weather and then a week of crap. It's like being on a rollercoaster of weather. It sucks. Why can't we just decide on something and go with it!

That crazy storm we here over the weekend. Parts of the Denver metro and the foothills area had up to 4 ft. We had a dusting of snow and about 2.5 inches of rain. However, this is Colorado and most of the snow will be gone by the end of today, except in the foothills.

Hope this is your last snowstorm!

Wow, when I saw the reference to snowstorm I thought this was an old post. I guess everyone has their problems with weather. We are down here worrying about keeping our brew cool enought to ferment and you are still dealing with snow in the middle of April. Hope it clears for your soon. It is bright & sunny, our high was 81 yesterday, might hit 90 today.

LOL! They are saying it will stop snowing by tomorrow, and might hit 40 degrees by then. We had warm weather last week, so my goldfish got moved outside to the pond, and the patio furniture is out. It's now completely covered with snow, as are my tender hops plants just starting to poke out of the ground. I guess the skiing would be great today, but I have to work.

Ah the UP.... It has been really crappy down here too, luckily it has not been snow, that is just slightly north of us, just cold and rainy since Sunday. I hope you get a warm stretch soon!

We usually have two or three decent snows over the winter but, we've also had times where we had snow dumped on us in late march.
Our weather is supposed to be in the 80's by saturday. The crabapples and redbuds are in full bloom. It will probably turn to crap and rain steadily into early summer. Last spring and summer were just too nice to have it repeat itself. Hang in there, it's coming.
The last time I was in Mich., it was late spring and I remember it being beautiful, with really blue skies and crisp clean air. Kind of flat though.

Yeah I've been thinking about you all snowed in up there...if it's an comfort, we are supposed to get some snow down here late tonight, but we are also supposed to have 70 degrees this weekend so go figure...

Sounds like a good time for a rip roaring druck...and maybe even druck dialing your friends....
