    Default I'm Dreaming of a White.....

    EASTER!!! When the hell is this winter going to end? Someone please tell old man winter that he won and we give up. Parts of New England are again under a Winter Storm Warning and my area is expecting anywhere between 4-12 inches of heavy wet snow tonight. Parts of my deck have just started to emerge from the snow. I am supposed to be having a pool installed next week but can't see that happening. Hopefully it will stop snowing by July and I will be able to go swimming in it. Happy Easter!!

    I hear you, loud and clear. We just had another snowstorm followed by freezing rain. I can't believe we didn't get any calls out of it.

    I heard that summer will be on July 10th this year. Enjoy that day!

    3-5" overnight then 1-2" tomorrow! (getting the rant on like Hawkeye from MASH) "We want something else...we want something else!" At this point I think I'd actually enjoy mud season.

    I guess that I wont add that other than a freak 1/4" of snow/hail that fell on Sunday night, we have had nothing but green grass since mid Feb.

    EVEN I had to break down the other day and buy mower gas to cut the grass. (this is a feat in itself because I usually refuse to cut the grass before April.)

    For all you out there in the cold and the white, I hope things go well, and that the damn white stuff does go away soon.

    So are we. But that's bad, we're a Ski Resort!

    This is the worst winter on record for us. Even the guys that have been here 25+ years say they have never seen such a dry winter.

    The real problem is going to be the forest fire hazard this summer if we don't get any spring moisture. We do not need another 2003!

    I am with FTMPTB15, sadly I am stuck inside having to see patients today at school here in beautiful North Carolina. This stinks. IT supposed to be in the mid 60s or so for the next week too .

    I talked to my father in law last week and he said he has about 4 1/2 feet of snow on the front lawn - not counting what the snowbanks look like. Nope, I don't miss the New England snow at all.

    Well, maybe right after it falls and it is pristine and untouched, but as soon as I have to shovel it, the amusement factor is gone.

    Y'all enjoy all that snow, ya hear!

    Unhappy Uh-oh....

    I think that Easter may be cancelled this year...

    It's not the weather.

    Nor is it any legal action.


    The real reason?

    Bring it on bucko. You know, if you keep threatening to come South and then not do it, I'm going to stop believing you pretty soon.

    We'll head over to Wrightsville Beach near Wilmington after you try to paste me with snowballs. Just remember, you'll run out of ammunition eventually, and then you're all mine.......Plus if the weather keeps up in the 60s and 70s, they're all going to melt too quickly so I have nothing to worry about.

    Ladder8, I have instructed my wife that if she happens to find me dead at the computer, with one of your pictures on the screen................... She is to hunt you down and kill you, or hug your neck. Not sure which she'll choose!

    cfdeng3-----------I'm with you on this one! Not too far from you, up here in Boston, it seems like we get a significant snow storm once or twice a week! I think you better put your pool project on hold. Hey, at least we have the Red Sox.
