Real windy today with snow squalls. I had to head down to Toronto this morning and I figure I missed this by 3 or 4 minutes.

Well, I can tell you that I HATE snowflakes or the crunch of snow under my feet or that brown slushy stuff that appears when that 'beautiful' (NOT) snow is mixed in with dirt, engine exhaust etc or the sleet that often comes before or after snow or red noses (save those for the Rudophs) or that drippy stuff that comes out of red noses or shoveling that white cr** or large limbs or entire trees that fall onto my driveway or house or in the street taking out electrical lines and possibly electrocuting small animals or large people AND putting my warm house into total darkness---- or a frigid house that I can't combat with all the clothes I own and gives me chilblains or grey/white c*** that's tracked into the house no matter how many times a person stomps their feet or not having a car start when it should or the kids being home because it's a 'snow day' or--- or----- or------ well you get my point!

Grant you Kayelle has her own seasons. There is the fire season, flood season, mud slide season, etc. You get the idea. But she never has a snow storm as a reason to stay home and lounge about. Poor Kayelle. She is so deprived. Oh yeah, she is the one that is taking that fantastic trip, isn't she. Hmmm.....
Hmmm. Well, I guess all the weather reports about the East or South or Northern U.S. have been made up. Ya think?

The Kayelles of the world can lounge about by their pool or on the beach and not be confined to huddling in their homes for lounging.

Poor us. LOL (I just love Fisking-----look it up.

Thank gawd!
I remember one bad year here they did not want people grilling outdoors. Maybe they expected more sparks in those days or lumped the home grillers in with the camping grillers.

Same argument Himself and I have. He would have loved to retire to FL. Told me so when we were engaged. I took the ring off and told him he had to pick between FL and me because there was no way I would move to a part of the country where it was summer for 8 or 9 months of the year, with the other months being hot like hades. I too like the changing seasons, but this winter has been a rough one - more like the ones I enjoyed when I was young. This year I'm done.

We're in MA because his job was moved up here and we kinda needed the income. We're still here because Mr. Un-dhandyman hasn't motivated himself to fix what needs fixing so we can move...back to OH with the same kind of weather but with both of our kids still there. Family. That's why I'll stay up north.
