What was it, the winter of 1977-78 that we were snowed in for like 2 weeks,
with NO school!
It was like an extended Christmas break.
What a year!

That and the following 2 or 3 years.

Brrrrr... the wind is blowing hard here. Right Patty?

I HATE SNOW! This has been going on for a week. I spent most my morning shoveling a pee path for my dog after I saw him pee on the deck. You can't tell where you were!

Here are my pics.

My backyard.




My street:



My poor car:


Then there is Forest who is unphased by this weather. He is mad because it is so cold he doesn't want to be outside. You can really see in this picture how mad he is.



Five minutes later he gets even worse:



Poor kitty don't you feel sorry for Forest?

I am mad that my neighbor still has their cat outside. I have put a cat carrier outside with blankets in case a stray kitty needs warmth.

Geeesh, we just drove home in a crazy snow blizzard! I am happy to be home!

Oh i hate you all, stop torturing me!! It's going to be 34 today (93.2f) that's the hottest day we've had since Summer started 3 weeks ago. This time last year though we would've already hit the hot weather in Spring but didn't for some reason.

Give me snow!!

Sending you about 2 of my 3 and half feet

We got hit hard here Friday and then again tonight.... We were down to cement on the sidewalk... but not when we finally got outside. Blizzard warnings kept us indoors... Here I am standing behind the snowblower... 2 feet of snow on my side and about 1 foot behind where it blowed from.



It sucked!

Honestly, I don't know what the big deal is about the snow, at least for me - I live in Canada, it's winter, I expect snow and cold temperatures. Friday we had a big snowstorm and it took me about 20 minutes longer to get home - no big deal. Mind you there wasn't much traffic on the roads so that helped.

I can deal with wearing extra clothing for cold weather but I cannot deal with hot, humid heat so give me snow. And, it's beautiful to look out across the snow-covered fields and trees.

It's bitterly cold here today, expecting more snow tonight too.

Our poor cold car:

Yeah, except that the windchill here was something like -20F. Brrrrrrrrr!!!

We did venture out last night for Thai food and a latte afterward. Good to get out of the house! The thermometer on the car said 2F... but didn't take the wind chill into consideration. Wind was kicking up to 30-35 mph.

Looking lovely there, Jill. Did you wear your new pearls?

What was that about a gnome? Here's a shot from someone in Vancouver, WA... posted on KATU's YouNews page (way back near the beginning... yet only from yesterday)

I have no problems going out here in Portland... if the folks around me knew how to drive, etc. They're refusing the shovel/de-ice the parking lot of my apartment complex, so it makes things all the more difficult. If I could get out of the complex, I'd be fine, without chains... but I can't get out of the complex... and two buses broke their chains right at my intersection this morning alone. Not to mention the two trucks that got stuck, and the car that came about ten feet from hitting me (I was walking on the sidewalk) because he couldn't control his car... my store is closed today (as well as yesterday), and I'm off until the 26th... at which point most of this should be under control. Portlanders/Oregonians don't get this kind of snow often... it's incredible the amount of bad driving and hysteria that comes out when it does hit here.

If you would have sent her the pink set, it would have matched her pink scarf.

I really don't think Jill will be wearing any evening gown & pearls for a looooong time to come! She'll be digging out from under for the next 6 months!

Now, if you wanna think about sending me some pretty pink pearls, I should be set to go in another day or two..

My idea of perfect weather:

70-80 degrees up until Dec 23.

Start snowing 4:30 p.m. Dec 24, and snows 2 feet deep.

Temps in the 20's until Dec 31.

Back to 70-80 Jan 1.

If I ever hit the lottery, I'd buy a house in Hawaii and one in Jackson Hole, WY. I'd go to WY for Christmas.

I do have to admit, I DO miss the snow on Christmas. It just doesn't seem the same w/o it. I used to just love taking a drive to see all the pretty lights on Christmas Eve while it was snowing out. It's just so serene, peaceful, & pretty!

How right you are! And we got hit again yesterday and more snow/rain today! It's a mess.

We're getting more snow today... it's coming down right now... not as cold as the previous storm front, but it's purdy...

Since you won't be able to wear your pretty green pearls for quite awhile, you could always loan them to me till it warms up again. It's in the 60's here right now. I promise I'll give them back!

No way Jose'! You're not getting my pretty pearls! But, you send me a airline ticket to come visit you, I might let you wear half and I can wear the others and we can go out together! What do ya think? I could use some nice weather!

How do you suppose we'd share a pearl necklace? Earrings can be separated, but a necklace? I don't think Gemlady would like it too much if you split her necklace in two!

I'll tell you what: I'll send half your plane fare IF you send the pearl earrings, and the pretty pair of dangly star earrings, too.

BTW, it's in the 70's here today. I was wearing capris & a short-sleeved shirt while out running errands.

Am I bribing you enough yet?
post #52 of 59
I was thinking more you could wear the necklase and I the earrings... but I dunno now! You are getting greedy! And mean, talking about all the warm weather!
post #53 of 59
We had a lot of snow on the ground but it is all melting!

This is what it looked like outside my house last night:

(the fuzziness in the air is fog, not snow-- it was already warm enough for things to begin to melt.)


This is what it looks like today:




Snow by stairs last night and today:




The temperature is currently SIXTY-THREE DEGREES which is almost unheard of in late December in Chicago! Unfortunately that means flooding, our basement is already flooded.

Ahh! Snow! So beautiful.

I havent seen a good snowfall since early 2004, before I moved south

Me, greedy? Only when it comes to jewelry!

If it's any consolation, it did get colder here again, and I'm not wearing capris and a short-sleeved shirt.

Did I ever tell you about the gorgeous green chrome diopside ring that I have?

Maybe we can make a trade?

No, you seemed to have forgotten to mention that! Though I don't think I'd still be able to part with them!!! Did I ever tell you about the really pretty pink jeweled watch I sent my SS 2 years ago? Oh yeah, and complete with pink toilet brush!

I don't blame you! I wouldn't be able to, either!

I already have a pink watch. (and a pink tourmaline & pink morganite!).

Well, at least it was pink!
