...... and it's snowing!!! There's lots more coming Wed and Thurs. Looks like we're skipping Spring, Summer and Fall to go straight into next Winter. So, where's the global warming??

We're supposed to get 2-4 inches. Fortunately don't have to go anywhere until tomorrow which is supposed to be nice,

Think you'll be blessed with some coming thru our jernt today. We're scheduled for 1/2" or rain here in the valley and 8-10 in in the mtns. WW

I feel lucky. All we got was rain.
And just yesterday I got sunburn while pruning my raspberries.

Yikes! We ended up with five inches of very heavy snow!
- Thomas - 03-22-2011 04:46 PM
I don't feel lucky anymore. We are supposed to receive 3-6 inches Wednesday.
This winter has convinced me that the time has come to seek another locale. I'm officially looking.

Thomas - Do you ever watch HGTV, and especially their "House Hunters International"? That will get you thinking about spending at least part of each year somewhere else. Italy looks VERY attractive to us, especially Tuscany and points north.

I've had a dream of living in Italy, but the reality of it has yet to take shape, mainly for financial reasons. But yes, I am considering either a partial living elsewhere or a full one. This June, I might take a scouting trip.
I can take winter, but I am truly tired of the arctic-like conditions here, as well as the length of the season, which is the longest of the four--literally. Winter here starts late October/early November and ends somewhere in April.

You wish you were 64, 68, or 69--oh wait: you aren't talking about age.
I hope the vitamin D poisoning of the sun causes you to sweat profusely...
- Kcwhippet - 03-23-2011 02:37 PM
Snowing again, with about 5" or more over the next 36 hrs.

Doesn't your caalender read MARCH 23rd???? We're well into spring McWhipster.WW

The crocuses are blooming over the cess pool. But the round spot is surrounded by a foot of snow pack!
- Thomas - 04-08-2011 08:24 PM
I was arguing, er, discussing with Anne the idea of moving to a new location. In defense of not wanting to move, she said that she must live where there are four seasons.
I told her that I want that too, and since here we experience only two seasons, we should move!

Well in Northern New England White Easters are not that unusual. But this year's is about as late as it can get. Well, we have an inch on the ground, and it is still coming down steadily. Happy Easter everyone!

Happy Bunny to you and Bev Karlotta. WW

Maybe first full day of spring to you, but its hot like dead center summer here in Austin, TX
- Thomas - 04-23-2011 11:29 PM
We made it to spring today--about 70 degrees F, but only after a tremendous rainfall.
I have, however, made my travel plans for June, when I will explore the West Coast for potential relocation spots.
