51 Days until Spring

This is definitely one of those winter's to remember !
I know it's not just Michigan but many other places as well are suffering through the brutal cold.
No school here again and that's a good thing. if I still had young children I wouldn't let them walk
or stand outside for a bus.
We haven't had many days that are over 10 degrees this month add the wind and we have 20 to 30
below wind chill. Our normal snowfall is around 90/95 in. and we already have 142.
We are finding it difficult to shovel the snow over the high banks plus few places left to put it.
Because of the cold not much works to melt the icy roads. The plows have a tough time keeping up with
the drifting yet continue to do the best they can.
Even our two Golden's shy away from the door at times looking at me as if to say they've decided it just not necessary at the moment.
Do I hate winter? No just the awful cold and the endless days of white before I get to see green again.It seems to last longer as I grow older.
It is home,it is warm inside and I will wait to see that bright green of spring as I do every year and I will wish as always winter didn't last so long.
Stay warm and safe where ever you are,only 51 days until Spring !


  1. Only 51 more days? Wow! That's not bad ;o) We are getting the same weather!! Snow shoveling twice, if not 3 times a day! Maybe cutting the grass isn't that bad? LOL! Big warm Hugs ;o)

  2. oh,honey..lot's of snow and cold!!!
    a brutal winter for so many.
    be safe and warm.

  3. stay warm, this time will pass! It is supposed to get warmer for us tomorrow, today was brutal.

  4. We're getting the brutal cold, but the snow keeps hopping right over Vermont for the third year in a row. I would gladly take some of that snow! I miss it! :)

  5. Oh my goodness, Amy. It has been a terrible winter. The cold just seems to linger and on and on. We have never had so many days on the single digits. Stay warm sweetie! Mina

  6. I am counting the days too...I have never seen so much snow on the ground.. Way too much. We have 3 feet on the ground and way too cold! I want to see the sun again and flowers too. See my post on my blog.

    Thank you for sharing.

  7. I am so waiting! With a new puppy and now developing eczema because of our extremes I am more than tired of winter! Hope you are well dear one! :)
