Enough!!!! I!!!! Have!!!! Had it!!!!!

with this farking snow. I am sick and tired of all this snow, snow, snow, snow, nothing but snow. I DON"T WANT ANY MORE SNOW!!!!

I am getting depressed. Very, very depressed. I want to see green trees, sunshine, 70 degrees, and a light, whispering breeze. I want the sun to go down at 9pm instead of 5pm. I want to wake up with then sun just coming above the horizon, instead, of it coming up after after I've been up for 3 hours.

I miss summer.

Oh the weather outside is frightful but the fire is so delightful and as we've no place to go let it snow, let it snow, let it snow......

No reason you can't ride in the cold and snow....why many ride in the cold and snow....why don't you just give it a try!!!

How much snow have you received so far?

We've had about 30" at the house since mid-December. There's still 20+ in the yard, but the roads are clear. I rode 35 miles today. The hands were a wee bit chilled (need new gloves), but the clear blue skies sure were nice.

I'd take 6 months of nothing but snow over our Summers. Granted, I've never seen that much snow in my life, but I really, really hate Summer.

Get over to California this week if you're sick of snow. It's like someone flipped the switch from "January" to "June", except for the lack of light.

Mommy must have let you skip school that day, because Seattle is a hell of a lot more north than Ohio.

Enough! I have had it! It shouldn't be over 80 degrees in January! (Well, maybe it would be okay if I were in New Zealand, but I'm in freaking California!)

You have a bike; you don't need nearly that much.

I've had it with the cold, too. I've lived in Philly for almost 8 years now and I'm itching to get back to warmer climates.

It's bad enough that it's cold, but it's cold with NO SNOW here.. so it's not even any fun. Sheesh.

Pine trees do not count as green. They are almost black.

I want GREEN GRASS

I love the stuff. Last year's record-breaking snowfall here in Madison was just a bit over what I enjoy, but this winter, I'm still loving the stuff. But getting a good bike commute in is key. Today was just lovely.

it's this white fluffly stuff that you think is from heaven, but when, in fact, it is from the devil and is designed to drive you slowly insane.
