For all the winter lovers

A friend in MN sent me an email today and the photo made me laugh. Carol usually gets this way about winter around February and her gardening urges start to kick in then she's ready for winter to get gone.

That's hysterical and after battling the windstorm on the interstate today I feel the same.

I felt that way about winter last year. It's still not my favorite time, but I HATED all that snow with a passion.

I think Dick is starting to feel this way - he's getting a little tired of all the shoveling. Right now the piles of snow are so high that when Judy has her car in the driveway next door we can't see it. Someone at CURVES this morning told me that she almost got hit by her neighbor driving out of the driveway because she couldn't see her. And more snow is on the way. It can stop anytime now. The temps are below zero again at night. The rest of the country warms up enough so that the snow melts at a reasonable rate. We will probably have it here until mid April at this rate. And then we'll have flooding. Okay - got that off my chest -- no more complaining. I'm retired, don't have to drive in it in the mornings, and I'm happy.

That shoveling gets old. I was lucky I had the snowblower that first year I bought it. Barb was still at the other house and by the end you couldn't see her door the wall was so high. Took forever to melt. And once it gets snowblower high you can't shovel--you have to blow to get it over the top. Can't believe he wants to quit skiing yet though.

I felt like the snowman this morning. No snow, just high winds, but NO POWER!!! Great photo.

Oh no - he doesn't want to quit skiing, just shoveling. We are going to Wild Mountain (locally) this Saturday with the ski club. Then next weekend we are going to upper Michigan to ski for the weekend and then the weekend after that we leave for Idaho for a week skiing. And after that -- I will be ready to quit skiing but I'm sure he won't.

I will be anxious to take some pictures in Michigan. Typically, because of the lake effect off of Lake Superior, they have snow that is 2 stories high when we get to the Michigan border. I'll post them if they are as high as they usually get. It's unbelievable.

I've heard stories about the snow in the UP but never seen it personally. Stories about using the 2nd story window to enter and exit the house, etc. I've seen photos of Lake Superior in winter that are amazing. Hope you get some good ones for us. Makes me remember our hike on the UP. Such a great area. Hwy 2 is one of my favorite highways to drive across MN and MI.
