Stop Snowing Already!

Spring Snow in the SLC

“Please snow, stop. It has been Spring for nearly a month and you are killing us. We have had enough!”

Every time I pack up our snow boots and winter cloths, it starts all over again. I, for one, have had enough. Do you have any idea what this grey sky is doing for my self-diagnosed SAD? Enough already!

  1. Our Snowy Day Part II

    Kyle and Eli just came running into the office. It seems as though Kyle was just sitting there in the midst of their gigantic fort when Kyle’s clock fell on his head. Ouch!

    After consoling Kyle for a few minutes, I told them how well they have been playing, so well that if they each pick up six things, they could watch a movie. They suggested that they each pick up five couch pillows and wondered if they could share their sixth thing: Eli’s full size mattress. Somehow , with their super-human-boy-strength, they pulled it off Eli’s bed and then pushed into Kyle’s room.

    Kyle just came running back into the office and told me that they needed a little help with the mattress. I suggested they pick up their five pillows and then come and get me. What I will do to keep them busy on a snowy day. Hey and quite frankly, I am am baffled as to how they got it off the bed in the first place.

  2. dude, that sucks. its merely all gray (of the threatening-to-rain variety) today and *I* feel the S.A.D. kicking in. if it snowed i think i’d take to my bed.

  3. and up here in merry ole MICHIGAN, it’s warm, sunny and nauseatingly cheerful out.
    (i will let you know when I need to eat my words, and dig out the snowsuits again–probably tomorrow)

    gorgeous pics, btw:)

  4. I told Guy the other day that I really think I suffer from SAD. Ever since Spring (actually, today it’s like summer 90-something degrees, imagine!) arrived I have felt much, much better.

    I’m sorry it’s still yucky for you. That pisses me off considering that it is unseasonably HOT here. I wish we could send each other a little of what we have to make PERFECT SPRING WEATHER.

    Wouldn’t that be nice? It is in theory. 🙂

  5. Oh that makes me sad. Those poor, cold tulips.

    I probably shouldn’t say this, but it shows how delusional Floridians are, but tonight while walking the dog, a neighbor said to me, “My! It’s CHILLY out, eh?”

    It’s 82. And 9 p.m. For crying out loud.

  7. Oh crikey, I’m sorry. I’m SORRY. Moveable Type started screaming at me and then there were two. Am not crazy stalkery lady, but I think you know that.

  8. I know, i’m soo tired of this whole “cold” thing. I turned my heat off a few weeks ago and i refuse to turn it back on! So i’m living under 3,000 blankets until it gets a little bit warmer! This is one of those times that i shouldn’t be so stubborn (read cheap)

  9. Well, it’s time for me to spice up these wonderful comments. Aparently Tom Cruise’s baby (actually Katie’s baby, it’s not like Tom was pregnant while filming MI3 LOL) was born today tuesday! I’ve included a link with this comment… has anyone already found out what the baby’s name will be?

  10. I used to think that SAD was just BS (b/c I lived in sunny FL, but then I went up north for a while and I’ll be damned! It’s freakin REAL!!

    Cool picts, hope the sun shines soon!!

  11. It was 101 degrees here until the baseball size hail and storm came through. I’ll gladly trade your weather for mine!

  12. Hoping the snow has melted… and like busy mom, i’m anxious to chat about Tomkitten!

  13. WOW snow!! Would it be mean and heartless to say that I’m glad it is at your end of the country and not mine? Although, if it was snowing here then maybe our lawn wouldn’t look quite so much like a jungle. A few more days and we may move into redneck status!!

  14. When this happens, and it always does here, you know, I remember my college friend Tracyl, the first really open gay man I ever knew. He was tall and thin and stately and always wore a cardigan and pearls. And when it snowed like this one spring, he stopped in the midst of a lawn, pointed to the one lonely blade of green grass sticking up out of the snow, put his other hand on his hip, cocked his head, and said, “Girl, you know what that grass is thinking. It’s thinking, ‘Girl. This WRECKS me!'”
