IT IS NOT FAIR

How come New Jersey gets all the snow and we get stupid rain?  It's snowing measured in FEET a hundred miles away.  I WANT snow.  I love snow.  Snow makes me happy.

<pout>

's not fair.

We're only suppsed to dip under 32F for about two hours... 4am and 5am. Then back up to 39F for tomorrow. March is coming in like a Lion.

Better than an ice storm, I suppose. Although I would not mind one last ginormous snowstorm. Just for kicks and giggles.

Your sis is going to lose that bet. :)

EXACTLY. I want one big, huge, ginormous, oh-my-god-the-world-is-ending-in-snow snowstorm. It would make me practically incoherent with joy.

But NOOOOOOOO - I get nasty, raw, makes my joints ache rain...

But it IS better than an ice storm.

Hate to tell ya, but Sunday it's going to be 56 degrees out.

Those odds of a major blowout snowstorm before it gets too warm aren't quite done with us yet, but it's not happening this weekend, for certain.

Sigh. No, we're done. It would have been nice, but by now I'm ready for a change, so spring can sprung if it so chooses.

But one of these times there will be balance, and we'll have a whole SEASON of storms. Everyone will whine, and I'll be in my glory!

But not this season, alas...

Ah,

Come on over our way. After yesterday we have some to spare.

I know. You got yours AND mine...

Remember where I grew up. I'm like this honestly.

You'd be in heaven visiting my niece...she's outside Baltimore and sent an amazing picture of the over-5-foot snowdrift up against the side of her house. It's amazing because it's taken at her eye-level and she can't see over it...

After several weeks of this s***, you can have it. Please. I'm tired of being snowbound with a four-year-old and a one-year-old. We can only take so much Go Diego Go!...

(Disclosure: I live near Philadelphia, y'all.)

And I grew up in Upstate NY lake-effect snow country. It should be coming up here - not hitting you!

But you don't have to shovel rain!

My back says if you want to come shovel, feel free. It took an hour to go 15 miles last night and then I had to shovel my way IN to my driveway, having thankfully had the forethought to put the shovel in the car before leaving for work.

I also had to blow a personal day today to stay home, which, given that there was a 2 feet deep swath of packed, frozen slush left by the plow at the end of the driveway. I didn't finish clearing until 11AM and it's still falling. I am however, of the mindset that I'd rather shovel 6 inches at a time twice than a foot at a time once. Just me.

I just saw a great description of this year's weather pattern -- Hartford CT is in the middle of a "snownut". Because there's a big donut of big snow with a hole in CT.

Friday's strange weather was definitely entertaining to watch -- one of my 2 days/week where I get to be near a window. Someone upstairs had the weather ipod on shuffle -- and kept hitting fastforward. Rain, sleet, light snow, horizontal snow, bright sunshine...not in that order, and never more than 15 minutes at a time.
