#MicroblogMonday #4 – Winter, Where Are You?

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.

I’m having a hard time believing it’s winter. You’re probably thinking “But it’s cold. Like really cold.”

You’re right.

But as much as I despise winter (and the cold), it doesn’t feel like winter because we haven’t gotten any snow. Okay, fine. We’ve gotten an inch here. An inch there. But usually by this time, we’ve gotten at least one major storm that’s dropped more than 8 inches on us. So far, nothing.

Winter, Where Are YouGratisography

Now. Don’t take this as complaining. I’d really rather we don’t have a bad winter. I don’t like the snow. I don’t like the cold. I may be a “hardy New Englander” purely because I’ve lived here my whole life, but I’m definitely meant to be in a warmer climate.

But it’s not winter until we get a big storm. Yes, the clean-up is usually a mess. And sure, big storms can be dangerous. But there is something about being cooped up in your home, curled up on the couch with a good book and big cup of hot chocolate (or tea, or really whatever is your forte during snowstorms). And a heated blanket. Because you can’t go through a snowstorm without a heated blanket.

Another reason – if we don’t get snow, we’re definitely going to be in a drought come spring and summer. And that’s just bad.

So Mother Nature, if you’re reading this, and I can’t believe I’m asking this, but can you please give us a bit more snow? Just for a couple of weeks. By March, I want all the snow gone and the glorious spring like conditions coming in.

And just for the record, I’m only asking because I don’t want a drought this summer. I still really don’t like winter.

  1. We haven’t had a flake of snow for two years. I still remember that one glorious snow day in 2013 when the girls stayed home and we made snow angels and ate freshly made brownies. Maybe our true winters are on their way.

  2. First up, I have to tell you that I lurrve your theme. It is so elegant and girly at the same time! Second, thank you so much for visiting and commenting on my blog.

    And third, I have to tell you that I hate cold. I have lived in a largely hot and humid place all my life. When the temperature drops even a little bit, I am miserable!! And being somewhat similar, you are asking for snow…! Wow.. you are really putting your mind over your heart here :)

    1. Thank you!! It took me a LONGGG time to find a theme I really liked. I feel like I changed the look of the blog at least 3 times in the last year. But I adore this one. Clean, simple and girly (like you said!).

      I’m only asking for snow… just once. I like being curled up in my house in a snowstorm. I don’t, however, enjoy the clean up or driving in it :)

  3. I’d love to send some your way! We’ve got a decent amount now and more supposed to be coming tonight and tomorrow night. I generally don’t mind snow at this time of the year, and I guess I’m not really minding it so much now, but being pregnant during the winter sure is different. I only just found a pair of outside pants that fit and keep me warm. 😀
    Give me another month or less and I will be totally sick of snow! But more sick of the cold!

  4. I have mixed feelings about snow, too. I love snow days. Love being trapped in the house. Love the excuse to read all day and not get anything else accomplished. And yet, there are deadlines. Work continues on since I work remotely. Snow days are harder now. I want them and I don’t want them at the very same time.
