@krstino1012:  I hear ya! Canadian here ( Ontario to be exact), and this has been one of the coldest/snow filled winters since my childhood. Spent 17 years living in Southern California and moved back here a little over 2 years ago. Even though I do miss the weather, family and friends, I don’t miss anything else there. Told my FI that as much as I hate hand washing dishes I’d rather us get a snowblower this year.

@arsing89:  ugggh another PA girl…. I am starting to get worried about where we’ll put another four inches of snow lol.

That said, I am COUNTING down until we see the 40’s temps… I will probably be doing happy dances!  I hope it comes with sunshine too because I am severely lacking the sun department.  I NEED SUNSHINE.

Definitely not alone! I live in canada and feel exactly the same way you do. It’s ugly, depressing and you’re right, it’s also dangerous. We recently got back from Hawaii and that made my winter depression a thousand times worse. Spring can’t come soon enough!!

@Sunnyday278:  Yea I have no idea where we are going to put another 4 inches either. I can hardly see to get out of my driveway so I’m hoping they are wrong about tonight’s storm.

@arsing89:  We’re got a “heat wave” coming this week, too… After getting about 8 inches of snow.  I have a feeling that will melt then turn to ice when we get another big freeze by the weekend.  🙁

Seriously, the worst winter in recent memory.. I am so ready for spring.

@arsing89:  Definitely.  We live in town, so our driveway is between the foundation of our house, and the neighbor’s sidewalk. Fortunately our driveway is as wide as it is, otherwise we’d REALLY be in trouble… but we have two huge piles out front that do make it a bit hard to see.  We also can’t pile too much in the yard, because 1) our driveway is actually excavated a little. The house is on a hill (like it has a walkout basement, except you walk out front street side, not backyard side) so the backyard is much higher than the driveway in the back, and we have two little doggies…. my dachshund can’t handle 6 inches of snow, let alone feet of snow, poor little guy!

As another side note, one good thing about winter for me is that there are no thunderstorms. I am actually pretty scared of them.

But I keep hearing about thundersnow. Like… REALLY?!?!? Haven’t gotten any yet my way, but I am worried lol.

Ugh! I feel you bees, this winter has been brutal – today we’re having “unusually warm” temperatures, and we’re still at -27 with the windchill.  There have been way too many days of -40, and I miss being warm!

The only positive is the days are starting to get longer, so while it’s still dark on the walk to work at least it’s twilight when I’m walking home!
