@stardustintheeyes:  SO OVER IT. We’re about 2 hours southeast of you. 

I am so sick of shoveling, sliding all over the roads, worrying about the power going out, school delays and not being able to work from home (government peon here, too).

I was talking to some co-workers the other day who agree that the weather is getting to *everyone* Peeople are in bad moods, cranky, crabby and everything just feels like it’s in a funk. My kids are climbing the walls, dying to run around, instead we’re stuck inside and can’t even sled or build a snowman because “exposed skin will get frostbite in 5 minutes” under these awful conditions.

I’m just thankful I have a full tank of gas in my car and a warm place to be at night.

Thinking summery thoughts…

@stardustintheeyes:  I feel you! I also have lived in the Midwest my whole life but unlike you I am STILL not used to the cold weather! It turns me into such a bum and I never want to leave the house when it’s freezing and snowing! I am a completely different person in the spring/summer than I am in the winter and I can’t wait to move a little more south where the winters aren’t as treacherous so I can be in a better mood year-round! This winter has been particularly rough and I am so sick of it as well! I live in a private community where the city does not plow and the weather management team has not touched our streets since Saturday morning so driving the mile out of my development this morning was awful. Hopefully the groundhog won’t see his shadow or whatever next week and this will all be over soon!

@stardustintheeyes:  Even though we are nowhere near as cold here (NY/NJ), it’s still annoying. I am sick of looking like sh!t, having dry itchy skin, getting a runny nose wherever I go, etc.. Also, layers and layers of winter gear? Not flattering on anyone.

Most of all, I’m sick of how the minute there is a blizzard – even if it is a huge blizzard – my job makes it a point to tell us that we have to work no matter what. Ok, one snow day will not bankrupt us. And I’m envious of DH’s job b/c his company shuts down for the smallest snowstorm whereas I am stuck struggling in the snow. Ugh.

Well I’m in Ottawa, Canada and it’s freaking cold here. It’s been this way for weeks now. I am at home with a toddler and a baby and I can’t stick my nose outside at all, it’s very depressing.

HOLY MOLY. I just looked up what -3 was in Celius = -19. Frigging MINUS NINETEEN. 

Hope you are all keeping warm in your homes and work 🙁 

I complain when it’s +3 Celius here in Wales lol, I guess that I have nothing to complain about really.

I hear ya!

I too am in Chiberia (have to use that term more!) and I’ve never liked winter, but this year I have less tolerance than previous years; maybe because December was so bad.

I am babysitting my niece and nephew because my sister and her husband both had to work and the kids want to go outside so bad because they love snow, but I keeping telling them not today. Frown

My car almost didn’t start – and it was in the garage!  I’m sick of the mess of the snow too!  It just gets everywhere!  And every time we shovel the driveway, the stupid snow plow comes by and piles a huge mound of snow on the end!  It’s too cold right now to even shovel!

I’m supposed to have an interview tomorrow so I wonder if that’s even still on!

Winter sucks.

@stardustintheeyes:  Gotcha. I feel your pain. On days like those (bad driving days), I’m glad I take public transit, but then worry that I’ll be stranded int the city if my bus service gets suspended. :/

@stardustintheeyes:  I’m nowhere near where you live and I HATE winter! This year has been particularly horrible with the frigid temps and the snow! I’m ready to bag it and move to the virgin islands. And we still have February to get through! UGH!

@stardustintheeyes:  My other nieces and nephews are off school too, so this is the 3rd day this year alone.  They had some days off in September because of extreme heat as well, so they’re going to be going to school a lot later than they planned!

@stardustintheeyes:  I am more so over the ice. It rained on Friday and was really warm. Then yesterday the wind brought temps down to -30, and so evrything froze over. Not much snow right now, but everything is so slippery. I was crawling across the parking lot, and I still slide sideways because there is nothing to grip to. Luckily I wore my ice cleats with morning or I probably would have slid across the whole lot to get into work.
