jayquellen :  I’m from the midwest, lived in CA for work for years and it was gorgeous. But I missed the seasons. 

 And now I live in NE/midwest and…. where are the seasons. We are going from winter, to deep winter, to daffadils, to deep winter to hot to deep winter. No spring. 

It was snowing and horrid here, ice, sleet, generally awful, today it warmed up to 50. A few days ago it was 78 and then 26. 

 I am so over this crap, and I love cold air. This is not cold air, it is hell.

It’s. The. Worst.  

My library is still closed from a power outage that started on Sunday!  

And I just have to say, cold/wind is one thing, some April showers are part of the deal, but these relentless, ugly, grey skies against the soggy, grey/brown earth and leafless trees is becoming too much to bear.  It’s every day.  No change.

I’m in disbelief at this point.  Which just goes along with everything else.

I would trade the all-year-round warm state I live in, for a most-part-of-the-year winter place in a heartbeat :c I HATE warm weather and very sunny days.

Girl yes, I did NOT need a Friday-Sunday nonstop snowstorm. And on top of that it’s only hit 50 twice since “spring” started, mostly been highs in the 30s only. I feel like I’ve been stuck in prison for 6 months! Add to that the fact that most of winter where I am was below zero. Not just below 32 (freezing) but below zero. You can’t even go outside except to and from your car. This weekend they claim it’ll actually be decent, I saw a 60 on the forecast, and I think the whole town is going to be outside soaking it up. It doesn’t feel like April whatsoever, it’s like some weird twilight zone thing. It’s depressing. And makes me crabby. The kids even had a snow day Monday!!!

jayquellen :  the robins here have started dying! Their food is all covered with snow and they didn’t have too long in between the last snow melting and now this. There are a lot of posts going around fb about clearing a place in the yard and what to feed them. It’s so sad! We have mourning doves with a nest with two eggs in our covered patio and idk if they’re finding food or not as they’re also ground feeders.
