Will winter never end?

Dear Mother Nature,

I am so done with winter.
So very done.

The end of last week was wonderful - all the snow melted, the sun was shining and it was almost spring-like.

And then the snow started yesterday.
Then it turned to rain.
And then freezing rain.

For the record - the weathermen did NOT predict this ice storm.
They said it was going to RAIN.
Not rain and then freeze every single thing in sight.
(They also didn't predict this snowstorm we're having tonight...until some time last night).

Last night I got 3 hours of sleep.

Because I fear trees.
Yeah, I said it.
I fear trees....especially when they are covered in 1/3 inch of ice and the wind is howling.
THAT makes trees fall down. And crack. And land on my roof

So...last night I sat up all night listening to tree limbs fall on my house, waiting for the worst.
Now, I'm not normally a "nervous Nelly" but....right now I'm a wreck.

This morning we lost power at 9:30 a.m.
As I write this, it is 7 p.m. and we still have no power.
I am at my parent's house with the kids and Kevin is home alone - in our cold, dark house with the dogs.
And...it is STILL snowing.

In a word - this sucks.

Mother Nature you are a nasty witch.

Spring had better get here soon.
I can't handle much more winter.


  1. I'm so with you! I've already told my hubby that he better start looking for a job where there's no snow in Feb! I'm so done with Ohio...

    Hope you all are having fun hanging at your parents! :)

  2. Amen!

    We just got power restored after 3 days! Ugh.

  3. Aww, I'm sorry Traci. How about if you add a couple days to the end of your DisneySMMoms trip and we go house hunting??
