Enough, Already!

Anybody else sick of winter?????? Haven't minded it much before today. This morning, while trying to snow blow through the banks left in the driveway by the DPW, I realized I have probably done more snow removal so far this winter than in the last three combined. Two trains of thought compete for control. The first: This really sucks! Heavy, wet, compacted snow, shoveling, thick layers of ice underneath, cars so frozen over they look like something out of Dr. Zhivago! Enough, already! The second: Hey, you live in Upstate New York! What the hell do you expect? Be grateful that the last couple of winters have been relatively easy! Quit your bitching! 

So what are you thinking about this winter? How are you coping? What attitude are you trying to maintain?

  1. I'd like to think of moving south, but instead the Brothers and I may be moving to Mucky Hill after our Monastery near Woodstock burned down.
    We had enough snow down there for my taste. Up here the snow is ... awful!
