Don't say I didn't warn you

After the hot, humid days of summer and the blazing colors of the harvest season, I look forward to that first blanket of snow. Covering the ground like a thick down blanket.

But....enough is enough! I blame that fat, furry rat. You know the one, the one I told you about a couple days ago, that stuck his beady little nose out of his hole and decided we were going to have six more weeks of winter!

Yep, it's on it's way. 4-8 inches is predicted. Not enough to really enjoy, but enough to cause the roads to be a mess. Enough to have to pull out the snow boots and gloves again and have that mess left by my kitchen door. Enough to have to pull the snow shovel back out. But yet not enough to be able to get the snowmobiles out, so I'll have to listen to kids gripe. Ugh.

Welcome to Detroit Superbowl fans!

Six more weeks of what? 60's, 70's, and 80's all "winter" in Dallas. I just hope there's some winter left when I get to Colorado in a few weeks.

Hello! As for the furry little rat, I love Punxstawney Phil! But, I don't like the idea of More Winter...only the winter has been really mild here in New Mexico. And a friend pointed out to me today that the calendar starts spring doesn't start for another 6 weeks anyway!

But shoot, if you don't want more snow and it's coming, I can see how it would get you down.

But a good snow storm is a Good Reason to curl up with a cup of Java and a good book. :)

Thanks for your comments on my blog. How did you find it?

I always feel sorry for Punxstawney
Phil. There he is in a nice cozy hybernation and some goon reaches into his den and with a jerk, rudly awakens poor Phil. That's just not right. I wonder if Phil ever goes back to hybernating or if he's one of those types who once he's up he's up for good? Curious minds want to know.
