The entire state of North Dakota got a blizzard bad enough to shut down the majority of the state (which takes a lot, mind you)...last Tuesday. WE WERE SO CLOSE! So. Close. Granted half of the snow is gone and melted. Hopefully it melts slowly so we don't have to deal with a really bad flood.

Dear ND, I'm not sure if you're aware that tomorrow is April, because it is. It is supposed to be warm. Nevermind. Knowing you, it'll still look like this in the middle of June. Or at least a blizzard then.

LOL!!! Yes OHIO stop getting ideas from ND!! The snow had been gone for WEEKS and it even started getting into the 50's and 60's when suddenly, my horse's winter blanket had to come back out of hiding and temps remained steady in the 30's...and then snow. They were calling for "light snow" and then we got dumped on.

And where has the sun gone? Oh well, we had like, what, 4 whole days in a row of sun?? Ohio, isn't that some kind of RECORD for you anyway??? Wouldn't want you to overexert yourself anyway...thanks for that 4 days of Vitamin D this year, I'll go back to being pale as a ghost and getting my sun from bulbs at the tanning place again.

Sincerely,

Cooped Up in Copley

I feel your pain hoofprints! We were fortunate this last round and the snow ironically stayed SOUTH of us. The 30s however need to go! We had a teaser of 50s and 60s for a couple days and then back to winter again :( Poor horses are confused if they should finish shedding or not, I would like to get that over with and stop wearing and ingesting 20 lbs of hair a day!

I know it is such CRAP!!! I mean, I guess I'll be thankful it didn't accumulate on the roads since they were too warm, but I was unpleasantly surprised at how much stuck around on the grass. Can I move to FLORIDA now??? LOL

Dude. I don't even think it got up to 60 here before we got dumped again.

My equine teacher was making fun of everyone from this state (himself included) because in October when it's 40 degrees, we break out the winter coats and gloves. If it's 40 in March, we are running around in tshirts or light sweatshirts and driving on the interstate with our windows down. We are a strange bunch.
