Oh gosh honey it's been here since October too. 8 and a half months of winter, one month of mud, and 3 months of unbearable heat. It takes a special breed of people to call the plains home lol

Lol, our seasons are the same up here, although it's not plains here at all. Coldest I have had to experience here since I moved up here was -52c for a few days.... nothing quite like that.

I hate the snow. It has caused two horse injuries this week alone. It is so high in their paddocks. The filly next to Walter was going over the fences to other pens, and wound up hurting herself slipping by the fence.

Ya the storm was icky last night. Highways were pure ice.

Last couple days have been brutal here too. Pouring rain sunday (that helped. Lower banks) 6 inches of snow today. I am ready for spring. The horses are shedding so it must be coming! :)

Ready for spring too 3feet of snow and today it feels like January weather.
Cold and windy last year by this time the snow was gone. I'm sick of winter already.

June is looking good! I can't even say May, because we have been known to get snow in May
I normally like snow and winter. We have had so much freezing rain and bad roads this year I am sick of the accidents, deaths, and WINTER!!!!

We just had horrible roads yesterday, they were fine all weekend, and then fine again this afternoon. Yesterday and this morning they were a sheet of ice. It got warm, and then the wind blew snow across the roads and it stuck and then turned to ice.

On a happier note, I spent the last two weekends on the road and thankfully they were good both weekends!
I get to go back up home on Easter weekend so I am pumped about that! I get to visit home 3 times this month!

I'm in southern Maine and we've had a horrible winter! So much snow! I haven't even been able to ride Fancy since I got her (early January) not because she's not ready, but because there's so much snow! I went over to my trainer's (she's my neighbor too so we bring Fancy over a lot) house and her ring is muddy and slushy since we've had so much different weather; snow, rain, and warm sun=MUD!
