I know how you feel! Im in MN. Its looking mighty white outside the past couple of days here, probably had at least 3 feet of snow on the ground..... then 3 days ago it started to rain, it rained for 2 days down pouring at times (ended up getting over1/2 inch the weather guy said) then last night it started to turn into snow again and has been snowing since like 11pm last night. UGH. MN is the only place where the weather can range from -34degrees the beginning of Jan, to low 40s the middle of Jan, and now rain then snow. JEEZE! I cant wait until spring and summer again

Where are you at Smrobs?

Ps. There was a 6 ft drift in front of the barn. I pretty much had to climb it, then roll down the other side into the barn. At least Lillie and Lyric are tucked warmly inside. Getting water was a adventure. I get water from the corral drinker and instead of going through the gate, I climbed up the snow drift and stepped over a 5 ft gate and walked down the other side. Bleh!! Definately ready for spring.

We had some "good" weather for the past week and a half. It was in the 30's and even reached mid 40's one day..then bam..a blizzard!

I have no idea how you deal with it. I went from having summer for 10 months and winter for 2 months to having winter for 10 months and summer for 2. (Ok..just kidding...but sometimes I wonder if I'll ever warm up again!) I've been up here for 8 years. I sure do miss azaelas.

I see. It's actually a bit odd how weather can be so different in different places.

I'm freezing my sweet little butt over here with a lot of snow. Even snow isn't problem, I like it, but this totally freezing (-20C or -4F) climate is.

I agree with you TaMMa89. Even though I'm a transplant from the south, I don't mind the snow all that much. It's really the frigid temps that get to me. Today with the wind, (which there always seems to be wind here) (the last two days the wind has been steady at 40 mph and today the wind is 20 mph with a windchill of -7 below.) Tomorrow the highs are suppose to be between -20 and
-30.

Yea. Actually I'm happy with snow since it looks so nice and clean and makes the dark season of an year to seem more lighter. I'd still be more happier if temperature was just a bit under freezing point so snow could stay but it'd still be warm enough to go out without wrapping yourself so great bunch of clothes that it's almost impossible to move under all these clothes.

We had a huge snow blizzard yesterday and i had to stand in it waiting for my bus after my riding lessons for over 20mins (bus was 7mins late due to weather)! My hair was completely white and my bag that I carry my helmet in was filled with snow xD
