I Don't Do Winter!!!

I think this may be one of the hardest Winter in a long time.  We have been hit with multiple snow storms and below zero weather this year and I know my blogging buddies in the South have been hit with cold weather too.   I am so over Winter!!  :-)  This little girl is actually a fountain with a pond full of goldfish.  I really don't think my fish are still living under all that snow and ice..:-(    The guy at the store said they would hibernate in the Winter but I have a feeling after all the below zero weather that's not going to happen, so I guess I'll be back at the pet store come Spring and warmer weather because I really did enjoy them!!

This is a lake right by my work.  See all those little black spots in the middle, those are geese and that's not even half of what is usually there.  I felt so sorry for them everyday I drove to work.  They sit in a huddle all around that ice hole in the -10 below weather which at times felt like was bitter and I don't know how they survive.   So how's everyone doing in this cold Winter of 2014?  Are you enjoying this time indoors or are you ready for Spring?  I heard today that we might be hit with a giant storm next week!!  NOOOOOOOOOOO...........LOL   If that happens you might see me like Jack Nicholson in The Shining!!  :-)   Stay warm and safe everyone!!!   And say a prayer Spring comes early!!

It's so hard for me to believe how you all survive in that weather, Joan. Perhaps you get used to it? Yes, it's been pretty cold here also, but not anything of course like you guys have. Spring will not come too soon for any of us. :)

It's been a rough one this year, for sure! But I see daffodil blades peeking through the mulch in our flowerbeds, so it gives me hope that spring is around the corner.
