Winter in New York

So late last night/early this morning we had our 5th storm of the season roll through since the December 26th blizzard. Schools on our area are closed. My office building had a delayed opening. Matt is working from home because the bulk of the storm came in right before rush hour and he never would have made it to the office for his numerous am conference calls.

Now don't get me wrong - I like getting bundled up, I like being able to use our fireplace, I like being snowed-in every once in a while. But this is ridiculous! I am so ready for winter to be done. The days seems to drag on though and every morning I seem to see another snow event listed on the Pix11 5-day weather forecast. It's gloomy out. The snow piles aren't melting because the thermostat doesn't get much past 30 these days. Parking is limited everywhere you go because of it.

Another minus to this weather is lugging around a toddler while 6 and a half months pregnant. Not fun. Especially when that toddler gets all squiggly.

And the fun and excitement of a snow-day wears thin when you get one every week. It's just not fun anymore.

So spring - if you can here me, if you read my blog - please please please arrive early!! Don't let those dang groundhogs/woodchucks/whatever see their stupid shadows next month. Kick old man winter's butt!!!

We love the snow Gina, but I am ready for a little warmth right now. All the coats, hats and stuff can be much. I think there is more next week. Stay cozy my friend!

I couldn't agree more! We live in CT and have gotten the same snow storms. The snow is taller than my little guy, and since it's coated with a sheet of ice, we can't even enjoy it! Stay warm!
