Dear Old Man Winter,
Not to be disrespectful to an elder but…please go away. Your sweet sister, Spring was here earlier this week with her lovely sunshine and warm temps breathing new life into a tired brown landscape, waking up tender blooms and even more tired uprights and pups sick of your constant returns to remind us how much we despise your all-to-long-of-a presence. After 87 visits to us over the past 6 weeks, we beg you to go gently into the night
though immediately would be better and leave us the hell alone until next year. And take that stupid groundhog with you. You are both on the short list right now. Him for toying with us saying we’d have an early Spring and you for repeated arrivals as an unannounced guest much like Randy Quaid as Cousin Eddie from the movie, Christmas Vacation who drinks all the beer and generally makes the house look like a FEMA disaster zone. We’re done with both of you. We long for those 60 and 70 degree days with sunshine, blue skies, and soft breezes where she coaxed pretty tulips and perfectly scented lilacs to dazzle us. You, your snow mixed with a chilling rain and your lousy 30 degree temperatures with limited visibility can go away now and stop tormenting us. Please!
Two tormented souls shivering in Denver, one of whom needs to pee badly and won’t do it in the chilly rain/snow nonsense you keep tossing at us.
Hope wherever you are that you are enjoying a real Spring that coincidently matches with the calendar.
Live, love, bark! <3

Amen! We woke up to snow this morning!
Awk! At least the snow has stayed up in the mountains lately. Which is where it can live all year as far as I’m concerned. 😉
HHmm, guess I can’t complain (too much) living at 7,000 ft comes with some “fun” weather!! 🙂
How well I know that. My daughter used to live at 7600 ft. I swear I couldn’t get up her Mt. Everest driveway over 6 months a year!
LOL, it CAN be a challenge sometimes, but the air is SO clean up here!! 🙂
True. That happens when there’s no oxygen! LOL
LOL, so THAT’s what I can’t think straight, huh! Have a WOOF-tastic holiday weekend!
Oh…what I wouldn’t give for some nice, cold weather. Here we are roasting and baking and burning in the summer heat 😩😩😩
Yeah, we always want what someone else has-human nature I guess. Try to stay cool.
Haha yes, that about sums it up. Between morning snow flurries and afternoon heatwaves here on the East Coast, at this point I have no idea what to expect on a daily basis anymore.
Calendars seem to be useless for figuring out what’s what!
Monika, if you hadn’t qualified that last sentence I could have ticked the box. We are having a wonderful Spring/Summer here, which might explain why it’s still snowing there. It’s May and I’m sitting here at night in short sleeves.
Surely, the seasons will get themselves sorted out soon, although something tells me, we won’t be so lucky.
Weather seems universally confused anymore with extremes being the new norm. *sigh* ღ
Yes, I agree. Not good at all. Looks like the future is already here. xx Ro
We’re having roller coaster weather here too. Luckily no snow but we were spoiled with a few weeks of gorgeous weather and now we’ve had 5 straight days of rain and raw temperatures. It’s getting depressing.
5 straight days of rain/snow mix and this morning there’s a strange colored sky-blue! It’s so rare the sun doesn’t shine here so we’re definitely doing the happy dance. Hope the nice weather moves your way soon though I expect the boys are enjoying the cold.
Major LOL. Hope sunshine finds you soon; Sam can’t hold it forever!
But he’s sure trying!
We have the opposite here. It’s supposed to be leading into winter but late summer wont let go. Days are are still warm and sunny and whilst that might seem ideal, it’s not if you are a farmer trying to get crops planted and there is no rain. The little bit of rain that we have had has barely wet the dry ground
The weather is always opposite what you want…everywhere in the world. ღ
We have a niece and nephew who live in Denver and we heard there was snow! You poor thing!!! Sending warm weather wishes your way! DakotasDen
Oh thank you! Sam’s eyes are turning yellow!
Oh my! That is a looooong winter you are having. I do feel a little sorry for the snowman though. It wasn’t his fault. 😉 Hope it warms up soon. We are in the 80’s here today and hoping for some rain tonight….like lapayor said – to get rid of some pollen, and the fact that we are in a rain deficit for the year. The blackberry’s are blooming, so that means we will probably have one more cold snap and then be done with it this year, I hope. (We call it blackberry winter here in E. TN.)
We had snow last year on Mother’s Day so who knows what’ll happen this year. 😉
We will have wonderful weather . . . all we have to do is make it through a couple more days!

There’s something to be said for litter boxes. Or do like I do and use the bottom of the cage.
We’re looking for newspaper right now!
sorry cold on the East coast too. We don’t have snow, just rain and we’re actually happy it’s here to wash the air and streets of the MASSIVE amounts of pollen this year. It’s hard to breathe from it all so rain away, climate. We are done with tulips and daffodils here. Some iris came up, not mine of course, not enough sun here. The trees all blossomed out last week hence the pollen count.
Maybe you should go paint a spring picture, to give yourself hope. Poor Sam though, Cole went on a pee strike this winter and said he’d hold it for a month. LeeAnna
The cast iron bladders are being tested everywhere. Here’s hoping the pollen problem gets corrected soon in your neck of the words.
hope that last sentence didn’t sound dismissive. I meant “Maybe you COULD paint a spring picture to give yourself hope” And then show it to me. LeeAnna
LOL, any painting would be too helter skelter-ish from all the shivering! 🙂
Well, maybe the groundhog was a southern Texan this time! 😉
Have a great weekend, even in your weather,
That could explain it. 🙂
P.S. Happy weekend to you as well.
….like it says in the bible…..many are cold….but few are frozen……
He is just a melted rainstorm here that won’t quit here!
guess all the people in the US, Europe and Canada must come to India… its almost 40 Degree Celcius here…
Yikes! Perhaps I should embrace Winter’s long grasp.
You got it!!!
We have just got Spring here in S. Ontario… perhaps we’ll send a little your way! 🙂
hahahaha we don’t have the snow but we still have cold, gads it needs to warm up. have a great weekend.
Thanks, you too. Stay warm!
I heary you… it’s cold here too, that’s not normal to stay under a warm blankie one day before may… MAY it be spring tomorrow :O)
Hope springs eternal though I know the past two years we’ve had snow in the first week of May. *sigh* Stay warm.
