one word..."wow"

April said...

Tell the snow to go away already! Man, can't the snow read a calendar?!?

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

I agree with what dru said.

That does not look very springy!!

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Dru and NYC - no, it's not. SIGH. And we're supposed to get anywhere between 4 and 12 inches overnight.

And April, I think it can't. It's very frustrating.

One of our local DJs said she was going to have a "throwdown with Mother Nature" lol.

Goofball said...

looks like the Ardennes in Belgium. Snow is also their Spring welcome gift.

I only saw melting snow so far...so I actually hope for a white Easter. just for once, why not. If it doesn't last long.

Marianne Arkins said...

Dear heavens... please, please, please tell me that's not coming my way.

I'm so sorry.

Ugh.

Happy "spring".

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Well, Goofball, you can have it! ;-)

Marianne, you'll be happy to know it's not for a change. It's supposed to peter out before getting much farther East.

anno said...

Same story here. Unfortunately. Just goes with everything else going on this week...

cablegirl said...

Oh yeah, I feel your pain. I remember one year in Boston we had an early spring until April 1st. April Fools! Here, have a 5 foot drift.

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Oh, Anno, I wish I could send you on a nice, Mediterranean vacation.

Yes, CG, we've had times like that. I remember the year I moved to MI, I had been living in TN just before and everything was beautiful and springlike, and I took the Greyhound up on Mar. 28th and we arrived in a blizzard. And hey, today is only Mar. 21st! ;-)

Sandy C. said...

Good grief! Will this winter ever end? We're having a touch of that too with 40 mph winds :(
Hope some Spring-like weather will show up soon!

glamah16 said...

You can say the same for Chicago.

Thalia's Child said...

We've got the same problem here - except we still had more snow left. (About three feet still) - then suddenly snow and there's 4 feet.

Doesn't nature know I want to go on Vacation on monday?

Karen MEG said...

Crazy, it's supposed to be spring!
Bloghoppin'

Ben said...

We are also supposed to get more snow here tonight. But you guys up north always get the best part of it. I know I am going to regret this when I am melting with the summer heat, but.. I am ready for warmer weather :-/

Mariposa said...

Oh, dear snow, you're supposed to be gone already! :D

citizen jane said...

Oh man. That's crazy.

Says the girl from Florida... y'all are more than welcome to come for a visit. Let's just say the weather here = markedly different right now.

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Sandy, I heard about your winds from my mom in NYC - I guess they're having the same.

Sorry to hear that, Coco!

Oh, Ella, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope the roads are nice and clear for you on Monday!

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Yes, KarenMeg, emphasis on the word supposed

Boy, Ben, me, TOO! And I'm really not a summer person - I prefer Spring and Fall, but right now - warmth. Please.

Mariposa, yup... and this is why I said I needed that vacation when I saw your Music Monday video with everyone so happy on beaches! ;-)

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Citizen Jane - Ya mean it?? Packing my bags right now! ;-)

Lilacspecs said...

Nature is a cruel trickster. We've been having record high temperatures here in Belgium since the beginning of February, now come the end of March it's dropped 10 degrees and started hailing every other day.

Meh!

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Well, Lilac, maybe you'll find some beautiful weather in Pittsburgh next week!

Jenny said...

I'm officially jealous. We never get snow where I live. If we do it's gone by afternoon or sooner.

Greg said...

Same story in Minnesota.

Rebecca said...

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! I am so ready for spring-this time of year any bad weather is always hard to deal with-stay warm!

BusyDad said...

Um... considering you saw a pic of my son in shorts taken yesterday, I'm just going to wave hi and move on before you throw a mixing bowl at me or something...

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Jenny - I like snow. I really do. I just want spring to get here!

Greg - so I've heard. Hope it clears up SOON.

Thanks, Rebecca, and I so plan on embracing warmer weather as soon as it gets here!

No, Jim, it would a snow shovel ;-) And the pics of Fury were adorable!

Shan said...

Oh yuck. Think I caught wind that we're in for more snow too. I am so over this winter.

Carol said...

WOW! In Seattle we spent the day planting spring flowers!

Carol

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Oh, Shan, I hope your weather reports were wrong!

Carol, thanks for sharing ;-P. Actually, though, for those of you in Seattle - enjoy your sunny days!

La delirante said...

Cool pics :) Thanks for sharing.

Have a great week! and good luck with your trip :)

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Thanks, Wendy! I wish we were in warm, sunny Malta!

Núria said...

Oooohhhh how beautiful! You are so lucky to have that view from your house♥ Please show us more in spring :D

Grimm said...

Good to see it ain't just us Ohioans that get the snow dumped on us this year.

Good grief that looks ugly.

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Thanks, Nuria - I'll definitely post more. ;-)

Grimm, yes, and I was totally feeling your pain in your posts about shoveling!
