    cant take winter anymore

    81 days left till we hit the beach, cant take this winter anymore. Sure seems as if time has stopped. Here in Michigan at 758 a.m. it is 3 below 0 with a wind chill of 35 below and dropping. 2 ft of snow on the ground . Just saw Arubas temp and its 81. Oh how I wish the only white stuff I see is sand

    North Central Wisconsin @ 8:00 AM, temp -24F, wind chill -50F. Last evening I made sure our bird feeders were full. Thinking I'll need to venture out and refill during the day!

    i know that no one experienceing the cold and miserable weather wants to hear about weather in tampa bay........but here goes anyway..........
    we are tonight, expecting our first freeze since last winter.
    every available towel and blanket are out wrapped around our plants.......hibiscus, crown of thorns, gerbera daisies, impatiens and begonias.

    does it seem the cold and the snow/ice are worse this winter....earlier on...than last?

    where are YOU and how cold is it and do you have snow or ice on the ground?

    currently in tampa bay area..........62 degrees, by this time tomorrow it is supposed to be 30

    Kids have already had school cancelled tomorrow. Lots of kids here do not have heavy winter coats.

    Northern Virginia, Dc suburbs - schools are closing tomorrow because of the cold and we don't even have snow. It's supposed to get down to 7 F with wind chills -14. We are not used to that here. This morning it was 40 F. Weather seems crazy this year.
    Not sure when, but we will be back
