Because, you know, it's really my choice to live in Michigan.

That said, yes, it wears on you after a while.

This is just brilliant:

Dude.... I wanna laugh, but I seriously get what he's saying.

Sorry hon... It will be gone. I promise... Like... May? ;)

Hah, truth is, even though Feb/March can be awful, there are generally more "breaks," where temps get up above freezing, so really, things are getting better already. This week is a little brutal, though.

That said, this had me laughing out loud at work several times....it's just so spot on.

The part that really made me laugh was the sullen people on the bus.

here, In Portland... (where we're very strange) people get SO EXCITED about snow and the buses are hilarious because everyone is talking to everyone else when it first starts snowing and it's a BIG ol" PARTY!! but then, a day later... and you've been LATE to everything and can't dig your car out? Everyone is Mr. GrumpyPants!
Of course, this year... nothing. But that's how it's been in the past.

There are 2 parts that really got me. One was the watermain break thing. Last winter, with the really brutal temps we got for so long, the frost line went much deeper than normal, and it seems like every few days there was another massive watermain break downtown. The car frozen in place just...yeah, haha.

And then the very next line about the frozen gate. Shall I mention how many times I've salted/chipped the gate to the dog yard free this year? *cries*

The water main thing was so horrible! I never imagined horror such as this until today

Max respect. Please don't die

Haa. I can tell you exactly what happened there. Someone was a dumbass and decided to try to drive through standing water. Their car stalled, and everything froze before they could get a tow. Don't be a dumbass, and you'll be ok ;-)

Seriously, the water main thing usually doesn't happen that often. They bury the pipes below the point where the ground (usually) freezes.

That was very well done. I could not live in snow like that. I get tired of it around here when it lasts a whole week. :-)

As long as your city has decent infrastructure, it's honestly not that bad. Cities that have less capability of dealing with snow, well, it's a lot worse there. But it just wears on you. Scraping off the car AGAIN. Salting the driveway AGAIN.

I could not do it. All of the snow management is too much. Come on spring!

I'm just grateful I don't live in the northeast.

hahaa I love it!
This Feb so far has been cruel but to me the cruelest month is March --- soooo close (spring) but soo far away!

I really liked the tomatoes and patio thing. Those are seriously the things I fantasize about this time of year. It's like they wrote this from my brain :-)

Yes exactly! I was smiling sooo much at those tomatoes!!!

I'm currently sending my sympathies to the midwest and New England, while not discussing weather here. (Though drought is still bad.)

The drought really scares me.

But that said, the photographs my friends from the west coast post (green grass, warm enough for dogs to swim!) make me envious.

And I'm also grateful to only be under ~2 feet of snow rather than the 6+ feet New England has at the moment, ugh.

You guys have had a rough few years. Hang in three.
