** warning possibly offensive language **

I borrowed this from my sister FB page

 

 

 

 

GOTTA LOVE PA:

August 15
Moved to a new home in Pennsylvania . It's so beautiful here.
The lake to the north looks so majestic. I can hardly
wait to see it snow covered. I'm going to love it here.

October 14
Pennsylvania is definitely the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves have turned all the colors and
shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through the park and saw
some deer. They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most
wonderful animals on earth. This must be paradise, I LOVE IT HERE.

November 10
Deer season will start soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such a gorgeous animal, hope it will
snow soon. I love it here. Those red and orange leaves have covered
my yard. Looks like a magnificent multi-colored carpet. HOW BEAUTIFUL.
Raking and cleaning up the yard will be an opportunity for invigorating
exercise in the cool crisp air.

November 15 -
Ah, more leaves and more exercise.

November 18 -
 still more leaves. Guess it's best to
wait until they've all fallen before I rake again.

November 25 -
Finally, all of the trees lost their leaves
and today's final raking it's over for this season. Chiropractor
suggested I use a lawn maintenance service next year. Only four blisters
became infected. Should probably remember to use gloves.

November 30 -
What the H***? Where did all of those leaves come from? A little wind last night and the lawn is covered
again. Oh well, they'll just have to wait until spring.

December 12 -
It snowed last night, FINALLY. Woke up to find
everything blanketed in white. It looks like a postcard. We
went outside and cleaned the snow off the steps and shoveled the
driveway. Had a snowball fight (I won) and when the snowplow came
by and we had to shovel the end of the driveway again. What a beautiful
place. I Love Pennsylvania

December 14 -
More snow last night, I love it. The snowplow
did his trick to the driveway again.
I Love it here.

December 19 -
More snow again last night. Can't get out of the
driveway to get to work. I'm
exhausted from shoveling.  D*** snowplow.

December 22 -
More of that white s*** fell again last night. A s if dealing with the leaves weren't bad enough, now
I've got blisters all over my hands from shoveling, must remember to wear
gloves. I think the snowplow hides around the corner and waits until I'm finished
shoveling the driveway. The a******.

December 25 -
Merry Christmas. More frigging snow. If I ever get
my hands on that s**-of-a-b**** who drives the snowplow. I swear
I'll kill the b*******. Don't know why they don't use more salt on the
roads to melt the d****** ice.

December 27 -
More white s*** last night. Have been inside for
three days except for shoveling out the driveway after that plow goes
through every time. D****** gloves got wet and then froze
on my hands. Doctor said it was just a mild case of
frostbite, disfiguration is probably only temporary. Can't go anywhere,
car is stuck in a mountain of white sh-t. The weatherman says to expect
another 10 inches of the s*** tonight. Do you know how many shovels full
of snow 10 inches is?

December 28 -
The d****** weatherman was wrong. We got 34 inches of that white s***. A t this rate it won't melt 'till summer. The
plow got stuck up the road and the b****** came to the door
and asked to borrow a shovel. After I told him I'd already broken
six of them shoveling all the s*** he pushed into the driveway, I
broke my last one on his d*** head.

January 4 -
Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on the way back I hit a damned deer that
ran in front of my car. Did about $3000 damage d****** beast should
be killed. Wish the hunters had killed them all last November.

May 3 -
Took the car to the garage in town. The thing is rusting out from all the d****** salt they put all
over the roads.
May 10 -
Moved to The Villages in Florida . I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would ever live in that
God-forsaken state of Pennsylvania

 

 

LOL That was great!  But if it was for Calgary, in October the snow would have started falling and the leaves would have frozen onto the tress only to eventually fall off sometime in November on TOP of the snow. And May? there's no guarantee that the snow would be gone, and there would be gravel all over the roads along with the salt - spring is "fix your windshield chips" season.

 

It's warming up here!  Today is supposed to get to 1C!  1C!!  Just a week ago we were having highes in the minus twenties with a windchill, today is 1C, and Sunday is supposed to be +16C. That's a difference in temperature of over 40C in just a week's time!!  LOL Crazy!

 

Our icy potholes will be impressive after this weekend.   ;)

Hmph!

 

First day of Spring - it snowed. Second day - it snowed. Third day - it snowed. Fourth day - more snow. Sigh.  It's warmed up to -8C now. Hubby and the boys couldn't take it anymore so they went to the indoor pool at the rec centre. LOL

 

I wouldn't mind the moisture so much if the ground was thawed out and it could actually soak in... and be useful. I swear I've gone through a gallon of windshield wiper fluid in the last couple of weeks... On the bright side, it's too cold to splash all over the car right now.

 

Only two more months until the last frost....

You must be East of here (the Dakotas). We had snow Sunday night, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. But I'm happy to tell you the SUN is out today!!! And it's supposed to warm up to the 50's by tomorrow!!

 

So hang on, it's coming. (<- Hopeful words from the Land of Eternal Winter.)

Snowed again last night - this is sickening!  We have had snow on the ground continuously since November 1.  However, it has reached -1C this afternoon and the sun is shining.  It could be worse!  ;)

When I put out all the patio furniture this weekend I had no idea there would be snow on the ground this morning.  I guess it will be May before I can go to a Nursery and get flowers.  I love the first snow of the season but am ready to kill with this (hopefully) last snow.
