Looking for a silver lining.....

Dear Mother Nature.
Right now, I hate you.
Love Momma

*For the last 4-5 days, it has been around -20 degrees Celsius.  One day it felt like -35.  Do you realize how cold that is?
It is so cold that my boogers froze almost instantly.
*It's so cold that my piece of s^%$ vehicle wont start and hasn't started for almost 4 days.
I am a prisoner in my own home and I am about to lose my effing mind.

*My kids have had indoor recess at school for days which means they are going stir crazy, which means they are driving me to pull my hair out strand by strand.
True story.
I hid in the bathroom for a very long time yesterday pretending that I was experiencing a case of poop soup when really I just wanted to get away from the little shitheads fighting.

*The horses don't want to be outside.
There is bunny poop at every door to the house because I think the poor buggers are trying to break into the house during the night.
The cat{s} are nestled in the hay to keep themselves warm.
And I have a cough.

*The silver lining to this piece of crap weather???
Its so cold that Jersey the dog doesn't even want to run away.
And we can have an ice rink on our back field.

Dear Mother Nature
Maybe "hate" is a strong word.
I guess you're OK..
Love Momma

We can all hope that spring will come soon. I live in texas, and it has even been cold here. Tires of cold! Loved your shots though and the snow is beautiful.

My daughter was having the same problem with her car up at college, she goes to school in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We had to get a new battery when she was home for Christmas, even that one was only 1-1/2 years old.

I about swallowed my tongue when I read that your kids are still going to school. We were *just* below freezing here and had a flurry or two (which hasn't happened in at least 3 years) and the entire city was shut down. Highways, stores, EVERYTHING. You would have laughed your head off.

Lolli said...

I feel almost the same way...and we haven't had quite as much snow or cold weather (if you call 18 degree highs not so cold). I am tired of it!
