You know it’s COLD outside when…


     The dogs run out do their business and dash back in, in record time. 

     Long icicles hang from everything. 

     The cars are grumpy when you try to start them. 

     The pond heater is working overtime and the Koi are hanging out directly beneath it. 

     You step outside and your breath freezes in mid-air and drops to the ground with a thud.

     You have no desire to go out even when wearing long underwear, layers of clothing, a very warm coat, gloves, and boots.

     Yep, it is that COLD outside.  When the hell is spring going to get here?

  1. My best recommendation is to wait (yeah, ya hafta wait), till Feb. 2nd and ask Punksamawhatsit Phil. If you ask me, Phil really knows how to sit on the fence on this one. He’ll either tell ya Spring is just around the corner, or there are six more weeks of winter. ‘Course, either way, Spring arrives on Mar. 21st.

    And people wonder why I always look forward to my birthday arriving…it’s right before the first day of sping. 😉

  2. My son’s birthday is the first day of spring (March 20th – I know, it’s not the first -full- day, but I’ll take it!). I call him my spring chicken 🙂
    I know it’s weird, but I love this time of year. The cold, the snow, everything but the wheel well snow pack stalactites.
    As for that little rodent sticking his head out of the ground – he’s so deceptive, really. Either we have 6 more long weeks or winter, or, we have only 6 weeks left until spring.

    Ah, another March baby!

    Sometimes I hate that little rodent…
