I dig winter!

We house-sat in the country for friends of ours this past weekend and got hit with a foot and a 1/2 of snow. Being the prepared snow-belters-for-4-days, we were joyful for these reasons and more:
1. We brought 2 days worth of food with us should we be stuck inside and unable to go to the local bar/restaurant with the best burgers ever due to the weather.
2. We were house-sitting for someone who has an amazing Adirondack-style lodge home and a kick-ass plowing service.
3. We had beer and satellite TV.
4. We had lots of movies to watch (we rented 3 and our friends had a bunch that we hadn't seen, as well).
5. We had a fireplace and kept a fire going in it for 6-7 hours both Sat. and Sun.

And just think: January is a week from being over, and winter only really just hit. February and March are supposed to be bad, but then it's spring for chrissakes!

giddy from inhaling too much smoke from the fire perhaps,

Re: I dig winter!

Your giddiness is refreshing. It reminds me a lot of the big smile on Frosty the Snowman's face when he sees that the snow-blower is on its way.

Me? I'm just freezin' to death.

You never miss an opportunity to throw some sexual innuendo in there, do you? I have to admit, though, that was good.


Re: I dig the Portland rain

This is EXACTLY why I left upstate New York. A foot and a half of snow. I havn't seen that much snow in the seven years I have lived here combined. Not even a foot. Lots of rain and something else as well. Freezing rain. We just got an ice storm on the 15th and CBS prempted the Syracuse-Providence game to tell us that it was icy outside. For six hours. Honestly, you guys would get a kick out of how this town reacts to snow and ice. They had six reporters all over town telling us that there was, indeed, ice on the ground. As if we couldn't look outside and see that. The best part, all the local networks were talking about it as if they had an exclusive scoop. It was annoying to say the least.


Re: Re: I dig the Portland rain

Sounds like last week's story of the Raleigh, NC area, where they got an inch of snow and a little ice, panicked, sent everyone home and had traffic tie-ups for hours. The local meteorologists are being eviscerated for not knowing about the impending addition of ice to the weather picture.

Is it ok for me to be cold in the sunshine state?

Re: Re: Re: Re: I dig the Portland rain

It is really funny how you get conditiond to the weather. A couple of weeks ago, it was 27 here and I thought it was freezing. If I was in New York, I would have considered it warm for that time of year. What is cold for you Sweet Meat, 60?


Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: I dig the Portland rain

For the first time in my life since I started running intermittently in 1997, I've decided to keep running outdoors through the winter. Running in 3 degrees isn't as bad as I would ever have imagined (I actually enjoy it), but having it hit 33 degrees today feels truly balmy by comparison. It was 15 when I ran this morning, and I had to take my neck scarf off of my face due to to heat! Warmth certainly is relative.
