OK, Enough already!!

For some reason, we are all tired of winter around here.

I think when the 9 year olds start saying they can't wait for spring, we have maybe had enough snow for one year???
I don't know for sure, but when the piles of snow are higher than any tractor on the farm, when I can't see my house from the milking parlor, and when the swingset is almost completely covered, MAYBE we have had enough?
We are in the midst of yet another famous Wisconsin snow storm, and it could move into the blizzard category by evening if the winds pick up and start blowing the last 8 inches we just got this morning.
Of course, it couldn't just snow, it had to rain first, so we have a really nice layer of ice underneath the new snow, which is always so much fun to deal with on the roads.
Now, we love Wisconsin, we love snow, we love the changing seasons, but we have had snow on the ground since before Thanksgiving. It is now 3 months since that time, and we have no end in sight yet.
You know the old saying? If you don't like the weather, stick around a few hours, it will change-well, tomorrow we go back to sub-zero-YUCK!!!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend, and is warm and safe!

Whew! Thanks for the reminders! As a Wisconsin native now living in the desert, I can't help wanting to move back...but then again, there is WINTER! Thanks for the reality check. Ha ha!
