The winter has stolen my mojo

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

'What winter?' I hear you say, 'It's spring!'

Hah. Not in the UK it isn't. We were promised 10C (50F) this weekend and I made plans to go away, and instead it's absolutely appendage-freezing, and the forecast is down to 2C for Saturday. 2C is 2C above 0C which is freezing in Cs.

So I was planning all kinds of things for the weekend including being very careful about what I eat and taking plenty of exercise and instead it's going to be the brr brr brr again.

I've been making bargains with the weather for weeks now (if it's warm I'll be good all week AND I'll go to the gym at the weekend AND I'll even groom the cats). It has only been warm once, so I haven't been good all week, not for several weeks.

Please please please can someone fix the weather? I'm really tired of itching everywhere because my skin has been dried out by the cold, and I wore my new frock at work today and it looks fab but my coat is so loose that the wind whistles right up it and freezes my doings. All these hikes I'm going on now, all I can think is 'this will look gorgeous in the spring'. It should BE spring, it officially starts today, and it's still SNOWING.

Is that the wind howling round the building, or is it the wailing of a desperate SparkPerson?

    It is most certainly the howling of a frustrated Sparker.

    I think it's time for a new bargain. The fates are laughing either at you or with you.

    I was going away too. I'm seriously thinking of cancelling it and booking a curry and a hangover instead.

    New Hampshire is the same...snow and wind and nary a peek at crocus! Oh well, it can't last forever. Perhaps your weekend will turn out warmer than predicted!! emoticon yeah!

    Here in Kansas, USA, we're having more snow predicted for the weekend. LIke you, I'm howling louder than the wind! I fear we'll move straight from cold to hot, with none of the beautiful spring in-between I love.

But if we couldn't complain about the weather, what on earth would we talk about?!

    I totally understand. I'm in Michigan, and the weather report isn't looking much better for us either. We are actually forecasted to have snow the rest of this week, and may get out of the 20's by mid-week.

    I hear ya! It's bitterly cold here as well, and I'm sick of it! I love where I live, except its weather 3-4 months of the year -- brrrrrr!
