March 19, 2011 The snow piles have gone a little!!

What a difference in Marches from last year to this year. I am so sick of seeing big piles of snow that aren't really melting.  And we get more snow and cold East, SE, ESE, NE winds every day. The streets, lanes, and sidewalks are that nightmare combo of ice, slush, slush sink holes, and yucky muck.  I took Duffy for a walk yesterday evening and what a mess he was at the end of it!! And that was with me hauling him from trotting through the worse of the muck.  So we aren't going for walk until the end of April! Hahahahahaha!! I'm not kidding!! I will however start laying paths through the snow in the yard so he can run around!!!  We are having freezing drizzzle right now, just to add to the fun. Does it sound like I'm SICK of this winter????????

Okay, next year you have to come and spend some time with us...you'll be going back to Canada saying, "I'm so sick of all that heat and sun!" LOL

I'm so happy we're past March 20th...the UV index was only 8 today. Woo hoo! Fall is on its way, even though you can't tell by the temps...it was 32C today and is going to be 36C by Thursday...

I was telling Dave that I'm moving to Australia--maybe not Perth, a little too hot!! But Melbourne or Adelaide!! Then I have been reading about all the horrible stuff that gets done to an animal if one is bringing it into Australia--and there doesn't seem to be any way around it--so I guess it will have to be for a visit only!!! I couldn't do that to Duffy!

I notice the temps over night are a little cooler, so that helps with the heat.

It's horrific. Crazy. You are a pioneer.

I don't walk my boys at night all winter long, I told them I am too old to go out in the cold & snow :))

I don't walk Duffy at night at any time of the year, as this isn't a safe neighborhood for that!! But the snow and cold is fine--good snow pack, he stays clean, I'm happy!! LOL!! It's now with the on and off melting that I hate--mostly off for the past couple of days amd more snow falling!! YUCK!!

Yeah, I wouldn't bring a pet into Australia either...even the time they spend in quarantine is tough on them...

Melbourne is lovely...a lot more temperate and less extreme...Victoria even gets snow in winter and has ski resorts! If K. had the same employment options as here, we'd probably head over there...but the mines are in WA, so that's where we are for now. Plus, I'm not packing for another few years!!!! Aaaaargh!

It has been cooler at night...I think it got to under 20C here...this morning felt a little cooler when I opened the patio door, so fall's on the way...down to highs of 30C and lows in the mid teens next week...better get my woolies out. LOL.
