Oh, The Weather Outside Is Frightful

My Dad sent me these pictures. He lives about 6 miles down the road from me. Isn't Northwestern PA weather lovely? Friday was a snow day & Mohawk Man got to stay home & irritate his little sister all day long. The snow was so high on Saturday, we literally could not push open the back door. Things are starting to melt off, thankfully. Still, it's only March, so another month of random snow (at the least) and another 2 months of fairly chilly nights (and days).
My nephew gave me a cold. I've been sleeping away most of my weekend & have every intention of sleeping away as much of Monday as I can get away with. I was actually awake for a few hours last night. Sneezing, coughing, sinuses feel like they're filled with 15 pounds of cement, and Hubby says, "Here, read this."
It's an article in the newspaper about how people are going to the emergency room with flu-like symptoms. Only it's not the flu, it's a cold. A really bad, mega, virus-on-steroids cold. You know, sorta like I have? This particular cold is worse than & will last longer than a regular cold. Gee, thanks honey. I really needed to read that right now.

Oh, I feel your pain! I live in Southern PA, and although we didn't get the accumulation you did, it's still pretty deep out there.

March is probably my least favorite month! We're just sitting around waiting for Spring to arrive, and the snow just keeps falling! Soon! Soon! Hang in there!

I hope you feel better soon.

I too am from SouthWestern PA. We are recovering well, but that white stuff keeps coming out of the sky. We had it rather bad a few weeks ago. It all started to melt, then we got more. I am ready for the weather to take a change for the good... some sun and I will even go for brown right now before the green.

Have a good one!
