Ugh. Winter. AGAIN.


Yes, Edmonton now has a blanket of snow once more.


And, as usual, the roads are hazardous.


No one in their right mind likes winter.


When laying in supplies for blizzards
don't forget the Storm Chips 
along with the other necessities of life.


Soon you'll wear off all those calories 
digging out your driveway and car.


And here's the worst part --



There is only one advantage to cold weather.


Oh, who am I kidding? 
THIS is how I'll look in reality!



Time to follow the 
only possible course of action 
to get through this --

When I was younger I loved winter. These days, though I still appreciate some aspects of it, I find the season difficult to deal with and I long for spring. Here in New York we have a ways to go before it hits. Hopefully it will be a mild one.

Laurie said...

Yup, it’s here whether we like it or not, that spilled coffee one almost made me choke on my tea, they’re all excellent!

jaz@octoberfarm said...

i never said i was in my right mind. I LOVE IT! it's 34 here this morning and i have all of my doors and windows open. i am in my element!

Martha said...

The last one! HAHAHA Yes, definitely would participate in that :) I'm just not ready for the snow!!!

Rosemary said...

Poor you.

Travel said...

Snow, the novelty wears off after a day or so, then it is just cold and inconvenient.

The Captain said...

Snow? Wow! If we get snow it's usually not until January and then it's rarely anything except a 24 hour panic. Makes me appreciate the rain even more. Stay warm!

anne marie in philly said...

sorry to hear winter has arrived in the great white north. the cat paws pix is the best.

Mistress Maddie said...

SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO offense sister but keep it. We're suppose to have a mild winter here again.

Parnassus said...

Hello Debra, I recall winter only too well. I lived in the "snow belt" part of norther Ohio, which meant that when the rest of the city got a light dusting or nothing at all, we were buried under several feet of snow. The worst part was dealing with the people who kept saying "Aren't the lacy trees pretty!" when you've just come back in after an hour of shoveling the driveway.

The dog in the hat is killing!!!

We almost ... ALMOST ... had to turn on the AC yesterday!

DVArtist said...

I am so glad I don't live in snow country anymore. These are nice reminders why. LOL

Marie Smith said...

We are near zero today minus the snow. Not for long though. Ugh!

Leanna said...

BWAAAAHAHAAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAAA!!
These are so great! I love them and I'm stealing the pink puppy meme.

Martha said...

You make me so glad I live in Florida lol!

Catsngrams said...

Thanks for the laughs I needed them. Our snow has stayed in the mountains cause we have it trained. LOL

Seriously? It's still October. But we are due for a winter "preview" in New Mexico tonight into Tuesday (coming in from Canada down the Pacific coast and then a sharp hook upward into New Mexico). Snow up to 6 inches predicted for our area and temps in the 20's (F). We'll likely be in shorts and t-shirts a week later.

Bob Johns said...

Oh man they keep saying we could see flurries today not here for it! Keep that snow up North.

Liz Hinds said...

You've got snow?! I'm still in my shorts!

Love the oil painting and the difference between how youngsters dress and we dress!

Magaly Guerrero said...

We haven't had our first frost yet. We might have two or three weeks to go. And as always, I am not looking forward to it.

CraveCute said...

LOL! My feelings exactly! It's the same here in Minnesota. After this crappy year we all deserved another month of nice weather! But no 2020 has to carry on as the biggest *&%*/# ever!

Moving with Mitchell said...

Oh, poor you! I sure don't miss that. It looks so beautiful to me when you share the pictures... because we're experiencing our first burst of winter with sunshine and temps in the mid 60s! The cutest "nope" is hilarious, and I'm a sucker for high-brow poetry.

Tundra Bunny said...

Our Summer Tires Club set a new record of 19 collisions in one afternoon last week... what a bunch of maroons! Their winter driving technique never seems to evolve from bald summer tires and, "It's icy and snowing hard, let's drive faster!!"

I want a pink knitted Fraggle hat too, if only to freak out the Summer Tires Club as I drive by in my 4WD SUV with winter tires! LOL!

Mike said...

Living in St. Louis, we are on the edge of the 'global warming not much snow' line. We used to get snow and it would stick around for weeks. Now, even if we get 4 or 5 inches, it's gone in a couple of days. Sometimes I don't bother shoveling the driveway because I know it will melt. I just stay in for a couple of days.

Ur-spo said...

after 6-7 months of ardent temperatures we can finally open the windows and turn off the AC
rumors have it we drop to 10C at night this week !!!

pam nash said...

I'd be happy to send you some of our summer if you'd send some of your cold. I'm really tired of summer now.

Joanne Noragon said...

Carry on, 2020;

peppylady (Dora) said...

I had cousin who use to live in Fort McMurry but moved a bit south, not sure where. It was cold here in North Idaho woke up to 12 (11-)

Debby said...

Snow???!!! Oh my dear woman, you have my sympathies. And here I am down here whining because it is gray, drizzling and in the 40s!

Kirk said...

Where I am we went from 70s on Friday to 40s on Saturday, and I found that traumatizing enough WITHOUT the snow, so I feel for you.

baili said...

haha
each one made me laugh dear Debra

i can imagine how extra cold weathers annoys you
i loved winter always i have always but now health issues restrain my longing for winter but i still love the charm of not much harsh winters of our's :)

well hibernation has it's own positive attractions :)

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

I can't believe you guys got snow before Halloween!
It's supposed to be mild here. But it's Chicago, so anything can happen. I'm not looking forward to winter. I'm literally that kitty.

XOXO

Hena Tayeb said...

Ugh.. I know. It's starting to get chilly here too.. but no snow yet..
You get a lot more snow and cold then we do..

The Blog Fodder said...

Loe the "Nope" and dressing for winter - that's me.
If you love winter you have never had cattle.

This N That said...

Lucky you..It may be awhile before we get it...usually!Love the "nope"..says it all.....and the "snow predicted..I can't believe that people let themselves get so low on that stuff..It's rare these days that we are snowed in..Maybe one day..ENjoy your week..

Susan said...

I'm laughing now....it will be a different story when it reaches us down here.

Lady M said...

We've got snow and a high today of 17 degrees Fahrenheit so I hear you Debra. However by Friday and Saturday, we will be back to fall weather again.

e said...

We've got fresh snow on the mountains but it hasn't troubled us in the valley yet. It's cold though; it dropped down into the upper 20s last night (-2c). I'm all bundled up like that sensible duck. Love the memes, love the NOPE.
Thanks for the cheer, despite the ass-biting weather!

Bea said...

Come down for a visit and thaw out! ;)

Susan Kane said...

Winter here in California is much the same as our summer, except for some bits of rain. As long as the house is heated, and my outer wear is all ready, I'll be fine.

Guillaume said...

My parents told me it is snowing in their part of the world. I am waiting for the pictures.

JACKIESUE said...

was 51 today...loving it..

G. B. Miller said...

Probably won't see snow until the 1st of the year here (knock on linoleum) and fortunately for me, when it does come I won't need my bad-ass winter driving skills as much, 'cause I'll be happily retired by then, so my venturing out will be curtailed by 65%.

Still got some kick-ass pics from storms gone by, so if I ever long for snow, I can just look at those. :D

Busy Bee Suz said...

But it looks so pretty. (from the comfort of my warm house!)
Bee safe out there!!

Rommy said...

Still haven't had snow, or even first frost here. But it's definitely darker and some days require sweaters.

Barbara said...

My favorite was cancel that order. I actually pulled out a pair on long pants today but it is supposed to be back in the 80s next week.

Fundy Blue said...

I'll take that pink outfit, Debra! I'm getting so depressed looking at my very long white roots, and it looks like it will be a long time before I can go to a hair stylist. Nope is priceless!

Jenn said...

That was pre winter....I am liking this week so far!!
