It feels like winter has been around our part of the US for centuries. I wish I was exaggerating, but the weekly snow pile ups and 32 or below temperatures have been consistent. Mother Nature has teased us with a day or two of spring here and there, but that quickly vanishes with some more snow and temp dips.
Suffice it to say we’ve all had enough of this.
I had a quick break in early March from the white fluffy, freezing cold stuff when I headed down to North Carolina for some beach time for Alice’s bachelorette weekend. While it did rain and the wind did howl the first night and day we were all there, it didn’t matter much. Saturday came along with sunshine and warmth.
That of course meant spending most of the time outside. Walking on the beach. Sipping wine. Relaxing. And laughing so very much.
Pretty fantastic right? There are more pictures here in case you feel like browsing some more beach/water related photos because yuck snow.
Except we eventually got back to this.
Those are three different weather events that occurred once a week. That last snow picture? Was from this week.
No we don’t live in Canada. None of us DC metro area folks are amused.
As you can see, there has been ample drowning in snow. Everyone, except for my husband who hopes for daily snow days, are wishing for some warmth sans snow. At this point even 40F or 50F degree weather would do.
So you’ll excuse me as I keep dreaming of water, warmth and delightful sunsets.
