07 Mar 7 on 7 That Damn Groundhog is Confused
Honestly, what the hell is wrong with that rodent.
Winter should be over some time around July, apparently
No matter. I bought new boots and a new winter coat and headed off to Quebec with my officemates for a weekend of fun in the
When the going gets cold,
(that’s a myth … we sit in a corner and weep)
We stayed at a beautiful resort in the Laurentides and it was postcard perfect with fresh snow blanketing most of the Province.
I could have just stayed in my gorgeous room for the weekend and been perfectly content watching the falling snow outside my window.
Perfectly content, and WARM.
It was a fun weekend, but that “fresh” snow that I mentioned ended up causing havoc everywhere and flights were cancelled all over Canada and the US. I spent an extra night in a not quite as nice room beside the airport, but eventually made my way home, none the worse for wear.
And apparently, we had gotten a bit of snow at home too.
It’s been a crazy month though, and all of that snow quickly gave way to warmer temps.
(which also gave way to flooding and chaos, but whatever … warmth!)
Sunshine, sweet sunshine.
And then, one morning last week, I discovered I had my OWN personal Groundhog and that he too is as dumb as his weather-predicting cousins.
Or is he.
The snow is gone. The other day I didn’t have to wear a coat. The snow is GONE.
As I type this though, it’s beginning to snow.
And that concludes your February Weather Update (what a snorefest – honestly, are you even still awake? my deepest apologies for this half-ass post). Tara is up next in our photo circle, so go pay her a visit and tell her I said hi. She’s infinitely more interesting than this, I promise, AND extremely talented.

i so enjoy the quiet of the sensory moments you’ve captured here — the flicker of the fire from the vantage of cozy; the frost covered trees outside the window — love!

Ha! Me too! This new (old) house doesn’t have AC.

Lovely photos and love the capture of Backyard Bob. Hoping that the snow fall is brief and that the warm days return quickly.
