MAKE. IT. STOP!

I felt so productive yesterday. Cleaned out over half the perennial beds, saw lots of green growing things poking their little leaves out. This morning, though, the sky was overcast. I left for work around 10:30ish to start seeing patients around 12:00. There were a few little 'flurries'....I wouldn't even acknowledge it as snow.
Sadly though, 5 hours and 16 patients later...this is what I saw when I left the office......

This is my truck...that I had to dig out.....


And this is my garden...you saw the pics yesterday...see where I left the rake and the fertilizer watering can...


uh huh...I am SO OVER winter. I just want to cry.

I want to lock myself in a dark room and eat Oreos. This is awful. :(
Here's hoping it melts soon.

Deep breath, cuppa tea, knit...and wait for REAL spring.

Bea said...

So sorry. I hope it melts soon and all the spring that had popped up is still alright.

Della said...

Oh Ugh! I almost cried For you when I saw the pictures! I have a sister up in Nome... wonder if they're seeing any green...
Hope it doesn't last!

We got some here in MinneSNOWta, too. 6 months of winter, is enough already! I only had a few inches but some places west of here had up to 18" which is crazy...

ROFL! You guys really got dumped on. Down here we only got maybe 6 or more inches. But the snow did bring forth some good natured mother/daughter bonding time. Princess up in Anchorage had to make a better snowman than her little sister and I.

And I was going to work in my garden today! My beds are still frozen and covered w/winter snow.

oooh Lisa - way to piss you off!!!

Kinda interesting though, if you're looking from an Australian perspective. BUt sigh, also soul destroying in a gardening kinda way.

Love the forest canopy knit-up, and am intrigued by the two socks at once idea - shall I send you my husband's sock yarn? ;P Kidding!

Its turning autumnal here, only 20C and 12-ish at night, with drizzles of rain.

We're putting our clothes on!

This is so wrong on so many levels. I think Holly Jo has the right idea - hibernating (with oreos) sounds like a grand plan. Ugg - when is spring going to stay?

Milly said...

That is incredible! Well, I hope it goes away soon for you and you get your spring back.

Libby said...

I'm sorry Lisa. We are having that kind of weather here in Michigan.

It'll be over soon and I"m keeping my fingers crossed for ya.

Hey, ya know what-honey, you ARE the frozen chosen. DH and I were considering vacation destinations. Vacation destinations should never be places where you have permanent ass prints at the county court house. Soooo-NAH. (I mean burough, but that just doesn't sound right)

ANY WAY-WE WANNA SEE prom pictures.

I am quickly getting over Ravelry. Not. Every. One. is. nice. Cuz my bitchdar ain't really sensitive, and if I think someone is a conversation killer, they are.

Oy! You blink and snow happens. Why oh why couldn't it have happened BEFORE you did all that work? Sorry to hear about this. However I must say that your pics look pretty to me, but then I hardly ever get to see snow here in CA.
