Good Morning! You know the saying about March? "In like a lion out like a lamb"? Well, I guess that doesn't apply to North Idaho!! It is snowing here again this morning. They are predicting 1 to 3 inches in the valleys and 4 to 8 inches in the mountains!! Holy Crapola. Spring appears to be hiding under a layer of snow. However, Frank spoke kindly to me this morning, showing a dip in my numbers which was welcome. I thought I was going to have lunch out with my hubby but since it is snowing it is likely he'll have to work tonight ... so that changes our plans. So ... I'll tackle the piles of paper in my office and see what progress I can make!! Mom and I have been perusing a book titled "Eat this, Not that!" We are learning a lot about calorie dense food choices ... it is rather entertaining. I hope everyone has a good day today ... and that someone out there has some SUNSHINE!!!!

I keep waiting for the lamb too. We had tornadoes earlier this month, and horrible fluctuations in temps all month long. We had a blizzard Friday and Saturday and yesterday we had a horrible thunderstorm with hail. The sun is shining but it is still cold. I am ready for warm weather to come and stay for a while. Well sounds like you will have a busy day. What does your husband do that he will have to work due to the snow? Have a Wonderful Day and take a breath today.

Feel for you but we do have Sunshine and I just got back from 1hr 15 min Mountain Bike ride in the MUD. For some strange reason I love riding in the mud. Its like being a little kid again. Hope your weather breaks soon, and when its in the low 80's there during August and and I am at 103 you can get me back on the weather front.

Hubby works for the State Transportation Dept. which means he plows the snow off the state highways during the winter!! MUD ... we have that too ... but currently it is frozen beneath a layer of snow!! LOL!! Actually your bike ride in the mud does sound like fun ... reminds me of making mud pies as a kid!!

Congrats on your numbers! Hope you thaw out soon! I think the idea of snow sounds wonderful - I'm from up north but have been in Florida for 15 years now. Always miss what you don't have, right? Bundle up and enjoy the fire - I'm looking at lots of piles of paper too!

No sunshine here yet. Frank was a good "guy" today. I feel for you still having snow, this has been a long hard winter for everyone. I have a light box that I use every morning when I am getting ready. I need sunlight and that really helps me mentally.

I don't feel so bad about the snow anymore. I talked to someone who has family elsewhere in Idaho and they received 22 new inches of snow this last storm!!! So ... no more complaining ... just hopeful looking forward to warmer temps and more sunshine!!

I'm the opposite of most of the people who commented. We have too much sun and humidity where I live (Deep South Texas). If I could package it up and send it to you guys, believe me, I would. We don't really have a "separation" in seasons here. Shoot, we're cold when it hits 60 degrees. LOL

I hear ya!!! Be careful what we complain about!! I've lived where there are virtually no seasons before ... I prefer the seasons even if I do tire of winter about this time of year!! I'd send you some snow if I could1!!
