Weather... Enough already!

Perhaps I can speak for bloggers in the US and Canada as well as those in the UK
When I say
 I AM OFFICIALLY SICK OF THIS BLOODY AWFUL WEATHER
Today was a case in point
I had another walk around the village with the dogs, delivering eggs
The only person I saw on a wet and blustery Tuesday was 
Affable despot Jason, who opened his window a crack when I dropped his eggs off at his front door
Looking at the dark skies, he said, with feeling
" see you in May"

  1. Yep, it is pretty awful - I'm going stir crazy, and so is our dog! It was -12F last night but now it's up to a balmy 6F ;) Maybe the two pipes that froze will unfreeze soon.

    1. Oops I lied. Just checked the digital thermometer (it saves the lowest temp) and it was only -9F last night :)

  2. We are the driest part of the country and it's soggy here so I can only imagine how wet it must be in your bit of Wales.
    I wonder if we will get the cold that's in the States. The country would grind to a halt.

  4. Did you have the gale force winds we had at about 4.45am today? it was like we were in a tornado for 10 minutes, it was absolutely crazy and I thought the roof was going to tear off or I was off to Oz to be with Dorothy and the all powerful Oz himself.

    and still crazy people go to the coast to take pictures. they are all nuts

  5. It looks truly awful and I really do feel for you... and I have decided to stop telling everyone about our weather here. It just finally seemed really cruel. Wishing you a break in the brrr!

  7. Amen! It's even frigid cold here in the so-called "sunny south". We started the day at 8 degrees F, and it hasn't warmed up much since then. On the plus side, it's supposed to be in the sixties by the end of the week.

  8. We are more temperate today, as our high got to 18°F/-7°C. The wind blew strongly, though, so i think wind chills were -35°F/-33°C. Nice to see the sun, though, it's been several days of grey, rain, freezing rain, and snow.

    A friend is wanting to make an outdoor ice rink near his office, and i thought i might go see if i could help. Having second thoughts about that now.

  9. It should get above freezing here tomorrow, naturally, that means dismal rain. I looked up last year... it's just more of the same, BUT, I saw daffodils the second week of February, 2013. All is not lost, I just have to 'hang in there' for another six weeks or so.
    Hang in there, John!

  13. It has been bad here in the states. I haven't left the house since Saturday. A record for me. Blah.

  14. Here Here! No more!

  15. I saw Wales on the news last night (or was it the night before? my brain is too addled to remember) with all the flooding and horrible wet weather and driving wind. Stay dry, John, and be thankful you don't live where I live - on Saturday night, with windchill, the temp was -44C.

  16. It's 4 degrees here in Iowa..The kids have had no school this week because of the cold.. Maybe tomorrow...Can't wish winter to be gone because this is Iowa and this is what happens this time of year.. Guess that is why some people move south in the winter..
    Hope your days get warmer for you... ta ta for now from Iowa:)

  17. I'm so whacked, I just called this weather event the "solar plexus," instead of the polar whatever.

  18. We're supposed to be in the 50s tomorrow. Please, God, let it happen.

    Love,

  19. I was happy to be snug as a bug with our Wood Stove keeping us nice and toasty today, other then in and out with the Aussies we fared quite well. It does wear us thin the cold miserable weather.

  20. Am I the only person in the world who's experiencing good winter weather? Beautiful day here yesterday, and set to continue for a while. But don't be fooled... WE'LL GET IT SOON ENOUGH.

  21. Yes, in Canada we are sick of the weather. We've got enough snow to last a life time. We are so sick of shovelling it, there's nowhere left to put it!!

  22. Dare I say its quite warm here. 25C today and moving up to 39C next week.

  23. And then there is Northern California where we are experiencing a drought.

  24. I know how he feels, and you for that matter.

  25. Ah well, I'm always thankful that we don't live on Venus with all that searing furnace-heat, suffocating CO2 and sulphuric acid rain, never mind the bone-crushing atmospheric pressure. So you, see, J.G., It really IS all relative. :-)

  26. What makes Jason despotic? ...a ruler or other person who holds absolute power, typically one who exercises it in a cruel or oppressive way.

    1. Ooooooo!
      Someone has just googled despot

      You forget the word despot is preceded by the word " affable"

    2. Actually, I looked in a dictionary.

  27. I agree Enough Already. My brave little tete a tete bulbs are showing their first green leaves; they'll be bobbing around in a muddy bath if this rain does not stop.

  28. Our horrible heat has gone and it was a pleasant 28 C here today so I'll stop complaining.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Shhh ... don't speak too soon, but it's stopped raining here and I can see the hills opposite which must mean that it will stay dry for at least ... oooh maybe even 10 minutes!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Over30 degrees C here with a gentle sea breeze, ideal for drying laundry. Been working in the garden for the last two days building a large aviary and managed to get sunburnt. Still, the DomTom is ice cold which makes it all bearable.

  31. I have had enough winter for this year.

  32. It's true...the weather seems to be hideous everywhere.

  33. The weather has been clinically insane over here lately. And also wildly inconsistent.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm over it already too John. Hurry up spring!!!

  35. This weather was amusing for a little while, but now the joke is wearing very thin. Can we have the ridiculously-hot joke now, please?
