The Never Ending Winter.

"This is the never ending wi-inter! Ohwoh oh ohwoh oh ohwoh oh. The never ending wi-inter!" (Name that song...)

"This is the winter that never ends. Yes it goes on and on, my friends..." (Name that song...)

I'm sure the world is sick and tired of hearing us Midwesterners complain about our never ending winter. But dudes, this stinks. Usually by this time of the year, if we get snow, the previous snow had already melted and the current snow typically melts quickly.

This year? This year it's just snow upon snow upon more freakin' snow. Which really sucks.

Also, I'm sure you've all heard the "Remember last year, when we were mowing our yards by this point?" "Remember last year when it hit 80 degrees in March?!"...I've moved beyond wishing for last year's weather and have just starting pleading with Mother Nature for a "normal" year.

You know, highs in the 50-60s, rain, maybe an occasional snow shower.

Anyway, I'm writing this more for posterity's sake than anything else. For those "normal" Springs when the weather is acting appropriately and we MinnesOOOOOtan's are wishing for warmer weather and so we start to complain. Yes, this post is going to be for those days, to remind me how BAD it can really be.

If you hear me complain in the following years, please take me by the hand (or the ear...or the hair) and point me to this post.

Last April 5th, this is what our weather was like. Pay close attention to the clothing people are wearing and the background scenery.

And, photos I took just this morning, after yet another "Winter Storm Watch". With no warm up in sight...and with more snow on the horizon.

Snow plow at the ready...maybe we'll fend off any more snow just by being ready for it.

Same back yard as in the photos in the link above...just zoomed in so you can see our frozen over pond. Gross.

And, one other view of the yard. Look at all the ugly snow.

Please, Mother Nature, please let us see some green grass soon. Please.


  1. Yay! I found another mom who piggy-backs songs LOL! Couldn't guess the first one but the second... this is the song that never ends!

    I hear you on the never-ending winter. We just had snow this weekend. I'm hoping we get our spring, sometime soon!

    Wishing you a lovely week!

  2. Hello, Neat post. There's a problem with your site in web explorer, could check this? IE still is the market leader and a good element of folks will omit your fantastic writing due to this problem.

  3. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  5. Yuck!!! I feel for ya! Our snow has long disappeared THANKFULLY, however, the temps are well below average! This is the first week our highs aren't going into the 30's, and I am praying that means we are steadily rising temps!

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

You! Yes, YOU!! You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now. Tonight. Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post you know how to make it... But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.
