Too much ice - had enough of winter.
OK, it's been a different one this year, winter that is. I am now at my rope's end.
For the last few weeks we have been shuffling on ice to get to the cars in the driveway. For two weeks the main entrance to the house was cordoned off with yellow tape and visitors to the house were told to use the basement entrance.
Every once in a while the forecast will call for slightly above freezing temps, but the temps never make it up there. Then we get sucker-punched by another storm which dumps ice pellets on us for 8 hours. Of course they freeze all together and create ice shields that look like snow banks.
Simply going to fill the bird feeders is a chore. Yesterday I gave up and put on DH's spikey rubbers over my boots. Felt like I was ready to hike up a glacier!!!
I got those bird feeders filled, but what got to me yesterday was my DD falling on the ice as she was trying to help us bring groceries into the house. Luckily she didn't break anything but her whole left leg is out of commission for basketball, skating, and such.
I am so angry at this winter. I wish it would stop behaving this way and go back to the normal routine of 'snow storm one week, next week big melt'. The ice is just too much and it's been a long one. Our winters typically start in mid-January, but this year we got hit in late November and it has yet to stop.
OK, I've vented. Time to go sow a container of something and while outside placing it on an ice bank look up to the Gods and tell them "THAT'S ENOUGH!!!!". Think they'll hear me??
