Today I woke up around 7. I remember hearing a car pass by and thinking, sounds like the tyres are on a wet road but it’s not rain, sounds sludgy. Yes, that is how I wake myself up early on a Saturday morning.
When I peeked out of the window, sure enough, a winter scene greeted my bleary eyes. It was snowy, in fact there was a mild blizzard blowing.
I’m following the #waitingforspring hash tag today after clicking on it and finding some humorous and positive takes on this unyielding wintry weather.
Spring has sprung – the daffodils have been out for over a week now – but it is really struggling to kick winter out! What’s the weather like where you are?
I wish you a safe, sheltered and warm weekend indoors unless you actually like trudging around in the cold…

Funny! You are longing for spring and I would love some snow! It doesn’t ever snow where I live. In fact, last year we drove inland to see some snow, and it was the first time I had touched snow, EVER. Anyways, I hope spring comes soon for you!

It’s crazy isn’t it! Maybe it is the snow that has kept me in blogging hibernation!
27 March 2013 at 18:21
Haha! I’m hoping your coming out of hibernation signifies the arrival of spring 😛

Aww I’m desperately waiting for some sun. Cold is one thing, but no sun is too much! 😛

I’m waiting for spring too! Enough with snow and cold and biting winds!
