Tanking it to Winter

I received an email on Monday from a co-worker.

“Are you done with the weather yet?”

My response…

“I want to run over Father Winter with a tank. A huge tank.”

She deadpanned…

“There’s no need for violence.”

Oh, yes there is, my dear. Yes, there is.

The need for a tank began at the end of January, when a snowstorm turned into -50 F wind chills.

Father Winter has been miserable ever since.



More Snow

More Ice




Rain and Fog




On the day I said goodbye to mom, it snowed, pelted ice, then rained, then snowed again.

The wind picked up Saturday night.

More snow.

Wind gusts of up to 60 mph on Sunday.


The awful 131 car pile-up on I-41, taking a young teacher’s life.

Then two days of cold.

And more #@&%*$#@&* snow.

Where’s the tank? The really huge tank?

For Father Winter.

He’s been a real jerk.

      A ticked off Mary J could be even deadlier. 😉
      I think the curbs are also sick of Father Winter. They haven’t seen the light of day in weeks and it might be several more before all of the snow melts.
      Stupid groundhog.

    I hear ya, Mary! I’m on the same mission impossible to get to spring fast…if you see the groundhog, tell him to stop spinning and spilling the snow-globe!

    I would take a whole army of tanks to chase the winter away ! Fortunately in Belgium it looks like if the worst is over !!

    Just think of how hard we’ll be crying in a few months, when that solar flame-thrower hits (SUMMER). Still, you never get 131-car pileups because of heat, so there’s that.

      I very seldom complain about heat other than the times it makes me run the A/C excessively. I’m not s fan of the A/C because it feels cold to me, like winter.

    Oh my. Oh my. I don’t have a tank, but if I did, I’d lend you mine. Our winter has just been wintery.

    Tragic about that accident.
    It’s been mild here but for the next two days the weatherman predicts a return of winter. Guess we’ll see.
