It's snowing ...again but a pleasant reminder of winter.

We have had some very nice weather and most of our snow is gone. I woke up this morning to a beautiful white covered ground. When I heard the forecast I felt a little irritated because we had gotten used to the warmer temps. But this morning I find I am enjoying the wonder of snow! It makes everything look fresh and clean again! Maybe Mother Nature wants to remind us that we can't control her! LOL...but it's a beautiful way to start the day and with spring just a couple days away she had to have one last little reminder of winter. So are there times when you find a situation might be frustrating and when it comes around it turns out to be a pleasant surprise?

We are getting some light snow here too. That little patch of grass that showed up in the yard over the weekend has disappeared again. I don't mind the snow so much this time of year, when I know that it won't last very long. I am so ready for a nice green yard and some leaves on the trees.

Me too...I had a lake in my backyard last week then it froze so now we'll have some rain this afternoon and hopefully wash some of the yucky stuff away.

I think you're kind of in my neighborhood, I'm just north of Rochester. It has quit snowing now, and is back to dripping. Typical Minnesota transition from winter to spring!

I love the smell of mothernature around me. I like winter more than summer. I was once stuck in huge downpour water was raising to a great height and then later i had a ball of time because i had one good time riding my bike.

Right now we're severly flooded here in Ohio. I think with the rain that is expected to fall over the next couple days we might be SOL. I dont think I can find any reason to make this situation less frustrating.. but normally I try to look on the bright side of things and make the best of whatever happens.

Snow is beautiful.I like snow i like the place where there are real four seasons. this will remind you of time passing. the snow tell you that it's the end of a year and you could find what you have done in the year.the flowers make you real happy after a white winter. It's fun when it snow especially when we were children.we could play in the snow to make snowman and dress him. how fun it is .how interesting to be yonug again.

There is no winter here in my country...and I wonder how fun it could be if there is. Since I was a child, I am dreaming of seeing a snow. And when my uncle had a chance to go abroad and got a picture while he is in snow area... I was actually a little bit envy...lols You are very lucky that you have it there what I always dream to have.

We've had the yo yo effect all winter. Nice, nasty, nice, nasty all winter. Very annoying. I have situations at work that can be terribly frustrating but in the end, everything turns out fine. I deal with the public and there is always a situation that's difficult to handle. Customers come to me because I am the oldest employee and they think I am the boss. I handle complaints constantly and do the best I can.

Yes people have been crabby this winter....we had it too. If it didn't snow it was -15 or so and then it would warm up to snow again. I think people are starting to perk up a bit. I hope so anyway! And hope things calm down for you!

Winter is a season of snowing and severe cold indeed. Honestly, we don't have that in our country that's why it seems vague to me. However, I always ask my students who are living in the snowy part of the globe about it including the feeling of snow and the like. On TV, when I see snow, I feel the warmth of the season where family stick to each other, bond together to produce enough warmth to the whole house.

Yes we do bond when the weather outside is frightful! But this little snow will be gone tomorrow but still...it's winter hanging on for just one more day.

I too was surprised with the abrupt change of weather here in denmark. Yesterday the sun was shining brightly that I really felt the warm and the soon coming of spring and then summer. But when I woke up today, it's snowing real hard. Oh, how nice to look at the places covered with snow, so white all over.

Ahh you’re so lucky! We don’t get snow or winter here T_T ..i got to experience winter when I was studying in the UK. I miss the winter season! Many people here think that I’m strange because I miss winter. Lol. Our country is warm all year round, that’s why I miss the winter season so much!;)

I can understand that...it's nice to have the break! I am not a fan of warmer weather...I prefer it somewhat cooler!

Well mother nature is certainly showing the world who the boss is. We have not had any snow as yet, we had a lot of rain last week, but today is a lovely sunny day and although the air is cold the sun is so warm it makes you sweat. I went out with 2 jumpers on a scarf, gloves and coat and I was stripping off as I walked around town.

Well that is a good sign that winter is on the way out! Hello Spring! LOL
