Winter is taking its toll. I’m not only bored by the long days inside, I’m depressed and logy. And I’m in Florida, missing the fifty inches of snow piled in my yard, the repeating storms and bad roads, the shut-in feeling when the night falls at four pm.
We’ve had our bad weather here in the Panhandle. It snowed twenty miles North an event that occurs every thirty or forty years. Rain has preceded every storm in Georgia, South Carolina, on up. Heavy rain that keeps me inside and makes the internet connection act like a drunken butterfly.
In between the storms has been an unbelievably thick fog. If you remember the horror movie, “The Fog,” then you have a good idea what it’s been like taking the dog for his necessary walk.
The isolation has drained any energy from my muse. I want to sleep late, go to bed early and eat comfort foods. I know that sounds familiar. Ah, hot tea, popcorn, chocolate, I could go on for hours.
When I spent the winters in Connecticut I had a few tricks to get
This too shall pass.

The good news is most of our snow up here is melting. The bad news more coming next week. Ah Spring. Where the heck are you?
Those pics are beautiful! I love snow and fog and rain. :)
Our yard looks like spring. Bare ground in February when there should be 6 ft. of snow! I'm out in the woods in tennis shoes instead of snowshoes. This has to be the weirdest winter ever!
My kids don't even want me to ask when I call. Sigh. Its melting there, too.
I like changes in the weather, just not getting stuck in a loop. Spring is coming,spring is coming, spring is coming...
Celebrate, I would. The only thing cold and snow is good for is killing bugs.
This has been the winter that everyone wants to forget. Sheesh. I sure hope spring is coming.
"This too shall pass" is one of my favorite (and often-used) expressions! I'm digging into the comfort food myself these days, Barbara.
Soon. very soon. I'm looking into my crystal ball. Soon
Some expression never grow old. I have a craving for chocolate chip cookies and the sun is out. hmmmm
