That's so funny! We saw a hung snowman and another with a Six-Shooter in its pocket in Dallas last week.

Even the "warm climates" are ready to commit hari kari.

Lord help us!

I have been taking pictures out of my window all day. Sigh, not that much change, in spite of the fact that we're supposed to get "a big one" today, tonight and tomorrow.

Dang, I'm really feeling for you guys...I'm over here getting ready to plant my peas because it has been so balmy and you guys can't get even a few days above freezing. :-(
Stay warm and safe...spring will be there soon, I promise!

I'm still looking at the same snow from December! It's frigid here, but at least we haven't had multiple blizzards like some of my buddies.

I love the picture of the hanging snowman. We have had such mild weather here. Mainers say it happens about every 20 years. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Brrrr! Poor snowman. He used to be a fun sign of winter, but winter is wearing out it's welcome this year.
I hope this next storm won't be too bad for you guys.
It snowed all day here today, but our temps were too 'warm' (about 30f) for it too stick.
