I am so over this Snowzilla aftermath.
SO damn OVER IT!!
I hate the way they plow the streets here.
I hate the way they pile the snow.
Sorry, but it just makes me sick!
I want to be able to take a Power Walk without being scared shitless of slipping and falling on black ice.
Also, I do NOT want to reach a point in my route where I am forced to take my WALK out ONTO a busy street. Because, you know what, on the sidewalks next to BUSY STREET there are piles, upon piles of snow and ice that are taller than I am. So, therefore I have NO choice other than to walk out into said street. IN RUSH hour traffic.
It really did SUCK.
And, sure, I did survive the street walking. Strangely, not a single driver was honking at me, or gave me the finger and what not. Thanks drivers.
I know it must have been scary for you to see this woman walking on a crowded street against traffic (thank god it wasn’t the other way around, at least).
Oh, and then I was going to take a short cut on the golf course.
I started walking out on the snow. When, all of a sudden, I was walking in DEEP ice water. The snow gave way to the water…
And, me? No, I had no other choice than to continue. My shoes got soaked, my feet and my calves.
Oh boy, was I ever a HAPPY CAMPER once I got back home? NOT!
I was so frustrated.
I cannot wait for all the snow piles to melt away now.
Nature is ugly as sin by the moment.
It makes ME, yes ME of ALL people in the world, long for spring and summer.
Sure, I’d rather have a decent winter. A winter with snow (IN tolerable amounts) and cold weather. Come think about it, I don’t really want spring now (It can’t be anyway. It is impossible). But THE CURRENT STATE of slush, snow piles higher than me, untreated sidewalks, and so on and SO forth is SO aggravating .
I am tired of it.
SO, guess what…
I am looking at some summer pics instead…
Come with me…
Let’s take a look at these for a while, shall we?
OH, but peeps, do you know what day it is today?
IT IS GROUNDHOG DAY!!
SO, it remains to be seen what Phil, the groundhog, will predict this morning.
An early spring?
OR, six more weeks of winter?
Shadow? OR, no shadow...?
We'll see what Punxsutawney Phil in Pennsylvania will "tell us" later on today!
PHIL did NOT see his shadow!! It will be an early spring :-)
Well, I guess we'll just have to see about that ONE.
But PHIL has spoken!!
Have a good Groundhog Day, y'all!!
All pics today are pics that have I shot with my iPhone.
In Långgrund close to our summer house. It was SO calm, and so warm this day in July 2014.
Evening by the summer house. OR rather, it is night time...
Summer morning by said summer house.
Warm summer evening on my sister's and brother-in-law's balcony in Stockholm
I want to go to THE OBX and sit and drink my morning coffee on a Widow's peek...
And, enjoy a beach!
Be a bit tanned and just enjoy....
I wanna kayak in calm waters...
Go to Key West, maybe...
I CANNOT wait to take a cruise again...
AND, to swim in turqiose waters!
A nordic summer day!
Summer evening on the Virginia Eastern Shore...
And, to sit here and listen to the sea, the wind and the sea gulls...My aunt's summer haven on earth.
Take the boat for a ride on a warm summer day.
Enjoy the sunset from our deck...
Take photos of Karolina on our way to Ostrobothnia!
