Phil, you are a liar!!

Pin It

I never really believed in the whole groundhog thing but this year we had such beautiful weather in the beginning of March that I was almost convinced. But no, really ...:)

I prepared our garden by tilling the soil, removing old (and new) weeds. I even bought some seeds:

We had temperatures up to 70F just a week ago, and I was so ready to start working on my garden. Until three days ago when we woke up to this:

The temperatures dropped into the lower 30s, and I'm freezing my tooshie right now :( To make matters worse, it's been a 3-day storm bringing about 8 inches. To prove my point, here's a pic of my 6-year old fruitlessly trying to clear out the recently assembled trampoline:

Poor guy...I'm just so done with winter here!!! And you, groundhog Phil, are such a liar!

How's the weather on your side of the world? :)

  2. We in the UK are having rough weather. Lots of spring planting should have been done but it's way too cold. Winter has been endless. Some places have had lots of snow but us here on the North West coast have hardly seen any but it's bitter cold. It can't last for ever and your son will soon be on his trampoline.

    1. I hope so, I'm just so done!!! It's hard when you get cold temperatures but no snow. It was 22 degrees this morning here :( I'm SO ready for spring!

  3. Although here in Los Angeles its been a cold winter, we have had barely any rain. I'm ready for spring but dreading the 100 degree weather thats coming in the summer.

    1. Oh, I can relate! I'm dreading summer heat too! I'd be perfectly fine having 75-80 degrees throughout the year :)

  5. We got 5 inches of snow yesterday and last night, and they are calling for another 2-4 today. :( The dogs love it! I do not!

    I am so ready for spring! Hopefully it will be here soon.

    1. Oh, I bet the dogs love it :) I hope it will be a very short snowstorm for you!

  6. Oh my gosh, the picture of your son and the trampoline is adorable!

    The last few years we have had early spring, not so this year. As I type this we are getting a little light snow. Big snow went south of us today.

    1. Thank you :) It was so fun and sad at the same time to watch him out there :) Poor guy...

  7. Love that picture. It made me smile. And I agree - my kids wore shorts not that long ago and then yesterday I felt like I wanted to strangle them all. Being cooped up in the house all day doesn't make for happy boys or happy mommas. Guess I should have planned an outing, but I had way to much to do.

  8. I thought spring was well under way here too. We've had temps in the 80's and tonight we're expecting a freeze. We have a strong north wind and need to figure out how to keep the tomatoes and peppers from freezing.

    1. Yikes!! It's sunny here too but, man, it's cold!! I know it's only March and I shouldn't be complaining but I AM!! :)

  10. That's a drastic change in weather. I have no idea how people deal with that.

    1. You know, I always think of people with high blood pressure or heart conditions! It's probably so bad for them!! I bet it's amazing right now on Barbados :)

  11. It's around freezing here, but the snow had not materialized more than a dusting. More is predicted for tonight. We'll see what happens. I also, love the picture of your son trying to clear off the trampoline.

    1. Oh, I hope the storm will stay away from you!!

  12. Oh no! I hate when the weather does that. For the past few years, the apricot trees at my parents house have budded and bloomed just to be frozen by a spring storm :( They live in Utah, though, and they have unpredictable weather! Here in Vegas, it's nice :)
