Snow, Fever, Snow, Fever, Repeat

We spent the weekend over at Tracy's. I was really glad I decided to go over there for the big blizzard of '10 just for my mental sanity. Though, the fact that my son is a shitty, shitty sleeper away from home and the fact that he is teething/viral/something and pretty much means he did this for a good portion of the weekend:

The rest of the kids had a great time, though. And Tracy and I were able to chat and watch movies after they went to bed. She made us some yummy Carribean drink called a Dirty Banana, which sort of helped take some of the cold out of winter. So, that was all exciting and different.
But, February. You are on notice. If you don't cut it out I'm going to have to punch you in the face, just like I did last year.
A weird wind-whipped part of our yard.

This is just getting ridiculous. We got 28 inches of snow over the weekend and are expecting what could be another 12 or so inches tomorrow.
Yes, that is an empty box from a case of Yuengling. What of it?

Now Becca has a fever and a continual, nonstop cough.

I'm feeling just a teeny bit ready for spring.
Is there anyplace I can go to escape this vicious cycle of snow and snot removal? I've run out of places to put it all.

Now imagine having the same shitload of snow...and being unable to throw it anywhere. Can't put it on the sidewalk, people need to walk there. Can't put it in the road, people need to drive there. I believe in the power of positive thought. So maybe if we ALL start thinking hard, it'll be 80 degrees tomorrow and all this shit will melt. Winter? Is on my shit list.

Kayris, I have been WONDERING about urban areas and how the heck they can shovel their cars out. Where does it go? Seriously, what will you do? This stresses me out for you!

Poor Andrew! I actually think all of that snow looks like fun, which surprises me. If I was in the middle of it, I might not be so excited. Now snot removal, so not fun. Christopher has been dripping snot for months. He just seems to go from one cold to the next. He was the same last winter.

Dump trucks. We see them load snow in dump trucks. But, then what?

You could always come to Minneapolis! We know how to handle snow here.
