Miller high life please
I make a mean stuffed cabbage with potato rolls.
We put on about 10 lbs over the winter. I cook too much of the heavy stuff.
It comes in handy after a couple of hours clearing the driveway (again).

It's been such a cold winter, the back door of my house wouldn't close right and the dead bolt was out of alignment. Even my outside garage door wouldn't close because the cement has heaved up! I've never seen a winter where concrete slabs have raised up a good half inch due to the below zero temperatures. I even had to push my dog out the door to do her business because she didn't like how cold it was outside. It seems now when the sun finally shines and it's around 35 degrees, it feels more like 50! I think people are going to bring out lawn chairs when it hits 60.
Cheers to that. I don't know where you're located, but winter might not quite be over yet. I would not get excited until you can get excited.
I made this mistake of becoming super ecstatic a couple weeks ago on a 40 degree day - next day blasted with -20 and a snow storm.

Americans are so cute when they complain about winter ^_^
I've been doing the snoopy dance for several days now! so very very very very very underscore the very, happy!
This Canadian is a tropical greenhouse plant, minus any wish to be around poisonous insects. But lucky we always live in the warmest spot in canada, from birth. Okanagan and even Fraser Valley for a bit.edit on 7-3-2014 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
We got our first thaw here since this winter started, It was a very pleasant 37 degrees and sunny to boot.
It felt like summer to us today :-)....No wind no snow was very much appreciated.
I know it is just winter weather but this year took a toll on us and I am sure more around the globe.
Right now we still have drifts on our roof that are at least 3 feet high, but today was a start and we have really enjoyed seeing old man winter getting his ass kicked.
The old man winter is dying, and we are going to have a party with BBQ'd Top Sirloins and Baked Potatoes and Brown Baked Beans.
And lots of beer.
We are used to long and cold winters but.....this year takes the cake way beyond anything we have experienced in the past 20 years.
Good riddance to this winter and we hope that we do not see a repeat next year.
There it is in print and I feel great, nothing like lashing out at the weather with a Rant.
