Monday Musings- Can I Hibernate Until Winter is Over?

Hello friends, I haven’t been updating here much, but have quite a bit planned for this week. Yay!

Anyway, it’s no secret that it’s been pretty damn cold lately (and it’s been cold everywhere!). Upstate and Central New York have had a record breaking month this February with how cold it’s been! We haven’t had a day above freezing all month long. It makes me want to hide under my covers til spring!hidingundercovers

However, it makes for some pretty cool and beautiful winter scenery.

A spring-fed fountain in Letchworth State Park created an ice volcano!!!

This is about an hour and a half (give or take a little) from where I live. It’s huge and gorgeous. I hope I get to go see it before it melts. Look how tiny the person looks next to it!!! Want to see more? Click here for a local news story.

Also, Niagara Falls has frozen…

See it on the news!

And the snowmen have surrendered!!!

In other words, I want to hibernate.

It’s cold. It’s snowy… we’ve gotten over 150 inches of snow so far and it keeps on coming! I’ve gotten very little writing done in the past couple of weeks. I finished a chapter last Friday that took me 2 weeks to revise. At least I’m still writing, but my productivity has been very low.

How is the winter weather affecting you?

Is it Summer where you live (or at least warmer)? Because if it is I’m jealous!

    Love the pictures, especially the snowmen one! It was getting warmer where I am then the temperature plummeted again. Snow has been predicted as well but how much we will get is anyone’s guess.
