Most of the time I say, thank goodness I don't live down there. The anticipation of spring, and the cooling trend of fall, are so priceless I wouldn't want to give that up.

I'm with you, minus the cooling trend of fall. I hate the cold & winter! I'm all about the heat & humidity.

When you have systems, you have control.

If youíre born poor, itís not your mistake. But if you die poor, it is your mistake.

Yea, but look at you guys, you've already lost some of your yearly income. Not knocking you northerners, but I don't have to worry about that, ever.

We normally have snow on the ground until early April here in MN. Last year was an exception. And we didn't miss out on much though, plenty of $now this year

I work in the fall when it's at least this cold. I've already gotten started but am not feeling very motivated.

I worked all day out in the cold, I dont think it got above 40 and the wind was blowing. I agree this year sucks.

Even here in Kentucky its going to be a slow spring. We had 3" of snow last night, higher elevations got up to 9". Its suppose to be back up to 58* this weekend, but it is still soggy outside. I wish this cold weather would piss off, I am ready to mow.

I feel your pain family, I'm in the same boat I want to get the gear ready but I don't just want it to sit there.
