Bunny (and me) Want Spring!



I remembered that last year I posted this great bunny picture, and sure enough I did on February 28, 2009. Once again, Bunny and I are desperate for spring. Desperate! This year it's not the 20 inches of snow we got in the last few days that drives my desperation, but the six inches of slush at every intersection. On the way home from the subway last night I was patiently waiting to cross Broadway and a taxi zoomed by drenching me head to toe in dirty, cold slush. It went through my hat, into my eyes and in my mouth. I dripped my way home -- only a block -- and have not gone out since.

This incident and the second blow to my ability to cope with winter -- my boots are now leaking -- has taken away what remnants of coping skills I had. I am done with winter! Please bring on spring. Bunny and I are desperate.

I do so agree with you. It is still snowing here. They said our winter storm was over but this evening we've had lots more snow accumulate. I am tired of shoveling but my boots are not leaking yet. After having had that happen to me last year, I went boot crazy and now own 5 pairs...that way they'll last longer. I hope.

Here's to hoping and praying your winter will be over soon. Love your bunny picture!

When I was a little girl my dad worked out of town a lot during the holidays. Once he was in New York and he brought us up for Christmas.

So you remember the automats? For eating? We had Christmas dinner in the automat. When walking back to the hotel - I remember that deep slush! I know exactly what you are talking about.

Prayer for spring to come soon!

I think New Yorkers should all carry derringers and maybe those taxi drivers will learn to "drive friendly" as we call it down here. What a jerk! You poor thang.

Oh, my. Sorry about the slush all over you! Maybe I need to rethink my wardrobe for New York in April?

Why is this winter so different. I've never felt this way about wanting spring so soon! By the time spring comes, we'll all want something else! ha.
Have a good week.
