More Snow!

Thursday, February 25, 2010

I'm looking out my window at a winter wonderland and I'm just not feeling the joy that usually comes from such a beautiful sight. This has been one snowy winter to say the least. The ground still has over a foot from the last blizzard and we're supposed to get another 12 to 18 inches. OK, so I do love to play in the snow and sledding with the kids is a blast. I keep telling myself that shoveling the white stuff burns significant calories and that's a plus. But I am so freakin' sick of my treadmill! I miss the trails. I miss my feet on terra firma. I miss the fresh air, the streams, the flora & the fauna. The roads even suck since there is no shoulder on them, just snow banks. I think I'm getting that winter thing...what's it called? SAD? Seasonal Affective Disorder? SNOW Affective Disorder. I need sun. I'm whining. I feel cranky. And what really sucks is that when this melts, it's going to be a squishy, muddy mess. *sigh* OK, let me go grab my sneakers and get my butt on the treadmill. Phew, glad I got that off my chest! If anybody reads this, sorry for the negative energy! emoticon

    I know what you mean. I live in NE PA, and every year around this time I get terrible cabin fever. I love winter sports, xc skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, but enough is enough. I want to hit the hiking trails. Throw on my hiking boots grab my pack and get out on the trail. I keep saying, good weather is just around the corner! So I will be chained ot the treadmill until then.

    Not sure what snow is like as I live in a city where we don't get any. I can relate with you regarding SAD. I like to be outdoors and when it goes below 60 degrees here, I stay inside because for me that is way too cold. Nothing like what you are seeing there, I'm sure, but just the same I'm ready to get outside again and enjoy running, hiking and inline skating.

    No negative energy at all. Sometimes we need to vent.

    Best of luck.
