Don’t Let The Door Hit You On the Way Out

One thing I’ve learned since I started blogging is that the seasons vary greatly across the country (most people probably learn that in Kindergarten).

This time of year the differences in the regions seems especially apparent though.

Spring has already sprung in areas to the South.

While peeps in Wisconsin or Minnesota are still knee deep in the white stuff.

And those damn people in Oregon are always getting spring before I do. My sister lives in Oregon, so I reserve the right to use profanity toward the Pacific Northwest’s superior springiness.

I really wish I could say goodbye to winter. You’ve overstayed your welcome. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

But we have at least another month of the colder stuff, so I might as well embrace it.

The warm weather will make its way to Ohio eventually though. It pretty much has to. Doesn’t it?

OK, I know you are all saying “How cool is this animated flower show”!

Well, Kevin & Amanda showed how to make animated images with Photoshop on their blog last week and I’ve been slightly addicted to playing around with them ever since. So much easier than the HTML stuff I had to do when I had my rotating blog banner way back when.

Disclaimer #1 – All snowy photos were taken earlier this winter. It’s actually a balmy 27 degrees, with no snow on the ground, right this minute. Storm coming tonight though.

Disclaimer #2 – Since this is my first time trying the fancy animated photos on my blog, I have no idea if the flower show will work if you are reading this through the RSS feed or through an email. You may have to click over to the blog if you want to see the photos rotate.

    I love the photos too. I’m in Alabama and snow is such a treat to us. Nobody has to go to work if there’s as much as an inch on the ground (hardly ever happens). My daffodils have been blooming since January and I even have Iris blooming. Earliest ever!

    Hi Pam, you are getting fancy but I love it. The snow is beautiful but if I get into any this weekend in the mountain driving the Mini I will be terrified. Thank you for your sweet comment today. big hugs, olive

    Wait for it–it might com your way.

    This time of year can be torture, can’t it? Just when you think there are signs of spring here comes winter again. It is definitely springy alternating with cold here in Texas. Hope you see it soon too.

    Whew!! I thought my computer was going haywire, but it’s your rotating flower show. Very cool! It’s hard to imagine some areas of the country are experiencing spring-like weather right now when we’re expecting a few more inches of snow tonight! I hope you don’t get buried in the white stuff!

    So tomorrow here in the pacific northwest we are suppose have downpours and wind all day–so we are not catching spring quite yet :) It kinda sucks we have had no snow to speak of–probably will have snow during spring break, like last year. :)

    Very Impressive Pam! I always wondered how those pictures moved, so it’s Photoshop huh? I might have to check that out because I love yours :)
    Sorry about all that snow. I live in California and I’m always cold, I don’t think I’d survive your weathers. haha.

    Isn’t it funny how we can be jealous of the weather in other people’s states? I live in Oregon & HATE HATE HATE the Winter weather. Early Spring? Not where I am at. All I see here is rain, rain, rain. I would love for some snow!

    Pretty pics by the way. Stay warm!

    I am very familiar with the Oregon weather because my daughter lives west of Portland.

    Her rock garden has bloomed almost all winter

    I have 22 inches of snow in my yard here in mid-Missouri
