Dear Winter, I am breaking up with you…

It has been nearly two months since our last post – why is that? WINTER, not only Winter but a very cold, wet and windy start to Spring. We could count on one hand the number of dry/windless days.  When it’s raining, when it’s a miserable day, you are initially happy to curl up with a good book, watch the midday movie, drink hot chocolate and eat warming soups and casseroles. But day after day, week after week of this, you begin to get cabin fever and start climbing the walls. I saw a quote the other day that really summed it up:

I am tired of winter, I want to bitch how hot it is

But you have to look for silver linings in all situations. Where would I rather be….here in cold/wet/windy Tassie or back at work? No competition there at all – Tassie for sure!  Also there have been some amazing rainbows and that can only happen with rainy weather.

Over the past week much of Tasmania has turned white in a Spring cold snap. Here in Smithton we have seen hail and frosty mornings but no snow. The other morning the car had to be scraped before it could be driven. Even the rubbish bins were frozen!
