Let’s Talk about the Weather

No..like literally..let’s talk about the weather.  How bizarre has it been in February?  That groundhog called for more winter and man did mother nature deliver.

Now, I haven’t truly experienced the brunt of the snowpocolypse that has occured in the past 30 days because I live in South Carolina.  We’ve had cold and rainy, but no snow.  I’m sure those of you that live in the north are thinking of how fortunate I am, but as someone who is more of a summer than a winter…I don’t see fortune.  For us, if it snows decently, we pretty much shut down.  This means I can work from home, stay in my pj’s and drink coffee and hot chocolate while snuggling up with my hubby and the stinker (aka my adorable furbaby – Yota).

No snow, means going out in miserably cold and rainy conditions and no one ever wants to do that.  So…mother nature, if we are going to keep with this cold thing..can you toss some of the white stuff our way..and make it stick.  Otherwise..let’s warm it up a bit.

Speaking of warming it up though…next week we are supposed to get up to 78 degrees! Beautiful right..but it look at all that rain.  Can Spring just arrive already?

While I know talking about the weather isn’t the most exciting topic..I’m kind of a nerd in that I OBSESS over the weather.  I check the daily/weekly/10 day and radar maps several times a day.   Maybe I’m hoping for a different outcome..although..that’s feeling a little close to the definition of insanity.  So..what about you.  Is there anyone out there that feels as passionately about the weather as I do?  Let me know in the comments below and we can obsess together.  

Wisconsin..Road America…Day 1

So…let me apologize in advance, but…I don’t have any pics to share today…I WILL have some tomorrow…I promise to be a better blogger and photographer.  I know it’s not an excuse, but it’s just so freakin’ cold here! For example…here is the weather for the next 36 hours:

COLD! COLD! COLD!

However…tomorrow I am planning to suck it up and get the job done.

For those of you who don’t know…Andy and I are up here in the frozen tundra for a racing event.  He is coaching a client of his that drives in the PCA (Porsche Club of America) series.  We had a few minor setbacks today, but overall the day ended productively.

Quick Trackback:

We actually flew into Milwaukee last night and drove over the hotel.  We are staying in Sheboygan, WI which is about an hour away from Milwaukee.  We are decently close to Lake Michigan which is where I am guessing all of this cold and crazy wind is coming from…

Driving through Milwaukee was pretty cool..it gave me a chance to check out the scenery ahead of time.  Monday night we have some extra time…so I am going to take advantage and get some great industrial..bigger city type shots for a new series I am starting.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate with me…

I am going to go and try to warm up now…wish me luck…if anyone can give me any insight as to why this area never warms up (we were here July 2009 and I was still cold most of the days)…it would be greatly appreciated!
