I will admit I don't miss freezing cold temps but I do miss not usually having a White Christmas but I will take a white Ground hogs, Super Bowl, Birthday weekend LOL unless it gets deeper than the 1 1/2" they said it was going to be!
I was in Michigan last March for my mother-in-law's funeral and I thought I would freeze. I have only lived in Texas for 4 years now, but my blood has thinned in this warm weather. I honestly don't believe I could return to that climate for any reason at all.

But, like you, I do miss a white Christmas. But by December 26th, I was done with snow. Unfortunately, in Michigan, there's another 3 or 4 months of cold and snow after that.

Thanks I have been lucky so far and they have not came here to disrupt this thread. Might be because they don't like pleasant and informative intelligent conversation LOL
Probably is. They generally prefer to talk to all their other selves.

Let's not forget White Halloween too! In the early 80's I was standing in Lake Orion, MI at the Memorial Day parade and it started snowing!

Most them (ones from IT where I have never posted in) have backed off me now but the stranglers have been on many forums I game on and blend in there but go to off the way places I post at just to show their true colors. These particular ones want everyone to think they are such nice posters so they don't tend to show out in front of others not in their group. But they sure like to gang up and troll together.
I don't come here for drama I like to enjoy posts by others and sometimes gain great ideas and even recipes and such. I love to see the bright and happy posts. I also like to make sure my friends are feeling good and who knows maybe bring them a smile if they are not!
Well some people on Topix just live to make other poster's lives miserable and some of us just live to find those people.

;)

This is for the most part a pretty good thread. We get the ocassional gray boxer stopping by to spew cowardice ignorance, but for the most part, we all get along pretty good.

You're among friends here, Lily.

I remember in the early 70's--1973 to be exact, I was working at a US Steel quarry in northern Michigan as a summer laborer (they hired college kids for that) and it was snowing in early June. I had only been in Michigan for a few years then and thought this must be some kind of cruel joke.

Southern Michigan was never quite so bad, but I can remember it snowing as early as October and as late as late April there.

Funny you should say pumpkins. They were usually frozen to the ground after Halloween and then when removed in the spring they would fall apart and the ones the kids only painted instead of carving would leave seeds everywhere. The next thing you know I would have pumpkins growing everywhere. I once lived in an upscale subdivision and up sprouted the pumpkins right in front of the hedges in the flower bed in front of the big picture windows. One fall day we were outside doing a little yard work and a neighbor was driving by and stopped to ask what was the name of the beautiful orangish yellow flowers we had growing. LOL well we had to tell them "why pumpkins of course" they looked at us like we were crazy lol

Yep...we had the same issue. My wife had a couple of wildflower gardens around the house (which I despised) and every year we would end up with a couple of pumpkins growing in there. She always acted surprised, but I knew damn well she was putting the seeds there.

We always fought over gardens. I liked neat and orderly ones and she liked gardens that looked like they just sprung up naturally. I remember one year she planted a vegetable garden out behind the garage and I had a fit because all the rows were not straight....LOL.

I was a gardener most my life. I grew the most gorgeous flowers in Michigan and I can't grow anything but roses here in TN. I used to plant foxglove that would get 5 feet tall and have bell like blooms on 3-4 ft of the stems. I knew my soil and weather there in MI but I just can't get a handle on the soil or the weather here.

Maybe the groundhog can't read the calendar lol doesn't it automatically say Spring is that far off? I never really understood the groundhog predictions about as bad as the bear or panda picking the Super Bowl winners lol

We had a house on 3 acres up there so there was a lot of yardwork. My wife had a rose garden out front, and flower-gardens all around the house. I had one of those zero-radius riding mowers and had to mow carefully around her gardens. Once or twice (or maybe a hundred times) I accidnetally ran over some of her flowers. I can still see her standing there over those dead flowers with her hands on her hips....LOL.

When I would use the string trimmer she would follow me around to make sure I didn't whack any plants.
