WAITING FOR THE BIG THAW


With all the snow, ice and cold temps we've had... un-decorating the outside of the house from Christmas has proven difficult. There has always been something, weather related, interfering with getting the job done. Somehow I managed to pry the wreath with the big red bow off the front door. But currently on my porch, and in the front yard, there are half a dozen twig tree lights... and a 5ft green St. Nick frozen to the ground... covered with a foot of snow... making them impossible to remove.  So, there they sit... almost into February waiting for the BIG thaw, so I can put them away for December. With the winter we're having, I'm anticipating them being out there until then.

This is one Winter I will be glad to see winding down. It is very cold here, but we missed the icy conditions that has paralyzed a major portion of the southeast, we being a little north of it.
Take care,
DD

You are not the only one with Christmas still decorating their house. Many haven't had a chance to get it done due to the weather. Early in January we had one warmer weekend and I got mine down then. I didn't have much out anyway. Take care and keep warm . Better weather will come...it may just take awhile. We're to get more snow tomorrow and on the weekend.

I certainly feel for you there and the outside work. This cold stuff is slowing down every thing...

You will get there, just a little slower than the other years....

We finally brave the arctic blast and removed our wreaths from the windows! Stay warm and Happy Wednesday!

A little festivity from the holidays left! But I know you want to get warmer temps to start living again and not be stuck inside the house! Let's hope soon!

At least you will be ready when Christmas season comes again. Just kidding, I'm sure the weather there is a hassle.

I am in Atlanta GA - in a state of emergency - took my husband 24 hours to get home! I am tired of snow too.

I love tree lights in the yard. My sister has some she keeps year-round.

I'd just get them down when I could. In the meantime stay warm!!

Best to take down your holiday lights when the weather allows you to do it safely.

Take care

Surely by June you'll be able to pry Santa off the ground :)

This crazy weather this winter just doesn't want to give us a break for long, does it? Hope you have warmer, thawing days soon!

Funny because we had snow a few days ago (first time since 2010, I think) and I was wishing I still had our Christmas lights up! =)

I don't know if I lost your comment I was sending you. Thank you TerryTare for being so supportive, I do appreciate it. I was used to the A-fib but the anemia was a total surprise. I hope to get back to where I can drive agfain. Hope hubby is breathing better.

Taryterre,
I can see why you have kept that green Santa Claus on your front porch for so long. It's soooo cute, and not to mention all the snow was covering it! I wish I could see the front of your house. I know you are getting tired of it, but to me it would look like a winter wonderland.

I bet it feels good putting the decorations away until next year.

Love,
~Sheri

There were Christmas trees waiting to be recycled outside my building for weeks. They've disappeared, but not sure when the Sanitation crew will get to the recycling again.

Things have finally started to thaw a bit here. It actually got up into the 50s today. I think there will be some rain on Thursday, so I guess it will be muddy for a while now.
