I think I would rather deal with the snow and cold. At least you can still get outside, exercise, ski, etc. And our summers usually don't have long stretches of heat where you have to stay indoors. Temps over 95F just don't work for me. The heat keeps me indoors way more than the cold.
I'm beginning to rethink this post of mine from a few days ago. Just got done with another couple of hours of snow blowing and shoveling. Since Jan 24 we've had over 5 feet of snow - I've run the snow blower 11 hrs. More snow due on Thursday, then zero degrees for the weekend.
Jo, you had commented that we seem to have a nice neighborhood. It really is, good neighbors, quiet, private. Not too many places around here where you can have complete privacy in the back yard, but our house has that, at least in the summer when the leaves are on the trees.
We're at the top of a steep hill, and the road is only one lane wide. Nice in the summer, but not so great for heating oil deliveries in weather like this. We're on automatic delivery, but Friday I noticed we were running low, so I called the company. They said they would come out on Saturday, which would have been great. I was out all day, and when I got home I realized they didn't show. Uh oh. No way they were going to get up here today, probably not tomorrow. We have a small tank, 165 gallons, and we were at 1/8 of a tank. About 6 inches of fuel, suction out the top of the tank through a drop tube. Worried we were going to lose the prime on the burner, so in the storm today I went out and got 10 gallons of diesel and poured it in. Hopefully they can get the truck up the hill by Wed or Thurs, before it snows again. I don't particularly want to keep adding 10 gallons at a time for another week.
When I went out for fuel, I did see something I had never seen before - there is so much snow, I drove by a house where the kids were jumping out a second floor window into a snow bank.
I do enjoy shooting birds through the kitchen window on days like this:
