Fugly The Snowman

The warmer weather can’t come soon enough for you, dear…

My mini-vacay from work this week will be starting off the same way my week away from work at the beginning of the year was during its entirety…. very cold with a sprinkle of snow mixed in at times.  I don’t think we ever got more than an inch or two of the white stuff during that extended polar spell a month ago… but because it stayed below freezing for so long, it took a very long time for that shallow layer of snow to completely disappear.  And the snowmen that the neighborhood hooligans kids built over their Christmas breaks… well, two weeks into January, they were still standing… even though most of the supporting snow had disappeared around them.  This is the view at that later time of the house directly down the street from my front door… and you can see there’s a lot more snow in that pathetic looking snowman than there is on the ground.  The house caddy corner to that one (and out of the view of my domain) had a snowman that was literally standing in the middle of a snowless desert.  It looked a surreal sight to behold… but it was way too fucking cold to walk 500 feet just to take a picture of it and get strange looks from the neighbors…

  1. I always felt sorry for the Fuglies of this world… I once gave a Fugly my 5 bucks I’ve got from my granny for the movies and went home without seeing Snow White… my granny called me stupid and tried to get the money back from Fugly… but as she came to his place he had wasted the moneeh, ha!

    Poor thing, he looks so lonely……..

    Hey dude, don’t diss the snowman!
    It suddenly got very cold here. Down to zero! And it snowed a bit for the first time in years. Didn’t stick though. Then it rained. Here’s hoping it doesn’t all turn to ice overnight…

    • Down to 0!?!? OMG! Oh, wait, that’s only 32. There’s nothing worse than precip around the freezing line… you never know what you’re gonna get, but it probably won’t be good.

  4. We’ve had mostly traces of snow in our hood too and certainly not enough to build a fugly snowman or otherwise. The one legit snow storm we received was about 4″ and still remains as crunchy semi-white stuff (unless Sam stops by) on the north side of the house. I actually saw a blooming geranium on someone’s porch the day before yesterday! WTH? The mantra uttered every morning is “there is no such thing as climate change” repeated frequently just to keep from losing my environmental 💩 Yikes!

    • Our snow today was supposed to be semi crunchy as well (A “glaze of ice” is what the weatherman kept saying, over and over and over again….). There’s enough white out there to cover up the ground, but at 2 in the morning, I’m not about to go out and see if it’s glazed or not. Or if any flowers have poked up out of it (At least until there’s enough sunlight to take a proper photo!)

  6. Fugly is listing to the side just a tad…..too much to drink maybe?

    Is that snowman a cyclops? Or is that just his nose…? 😜

    Poor Fugly, he is looking pretty sad. I would be happy to have him in my yard though! We had a dusting of snow in November, about two inches on Christmas Eve and that was it for winter here. We haven’t even had a good hard frost this year. It’s pathetic. PNW “winters” suck!

    • You’ve had about as much snow as we’ve had then. The last two winters have been rather dry, and last year’s winter was even short… practically ending in mid February. But this year…. cold, colder, and fucking coldest! I’ll trade some of your maritime air for a little of our frost!

      • Trisha says:

        I really wish we could make that trade! Frost sounds beautiful and magical after all the rain and gloom we’ve had the past few months.

  9. We are supposed to get either a lot of snow — like a foot — or a couple of inches — or maybe some rain — or an ice storm — but something, for sure. I’m not really thrilled about it but it is winter, so life goes on. It’s just so dreary this time of year. Oh well. Are you getting the same storm or is it just us this time?

    • I’m not sure… I just occasionally hear the forecast and have an idea of what we may or may not be getting. Except for Nor’easters, I think most of your weather comes through us first.

    Snowman is beautiful. He is just melting.

  11. You could assist in the destruction of the snowman by getting him a hot water bottle…..!!

    Fugly is listing to the left because Rover from 2 houses over decided to say hello to him!
    Caddy corner?? WTF?? It’s Kitty-Corner !! OK, I just looked it up and low and behold, we are both right! 🙂 Happy?? I know I am! lol..
