Default Is it starting to happen: NE folks getting winter rage...

I remember when I joined here there was the discussion about what happens when our Northern friends have to pull their boats for the winter... they get cranky. I remember it when I lived there...

Seems as though, lately, the Northern Winter Rage has really cranked up.

As a side learning - I fall into the "Go Fast Center Console Florida Redneck" crowd - which I was unaware of.

2 most recent examples.

If any of you Winter Ragers need to get away - c'mon down - it's mid 80's today and the cobia are in!

Is that a free invite to stay at your place??

Winter sucks up here. It sucks even more I wish I was through boot camp during the whole thing rather than snow blowing and fixing computers.

Your southern brethren are going to be pissed at that remark!

On second thought, SSF is on vacation wishing he brought his soap on a rope

I was up at 4a and there was not a flake. By 7am, I had 4 fresh inches on the ground. By 7p, it's supposed to be about a foot.

I can't wait to go play in it with my kids and dog. Sure, I'd like to take the boat out and I miss fishing, but man, if you can't have fun in the snow, you're probably dead. Cold without snow sucks, but snow is awesome.

Long winter brings salt shortage, steeper prices...

More salt for you Yankees = more money for me!

Yeah, this is getting old - does not help that I humped my way into the office this morning like a good soldier and the heat in the building is out-58 degrees inside. It's wearing on me....

But we have four seasons up here. We get to see the leaves change. We appreciate the Summer more because of the Winter. Blah, blah, blah. Give me sun and warmth! This cold and snow sucks.

I'd love to move to Florida, but I keep hearing it's full.

Yeah I can see you being pissed; there would be no way you could do your janitorial work via a computer from home.
How did you know I was a janitor?

It simply SUCKS living here. How I wish Global Warming was real and our winters wouldn't get below 50 degrees.

All I hear is that the earth is warming, yet...... I've seen nothing but more cold.....
