Big Snow and a Whole Lot of Cold

While most of the time I love Wisconsin, this winter has been very trying on my patience.  Not only is this the worst winter I've ever had with seasonal affective disorder, we have had more below zero temps than I can remember in any one season.  Last summer was the shortest growing season on record because of how late spring came.  I'm praying this year isn't the same story, but, wow, do we have a lot of snow on the ground!  The snow banks at the end of our driveway are taller than our SUV!  6+ feet!
Good grief.  Wake me when its over.
The cold has also been slowing down my resin crafting.  Cold resin = micro bubbles because the viscosity is way high when cold.  There is a warming technique that involves a warm water bath for the resin bottles, but the last time I tried that it didn't end well.  I ended up pitching a smoking, melting plastic cup of resin into a snow bank.  Hahaha!
