I am tired of winter. Very, very, very tired of winter.

During a normal winter, Kansas gets cold. We get quite a bit of ice. We occasionally get some snow, but usually not a lot and it goes away pretty quickly.

This year, we have had snow on the ground almost non-stop since the middle of December. That it not normal. We got five inches of snow yesterday. This is the wettest winter season (at least in Topeka) on record since they started keeping records in 1880-something, and winter isn't even over yet. We have a chance of flurries this afternoon. (And the last couple times we were supposed to get "flurries," we've gotten multiple inches.) There's a chance of a rain/snow mix almost every day this week.

The groundhog wasn't kidding this year...

I hear you. As a transplanted Kansan, I feel your pain...Minnesota is in the grip of a viscious winter. We're slated for a heatwave on Thursday of 16 above zero. woohoo.
