Gray was the word I would use most
and extreme the next, 14 inches of snow, -15 degrees
and yucky for our days of freezing rain which made it hard to deal with -- ICE.
I felt this would be a "winter"
and it is shaping up to meet my expectations.
I would have rather been proven wrong on this.
No sense grumping about the weather. It is not going to change it!
but less gray, extreme and yucky would be pleasant.
