Hi All,

I am new to this board, and just wanted to say hi. I am currently an emergency room RN in southcentral PA. Very very busy ER. This is my 6th year in the ER and my 9th year in nursing.

Is anyone else extremely tired of winter and ready for spring??

Hi, veetach. Winter on the central coast of CA can be very mild, and it is this year. No snow, like you are seeing. Not even much rain as of late. But ER is ER and we've got as much 'busy' as anywhere else in the country! In order to escape winter for a couple of weeks, you might consider a short term travel assignment to a CA emergency dept. Just don't bring the snow with you!

Well, all I can say from Texas, where winter is almost non existent is that I am jealous. Every year our family pays thousands to travel on a winter ski vacation and just visit the snow. I keep telling my husband that when he retires (in 8 years) that we are moving North. I suggested Alaska, where I can ride a snowmobile to work 8 months out of the year. He suggested the north east or the Rocky Mtns. I would be happy with either. Isn't it funny that we always want what we don't have. I can't wait to come and put snow tires and chains on my vehicle. My husband just thinks about all the new winter tools he can buy at the home improvement store. Guess we will both be happy then. Welcome from the deep south.
