What could possibly be more ridiculous than it being the 9th of April and we should be experiencing those April Showers that bring May showers and what do we see falling outside SNOW. They are predicting 3-6 inches of the white stuff here and it is about enough to make you scream, run around the living room and or throw yourself against the wall. Can you tell I am sick of Winter. I want to see the sun and it be warm enough to melt the still snow covered yard. At this point it will be June and we will be wishing we were cutting our grass but instead we are waiting for the frost to go out of the ground. For those of you freaks who love seeing more of the white stuff, I have to ask, what is the point of the snow this time of year. The lakes are thawed out and can’t fish, the ski resorts are closed cause their snow isn’t good for skiing, the cross country trails are a wreck and not usable. The woods aren’t good for snowshoeing and the ice is mostly gone for skating. So really you have to ask yourself, am I sick if I like seeing the snow this time of year? So the survey is what do you think of snow in April?
Okay so last night the snow turned to rain and we woke up to slushy mush. Figuring that was a good sign, I got somewhat excited that there was hope. Then about 3:00 p.m. today it started snowing again….AND IT IS STILL SNOWING. If mother nature could be touched, I am sure I would pull a three stooges move on her, maybe poke her in the eyes, slap her upside the head or ‘accidently hit her with a ladder.’ Of course, for those of you who think that is too violent, if we could have her pantsed in front a large a group of her peers as she comes out of the school gym locker room (my apologies if that sounds like a personal experience for any of you). So anyway, here we are the 11th of April, under a Snow Advisory and trying to figure out why the say that more babies are made during a long winter than any other time of the year. Well I think we know the reason, at least for those of you who know where babies come from.
