Snow, Snow, GO AWAY!

I'm just going to get my whining out of the way first thing. I'm sick of snow. It's cold and gray and it's snowing...again. About half of the days we've seen in April have brought some sort of wintry precipitation. And the forecast for the remainder of this week has a chance of rain/snow showers every day. We're still wearing sweaters and jackets and hats and gloves, and I'm SO ready for spring. We've had a few glimpses of it, but nothing that seems to last. Ugh.




We have some company in this week from Kentucky. One of Will's best little buddies, plus his mom and sister are staying with us this week. It's their spring break and I feel sorta sorry for them since we're having such lovely, snowy weather. So much for spring break, huh?

*I wrote this post earlier this afternoon. Since that time, it stopped snowing, the sun came back out and even though it's still cold, all the snow melted. Our monthly community newspaper came this afternoon. One of my favorite features in this paper is the monthly weather statistics page. We had a whopping 26.1 inches of snow in
M-A-R-C-H! See, you'd be tired of it too.

Most of the winter I was jealous of your snow but I can't say the same anymore. :-( We had 70 degrees and sunshine today and this weekend! But we are in line for bad storms and tornados this week - I would rather have snow that tornados.

I would, indeed. But we're still having cold days also.

Oh please let the sun shine tomorrow in full force!

Sounds like our forecast.

Temperature-wise, we're riding the line this week between rain and snow.

But the sun? It's not showing up. It's content to stay over Florida and Hawaii, apparently.

Maybe this wouldn't be a good time to post the video of my girls jumping on the trampoline yesterday...in their swim suits with the sprinkler on!
Our time to whine will come--in August. :)

I am sorry that you are not able to enjoy Spring yet. Hopefully the snow will come to end soon.

I posted yesterday about my boys getting sunburned, what a contrast from your day. I am with Kecia - wait till July and I will be complaining about the 100 degree days.

Enjoy your visit with your company! :o)
