There's No Snowing In April!

It's 4:32am. I've been awake since 3am.

Why, you ask? Um, because it's APRIL and there's a freakin' blizzard raging outside! The wind *the God-forsaken wind here!* is absolutely howling and I don't know if it's just me or if the house is actually gonna come down any second. The screen door out to the deck in our room sounds like it's coming off the hinges and how the sam-Hell my husband is sleeping through that kinda makes me want to check to make sure he's still breathing. And when I see that he is I should shake him and scream, "Can't you hear that?!?! Make it stop!"

Now, I realize that I've been in the south basically my whole life and aside from a few ice storms, winter is just a little colder than the rest of the year. It snowed maybe once a year back home and when it did, everything shut down. That meant no school and all the milk and bread in the grocery store was gone. Here? I'd almost bet there's someone out walking their dog here right now. I'm pretty sure I'll be migrating south for the winters.

But wait, this isn't winter! Since when doesn't April equal sunshine and flowers? Is this for real? I can't wrap my southern mind around it.
