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.

That's why your father and I moved to Arkansas when you were 6 months old. It was November, incidently, and about 5 degrees that Halloween in Nebraska. We tried to spare you this pain but no! You had to move BACK to Nebraska. At this point, it's beyond what I can do to help. And just wait till summer. It's like 102 degrees and with the wind, it feels like you're living in a dryer.

Oh honey...that aint right. Is there a bright side here? Maybe that after all this shit you'll love summer all the more? No?

We had such a mild winter that I am almost certain we are due for a crazy spring!

Darcy said...

Yeah, I'm in Iowa (we moved from CA) and we got about 6 inches of snow today. What the hell? One day - green grass, next day - blizzard. It's just dumb.

Welcome to the club! I am actually hoping for snow SO IT WILL WARM UP!!!

It was 22 today.

ANYWAY look at it this way, you can hide the easter eggs easily.

1. Boil the eggs
2. Throw eggs in front and back yards full of snow. (This will cool them off quickly AND hide them for you.)
3. Get a Peep for the basket and bite it's head off as you walk to bed!

See way easier than hiding under bushes or around flowers!
