I’m sitting at the kitchen table watching the snow flakes meander through the back yard. I can’t believe my eyes but, outside, the bitter howling wind tells me it’s real though it’s been spring for a week.
Surely Mother Nature had something positive in mind when she refused to admit Spring! Can I think of anything good about this?
- Lovely to look at, snow contrasting with new green grass.
- My fuzzy new winter coat will get to be worn.
- This dose of winter will make us appreciate the warmth when it comes…if it comes!
- Can’t wash the Casita!
- Lots of time to prepare the taxes as there is no desire to go outside.
- Can look forward to a tasty meal of Wendy’s chili tonight….chili is better when it’s cold outside.
- The cold will help kill the bugs…..(heard this all my life and hope it’s true).
- Reminds me why I am glad to be a southerner. Can’t fathom 14 inches…(better you than me, Carla!)
- Lesson learned! If you are somewhere warm, stay there until April!
- And, the best thing, it will be gone soon!
Desperately clutching at straws here!
One more wintry day before the temperature starts climbing toward the 60’s.
Last Monday night, while still at Miller’s Ferry, a huge storm hit us with lightening, rain, wind and hail. The new antenna was lowered and we hunkered down, watching the hail pile up outside and weathering our first storm in a long time.
A few days later we are heading to the fiberglass egg rally at Joe Wheeler State Park in Rogersville, AL.
This is a great place for a rally! The park had electric, water and sewer hookups, an enclosed pavilion with a fireplace and was located on a lake. Sounds like a great egg gathering!
But it was 26 degrees Thursday morning and we wimped out, leaving after 24 hours of fighting the brutal wind. I was ready to be home, out of the cold.
Florence, Alabama friends’ egg.
No plans to travel for a few weeks…it’s time to work around the house and yard…..when we can!
