This is Spring Break??


This is me yesterday...I was annoyed
and rightly so! It is April 16th people! Notice, not only do I look old and chubby, I look like I am dressed to go Christmas caroling. Three inches of the white stuff and cold temperatures. A wool coat, scarf and gloves...hmph!

I woke up this morning to the sound of my husband shoveling the drive way. There was a foot of snow out there! It is heavy and wet. (photos to follow) The dog is in shock, my satellite dish is full and getting no signal, my tulips are covered, my geraniums are dead. I am SO moving south.

YAY!! We'll start looking for a house for you...we have a few FOR SALE!! I must warn you, however, it's cold here too...TOO cold for my liking! I have already made myself a promise that when the temps exceed 100 degrees this summer, I will NOT complain!! I will be happy and cheerful...I WILL, I WILL, I WILL!!! I AM sorry about all that snow, it really IS ridiculous.

You know, I remember last year this happening and the 2 years before that when I was lifeguarding at BYU we had to close the pool for a week because of snow. For some reason, I think we just got an early glimpse at spring. Wait til May before deciding to move, you'll change your mind when St. George is having face melting heat and we have nice picnic weather.

Wow Marianne; That is what we will look like tomorrow. We are expecting yours to head this way A big one. It has been raining all day and is so-so-so cold. I will be happy to have some warm weather again. I can't tell you how many times it has gotten like spring here and then just when we are really enjoying it, the snow dumps on us again. Oh well, the good side is we really need the moisture, so we better not complain. Loved the picture you posted. Mom
