moving on

Now that we got that out of the way we can go back to worrying about cutting the grass instead of getting the driveway plowed. Winter's brief backdoor break-in is done. Unfortunately now the only way we will get to see daffofils is in a vase inside and not growing out in the yard where they were before they were so rudely interrupted. Mary had the foresight to gather these blooms from around the yard Tuesday before the onslaught so all semblance of Spring wouldn't be lost.

So now we are temporarily looking at this through the kitchen window instead of the greening of the bushes and the already green grass. With a few days of warmer temperatures all this will be just a blip in our memories of this Spring.

Those 8" of sloppy wet snow are already reduced by half this morning, so we know that by next week we will wonder what all the fuss was about.

Time to quit whining about the weather since we can't do anything about it anyway. Come summer we will wish for some of this cold and wet while we complain about the heat during the inevitable days of near drought in late July. There will always be weather, like it or not, so all our complaining is wasted energy. Let's move on.

Cold here too, and you're right, no use complaining. I don't ever complain about the heat, there's no such thing as too hot for me.

Snow? YUCK! Hope the weekend was happy with family anyway.

No use complaining, but it is tiresome after a while. We are in the middle of a three day deluge - my backyard is flooded and I am afraid to see what is happening in my basement. The daffodils are lovely -thanks for sharing!
