I’m calling it

I’ve had it with winter. The first snow always seems lovely and beautiful and wonderful…but after too many months of the icy, cold mess, I’d like spring to arrive. So, when I looked at this week and saw that our temperatures are going to be on the plus side and not below zero, I was elated.

My Canadian friends still grumble that there is more snow on it’s way. But I’m done with winter. Daring to go against the wrath of Mother Nature, I’m putting away my boots and calling it an early spring.

Bring on the sunshine!

A funny sort of Spring

We’re getting snow. I kid you not. It’s snowing outside and I have the pictures to prove it.

Mother Nature has lost her pretty, little mind. Either that or she has forgotten that it’s April and by all rights we should be having nice weather.

We should have known. After the worse winter in years, the last five days or so have been warm days with temperatures on the plus side. Delighted, we started to shed layers. The sun was getting into the act as well and shining like he meant it. The banks of snow started to shrink and the birds were singing. Spring was in the air and in everyone’s mind. When I saw a few blades of green grass, I almost cried for joy.

The akitas started panting and ran outside to hug the remaining snow.

Then today, we woke up to this.

Obviously, Mother Nature thinks snow is the new black.

The akitas think this is the bomb. Having found the Land of Perpetual Winter, they’re running outside in mad circles celebrating.

I beg to differ.
