Spring in Minnesota

It is April 20th today. April. A popular saying I remember from elementary school says, "April showers bring May flowers." Everyone in Minnesota has been complaining that spring has been late in coming. While we had a glorious weekend in the high 70's, lately the temperatures have dropped and the skies have been cloudy. Where are the showers to bring the flowers? This morning, I woke to the sounds of birds chirping and flying around. I smiled liking the sounds of spring. But when I opened my eyes and looked out the window I was unprepared for the sight that greeted me - falling snow! Let's just say I am NOT happy! Good thing I'm off for South America next week!


  1. that doesn't happen in SF...pretty sure the weather here is perfect for you!

  2. I'm coming hooooooome on Friday...it had better be gone!
