No, this is not a post I dug up from the archives. This is today, April 16, 2007. School is delayed due to inclement weather.
I heard rain all night, and when I awoke this morning it was silent, so I thought it had finally stopped. Until I looked outside and saw SNOW. In April. So much for global warming, huh? But I would never have imagined school would be delayed. Thank goodness for those automated phone calls from the school district.
I gave up on spring long before I saw snow this morning, so at this point my only complaint is that we didn’t get enough to go sledding. I mean, if it’s going to be 30 degrees and snow in April, let’s at least have some accumulation, people! I’m looking for a snow day, something to make it worth my while, not this wimpy two-hour slush. All that does is make things inconvenient and mucky.
Oh, well, I’ll take what I get, I suppose. Not that I have a choice. It does look like the end is in sight. This weekend it is supposed to return to spring-like temperatures with sunshine. But I’m not holding my breath.
