Doo Doo Doo Doo, Feelin' Snarky

Every time I try to put my down parka away for the season, I have to get it out again because more snow has arrived. Yesterday it started raining around 5:00 p.m. By 8:00 p.m. it was snow. This morning there is a coating of snow and ice all over, and the sky is still gray. More wet stuff on the way.


Took the dog for a walk this morning and the crows were out in force in our neighborhood. Not sure why, but that gathering of crows (a murder of crows?) seems to be a spring phenomenon here. Everywhere we walked, there were black crows glaring down at us from trees overhead, cawing for all they were worth. Walking the dog is like something out of a Hitchcock film this time of year.

I cleaned all my floors yesterday, but April snow inevitably leads to mud. So if the temperature warms up later today, I'll be getting my steam mop out again tonight.


Okay, enough snarkiness. Time to get on with the day, whatever shape it takes!

SNOW!!! EWWW! I may have heard that we are in for something similar later this week but I plugged my ears and sang lalalalala...just got home from a trip south. The weather there...sigh. Too gorgeous. We do have a taste of spring today so I'm trying to enjoy. We've had snow in April before and I agree with you. Yuk.

Hope you have a great day anyway!
