I hate to complain, but

This was the scene in our front yard last Thursday, and this was after it had almost all melted -

The 14th of April and it snowed.


OK, the earth is not shaking,

The wind is not switching,

The house is not pitching,




and the hinges are not unhitching -

But it is the middle of April, and it's snowing!

Beautiful clear starry skies at night - frost in the morning. It is cold for the middle of April and yes, we don't want to complain, but....

Since I prefer cold to hot and the images from other parts of the country on the news are so awful, I am practically singing hallelujah here....

It snowed quite a bit here yesterday but then melted. I am not sure when the garden will be planted.

It is exceptionally cold. There was a heavy frost here just last night. The waning moon is lovely, though. Garden... poor tomato starts - I need bigger pots! At least my neighbor (with a greenhouse!) took the tomatoes and they were better sheltered last night! The "S" word is in the forecast again.
