April 5, 2012 Tons of Snow

 This post is completely off topic but I just had to complain about our weather. On the Canadian prairies we get extremes in weather often within the same day. A common saying here is "if you don't like the weather now, wait a couple of hours".


This is what I saw out the window this morning. As you can see, the street is full of slushy, heavy, wet snow. It makes driving really treacherous so I am glad that I don't have to go anywhere today.

April is here and it is supposed to be spring. We should be getting ready for the kids to start baseball and soccer. It is not supposed to snow. On the weekend, I was thinking about raking up the thatch on the lawn and getting the flower beds ready. 

Below is our lawn swing in the yard. Its a good thing we didn't put the cushions on it yet. 
Those round things in the next picture are wooden planter tubs and believe it or not there is a sidewalk under all that white stuff. This is our back gate.
Yes, fresh, white, fluffy snow can be pretty to see. At this time of year, it also quite wet so it makes excellent snowballs and snowmen. The kids love it.

I have had enough of winter though. I would like it to go away and come back after October when I have had enough sun and warm temperatures. At this point, the only fluffy white stuff I want to see is the milk froth at the top of my capuccino so I intend to wait until it changes. Somehow, I think it will take longer than a couple of hours.
