Temps went up over the last few days. Today we had thunder on the right and pounding rain. Next week the temps will drop back into the deep freezer and we'll shiver in our blankets.

Everyone is moaning about spring. Folks, it's FEBRUARY. Winter. Not time for daffodils or crocuses or any of those other harbingers of spring. Depending on where you live, they'll show up in late March or even April.

While I admit I'm not a fan of twenty-inch snowfalls, a lot of the USA is suffering from drought. And cold temps help kill off bugs and pests so it's all good. There's a reason for the seasons. Every change is beneficial for our environment.

So. Enjoy the sunny breezes of this latest interlude. Take the opportunity to shovel some of the snow to the side. Open a window to air out the house or apartment. Be thankful for your blessings. And when the snow and cold returns, remember those flakes will bring beautiful flowers when spring arrives.


  1. Yeah - weather happens as it's always meant to happen. It's bucketing down rain here in the tropics but hey - it's the monsoon season. You gotta expect that.

  2. Yup. You're right Anny. Now send us some of your rain!
