Old Man Winter...kiss my @ss!!

A recent post was made and may have implied a fondness for winter on my part. I think it was the nostalgia conjured up from the first snow of the year. It brings back memories of hot cocoa, sledding and the coveted snow days off from school. However, let me set the record straight....winter and snow sucks!!!

These pictures were taken in the first few hours of the "Blizzard of '08". When all was said and done we had 3-4 ft snow drifts in front of the house and on the road. We might have considered it an opportunity to get cozy on the couch and ride it out had Michael not been scheduled to be in Cleveland the next day for training. Let me say it again...winter and snow suck!!

Now that spring has sprung and my flower beds are full of beautiful daffodils, tulips and other pretties I've yet to identify, the memory of that awful cold, white stuff is distant. Next year I'll make sure to read old entries before waxing poetic about the "beautiful" snow. For now, I'm just enjoying the sight of laundry on the line, new flowers emerging from the soil and the sound of my kids. Outside, finally!!
