Like maybe SUMMER?

It is April-the time of Crocus blooming, Daffodils coming up out of their Winter hidey-holes, grass beginning to green up again. And our weather forecast for today & tomorrow?freezing rain, ice pellets & snow! In the Winter-never a good thing, not a time to be trying to go anywhere if you can avoid it. But in April-a time to get out of town-move in with Elspeth or 'nester!

Alas-no invitations were forthcoming-so I shall stay here & await the end of it. It is almost noon,nothing has actually started-though it is in Toronto (about 2 1/2hrs west of us)& I notice our neighbour came home from work-she works an hour west of us. So it is coming-all my hoping the weather office was wrong did not work. Mike says we have gas for the generator-we have propane for the barbeque so I can cook on that if need be...time to prove how tough we Canadians are.

But Geesh-in APRIL? 'nough already!

We're up and down - got to the 80s/low 60s for a few days; today's high is about 50 and tonight will go to 35, same with tomorrow (when we're going to the baseball game in the evening - brr!)  Then Sunday goes back up to 71.  Boing, boing...

it was raining lightly this morning but now it has turned to snow falling!  We are experiencing lower than normal temperatures for this time of year.  It's been cloudy a lot, and only one day was it so-called-warmer but nothing wonderful...and it was cloudy that day too.  We are looking forward to some nice spring weather too!  In the meantime, we can't put our winter jackets too far away yet!

We have been lucky so far, no snow or freezing rain but the kids in Toronto were complaining by 10 this morning that they had a lot of snow already. I'm so sick of snow & cold!!!!! Plus I'm in serious need of sun to get some colour in my face or I will look like a ghost for the wedding. Dee (sorry to brag but this has been an amazing week to access ivillage.
