Dear Mother Nature

Dear Mother Nature,

Today is March 26. I do not currently appreciate your sense of humor.

Measurable snow is totally and completely acceptable from December 1 through February 28. Any snow before or after those dates must be approved by a majority vote of all those who would be affected by your sudden burst of independence.

I have yet to find anyone in our area who approves of your latest move. Did someone or something upset you? Did you perhaps push the wrong button on the weather computer? Or are you just trying to show us that you can basically do what you want, when you want?

Don't get me wrong...I thoroughly enjoy the snow accumulations you have given us this year, as they were between the pre-approved dates (see above) and resulted in a few extra days off from school. I didn't even complain when you caused us to go over our limit of five calamity days, thus requiring us to make up two days in June. That's okay. I can deal with that.

There must be almost 2" of snow outside. The grass is not visible through the snow. I do, however, find a little satisfaction in the fact that Ted was considering taking the snow plow off the lawn tractor and I told him I thought that would be a mistake. He listened to me.

So, my dear friend Mother Nature, please take note of the date the next time you decide to shower us with the white stuff. It would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Great post Cindi. I know just how you feel. Thankfully we did not get this snow and it is sunny, if a bit cool (32F) today. Tomorrow it should start to warm up again.

That's what you get for taking all our snow this winter. . . we had one snowfall!!!!!!!!!!! Compared to 20 last year. YES, I keep track as I love snow. Yes, I am jealous. Where's your photos? Could have at least shared your snow. I would have even volunteered to shovel your sidewalks, driveways, etc. sigh

Hurry up spring!
