Snow...happy spring????

March 24th, 2013 at 08:34 pm

Well, here in Central Illinois we are getting snow. Lots of it. And blowing and then it is supposed to freeze hard tonight. Gosh, those weather forecasters are just full of good news.

DH and I went to hadn't started yet. We got home and had brunch and it started. Big, wet, flakes.

We've been out twice to shovel. We learned our lesson a few years ago that it is far better to go out and shovel a few times than try to move many inches of heavy, wet snow. One person on Facebook told me to wait and then admitted they don't shovel. I am assuming we will have school tomorrow, so I need to get out of the driveway.

Other than my complaining, I need to count my blessings as well. We are in a warm shelter...we have plenty to eat, and I can change into dry clothes after coming in from shoveling.

And, spring is coming...right?

    At least at this time of year it can't last long. We were lucky in the Chicago area to miss this storm, but it certainly isn't springlike.

    Hi Rob, know how you feel, fellow central Illinois saver and foodie here. Just keep staring out the window today, snow is still coming down! It is beautiful but it is almost April!

    On a good note we made some awesome homemade burgers this afternoon as our one meal of the day, and other than a cup of tea out with my brother, it was a no spend day.

    Hope to see central Illinois turn to typical April weather soon (that is, cold wet and grey)

    Well, at 9:30 p.m. we are showing over a foot of snow. Ick! Bingo, believe me, I am ready for a different precipitation that isn't white, flaky, and cold. Brrrr!
